So high that he’s not sure if he’ll ever sober-up…

The 1st 2 lines are from this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoMmbUmKN0E

This could be a critique on the way Johnny Manziel’s every move gets covered. For example, when Manziel was sent home from the Manning Passing Camp where he was participating as a counselor. Ordinarily, this would barely qualify as news but the sports media made a big deal about it simply because it was Johnny Manziel. So this Gundy interpretation could be saying, “these Manziel stories aren’t even news, it’s just garbage…and the people who are covering these sensationalized stories are garbage”

The rest is a voiceover of OB O'Brien impersonating Dan Hawkins (which starts at 0:44) referring to Texas A&M, the university that Johnny Manziel was quarterback for.

Notice that A&M is in the SEC compared to the BIG-12.

In relation to Drake’s beef/drama, this is a big metaphor about how Jay Z, fans, and members of the media are blowing his remarks (particularly in his recent Rolling Stone article) out of proportion. He doesn’t pay attention to it and in essence calls out rappers/musicians to stick their true calling, music.

Also, Drake had beef with Rolling Stone because the main editor took out Drake as the cover and printed things that weren’t supposed to be included in the issue. Read more about that here.

Qatar is currently the world’s richest nation. This is largely in part because of the rebound of oil prices and Qatar’s massive oil reserves.

Oil is a main reason why Qatar is so wealthy and Drizzy is saying that he has plenty of oil — he has the qualities needed to get rich and become a major player in the rap game!

Saying his cup is “all oil” is him drinking codeine syrup. In Texas, codeine is called “mud” or “oil” so although Qatar is the world’s richest nation, he is also saying his cup contains a healthy amount of codeine.

Could also relate to his first line about God with the verse Psalm 23:5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

E-40 puts his own spin on G’s line:

He does drugs to escape from the stresses and drama of everyday life. As YG said above, his family’s lives depend on him.

On top of that, now that he’s having some success, he thought everyone would be praising and encouraging him but he’s surprised by the amount of hate and jealousy that he’s receiving.

Dude can’t catch a break!

Post Hook line 4:

“With my hands I’m doing stands”?….

"I got more tail than that PetCo," (Childish Gambino – IV. sweatpants) | accepted

He gets more tail (ASS) than PetCo does!

"I'm angrier than all eight other reindeer put together wi..." (Eminem – Rhyme or Reason) | rejected

I thought EM was alluding to Hate Bein' Sober rather than I Don’t Like.

Not only does he hate being sober, but EM hates everything!

Thumb this suggestion up if you think Meek says “our plane”.
Thumb this suggestion down if you think Meek says “all plain”.
