Our love's unlimited
Vinyl record in the grooves of forever, bass and treble
Serve This Royalty by Big KRIT

Krit compares their love to never-ending music, beautiful and unlimited. Just like bass and treble compliment each other perfectly and make up most music, KRIT and his girl are a perfect fit and create their love (the “vinyl record”).

“Grooves of forever” could also be a double entendre, with “grooves” meaning music instead of the grooves in a vinyl. In this case, the “groove of forever” would mean never-ending music.

So you gotta serve this royalty
Believing in me and my dreams
Serving this royalty right
Trust what I say and what I see and we can get it
Serve This Royalty by Big KRIT

KRIT is trying to convince this girl to stay with him, but she might have her doubts about KRIT’s career. However, if she trusts him, he’ll take her to glory with him.

“This royalty” is of course referring to KRIT, a King Remembered In Time.

These lines are taken from Cody ChesnuTT’s song of the same name, which serves as the main sample of this track.

My words are heavy like a Chevy, shall I roll on? Serve This Royalty by Big KRIT

An average vehicle weighs about 4000 pounds, and what KRIT’s saying to this girl holds a lot of weight as well. KRIT could be questioning whether he wants to continue (“roll on”) telling this girl he loves her or if he should end it.

Also notice the wordplay of Chevy and roll on.

I paint pictures of hieroglyphics compared to most rap niggas Meditate by Big KRIT

Hieroglyphics are ancient written languages that use symbols to represent different things. These symbols are really hard to decipher and can be really complicated.

Compared to other rapper’s simple lyrics, KRIT’s lyrics seem like a whole different language because of their beauty and complexity.

This line could also possibly be a reference to the Cali rap collective Hieroglyphics.

I was searching for some answers at a bar with some dancers
And I found out there really ain't none
Meditate by Big KRIT

Just like alcohol, strippers don’t solve KRIT’s problems. While they may appear to be fulfilling, they won’t help KRIT stop doubting himself or get back where he came from.

This contrast between sin and truth is a common theme in KRIT’s music, as displayed on the 4eva N A Day cover art.

Why is it my artistry rots
Everytime I bring reference to a broad on my jock
Cars on my lot, all my money balled in a knot
Mars Remix by Blu

Subject matter is an important part of art and music, especially hip-hop. Blu feels that when he raps about generic topics such as women, cars, and money, the artistic value of his work is compromised.
