Subtle reference to Kanye West (who produced this song)’s (“Gold Digger”)[http://rapgenius.com/37718]
now I ain’t sayin' he a gold digger
But she ain’t messin' with no broke niggas
F4 is the computer key for leave. F1 is for help, which would also be appropriate; these bitches want her help (collab), but she’s just gonna kill ‘em instead.
He definitely pronounces it like “mason” (the French word “maison” would be pronounced kind of like “maizon”), probably just to fuck with the Freemason/Illuminati conspiracy theorists.
Whatever it means, it’s certainly the only Gudda Gudda line anyone’s ever going to care about.
And the same goes with rap fans. He might be a giant asshole, but damned if you’re not bumping his music. He doesn’t need to convince anyone, they’re going to just go with him.
Possibly a subliminal shot at 50 Cent. The two rappers famously released albums on the same day, with 50 swearing that if Kanye outsold him, 50 would stop rapping. The rivalry was played up on both sides in the weeks before the releases (“after all the drama”), and Kanye came out comfortably on top (“K slayed ‘em”).
Also soldiers, who do not walk around in civilian clothes. A nice, respectful shout-out to the military.
A clever line. Could mean since he was an infant (baby bottles) but could also mean since he was an impressionable adolescent, lacking a positive influence and turning to alcohol (beer/liquor bottles). Keep in mind the title of the album!
Also a call-back to “Jesus Walks” “I know I act a fool, but I’ll be gone ‘til November, I got packs to move”
