To me, Peter’s gates are like an open door
Yet I still don’t feel no pressure at the ocean floor
RG 2013 Rap Battle Round 0 by TBosh

Another biblical reference, I can easily make my way into heaven because my flow is so godly. Peter’s gates are the entrance to heaven in the Bible.

While I can easily have my way on top of the world, I also have no problems at the bottom of it. An average person would die from all the water pressure at the bottom of the ocean, but obviously I’m not an average person.

You wack guys need to tighten flows like slack lines RG 2013 Rap Battle Round 0 by TBosh

Slacklining is a sport where you basically walk across a flat rope. You need to tighten the Slackline before you walk across it so you don’t fall on your ass like these wack guys' verses.

They’re probably wack because they slack when they write their lines.

Giant shit; Andre 3k, I’m that fine
I’m gritty though I still got a pretty flow
RG 2013 Rap Battle Round 0 by TBosh

“Giant shit” is an obvious reference to the previously mentioned Jack and the Beanstalk, as well as Andre the Giant.

I’m comparing the quality of my bars to Andre 3000 of Outkast, one of the greatest rappers of all time.

3000-grit sand paper, while gritty, is very fine.

Have your seven seconds of fame, I’m climbing Jack’s vine RG 2013 Rap Battle Round 0 by TBosh

Vine is a social networking app where you film and share 7 second videos. Your “seven seconds of fame” is like 15 minutes of fame, only shorter because you can’t rap.

But I’m way past short-term success, I want to ascend to the heavens and become a legend (just like Jack and the Beanstalk).

This is one of the many sky references in this verse

My quotes are so potent, they could stone the lord
That’s a high sky walker, this a potent force
RG 2013 Rap Battle Round 0 by TBosh

If there was weed as powerful as my bars, it would be able to get God himself stoned. Of course, God is already pretty high, as he apparently lives in (and walks on) the sky.

“Sky walker” and “force” are obviously references to Star Wars.

My oral sword could overthrow the Golden Horde RG 2013 Rap Battle Round 0 by TBosh

The Golden Horde was a division of the Mongol empire back in the 13th-16th centuries. And it was big.

But my rapping (“oral sword”) is so good that it could destroy such a powerful thing.

I've scarred my knees What We All Want by Shad (Ft. Relic The Oddity)

Shad has been praying so much that his knees are scarred from kneeling on the ground.

Similar to Andre’s line in Ms. Jackson.

Like stars to bleed light when its hard to see What We All Want by Shad (Ft. Relic The Oddity)

Rapping provides Shad with happiness and hope for the future in the “night sky” of his mind.

This could also be a reference to a guiding star, such as the North Star in the Bible. This would mean that rapping gives Shad a direction and purpose in his life.

Next I'm gonna buy myself some shades
So if I'm out today, I won't have to look at you
Goodmorning Sunshine by Quasimoto

It’s common for people to wear shades to cover their tears when they mourn their relatives. Quas, however, is buying them to simply shield the sun.
