going back to the first two lines, his “heavy metal” includes guns and knives. He’s willing to stab someone as much as shoot someone. He won’t waste ammo on weaker targets and when he does shoot, he’s hitting you first shot.
he’s referring to common prison shankings. You stab someone in the anus because not only is it easier to hide the act of stabbing but it takes less force to cause more damage ripping one’s rectum open.

WC not Dub C
also a play on “Hollywood Swingin” by Kool and the Gang
The Komradz also served a prison sentence before being signed to the Hoo-Bangin label. They also make other mentions of their stint such as on “Mack 10 Mack 10”
I think he says “Castle” which would refer to the last line being done with the simple materialistic spending on Chains and Pendants, he wants to deck out his mansion/castle. Take the flashing to another level.
