I believe he’s referring to the mentality of Youths in Compton, who’ll rob someone simply because they have money. Your power is theirs because they took your money(Power).
That’s Ab-Soul dude, how can you get them confused?? They sound nothing alike, at all.
He may not necessarily mean a literal thief coming to rob & kill him, it could simply be an enemy. If your murdered, technically the one who committed said murder, robbed you of your life… Which would make that person a thief in a way.
No, He’s referring to an Arc, that you commonly walk ‘Under’ hence the “UnderCover”
Nice wordplay from Ab-soul here.
“Her Body language get’s read/red like a Ruby."
He’s saying that you can read her intentions/emotions as clear as Ruby is red.
I believe he’s referring to the attention he knew he’d receive for this verse. Jay usually raps straight-forward and heavy, yet keeps it moderately simple and normally won’t display his Lyricism… So most were surprised by this.
He’s the Silent Assassin of the ‘Four-headed Dragon’. He’s comparing his Labelmates/supergroup to a Dragon, considering they spit hot fire.
“Devil In a dress” is a pun on the famous Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels song “Devil With A Blue Dress On”. It was popularized by Kanye’s track “Devil in a Dress” off his My Dark Twisted Fantasy.
The analogy is mainly used to describe beautiful, yet deceitful women… at times comparable to a gold-digger, but their antics can sometimes exceed simply wanting your money.
When Busta pulls up in his ‘Lac, that’s when shit goes south.
He also believes that his hold is capable of squeezing a whale into the size of a lobster’s tail
“That Shit” is referring to his music, which people fiend for as if it’s a drug. He gives it to them, but he always has time to tie his “Shoestrings” or basically help himself.
