I'm comin with the fatness, never lean
But staying hungry like Katniss Everdeen
RapGenius Battle, Round 1: vs. Alex Ruffin by Efemjay

efemjay says he’s delivering “fatness” — quality rap music; “never lean,” meaning he’s always fat. And yet he’s staying “hungry” (despite being fat and never lean) — metaphorically hungry.

He compares this “hunger” to that of the protagonist of The Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen.

Or drop you in the hood with a sign that says
Fuck Obama, George Zimmerman for Pres
RapGenius Battle, Round 1: vs. Alex Ruffin by Efemjay

As an alternative to making him fight in Kony’s army, efemjay says he might drop his opponent in the hood with a sign that not only says “Fuck Obama!” but “George Zimmerman for President.”

Obama is popular in the hood. George Zimmerman, the man who killed Trayvon Martin, is not. It would probably not be a good idea to actively campaign against Obama and for Zimmerman in the hood.

This verse is part of the RapGenius.com battle-rap tournament. At one point, it was rumored that the grand prize would be a new beat produced by Wu-Tang Clan beat-maker the Rza. Here, efemjay says he doesn’t need the grand prize, because “brass tacks” the Rza pays him to rap on his beats. This is a boast. It is not actually “fact.”
