ink-blots refer to the “Rorschach ink-blot test”. Test subjects are shown ink-blots (shown below) that do not necessarily represent anything, and can be interpreted in many ways. the test subject’s interpretation is recorded and often used to diagnose certain mental disorders

GZA studies the lessons, he is a religious man. He’s also heavily armed.

math of an elder refers to supreme mathamatics

steel of a welder refers to his guns (which are usually made of low alloy steel)

welding is the process of joining steel members by applying heat or electric current, so welders use lots of steel (just like carpenters use lots of wood)

his 45 caliber pistol is fully loaded.

bullets spin while exiting a gun. the radial motion superimposed with the linear motion makes a spiral (like a football). if you could watch a bullet come at you in slow-mo, youd see it right before you got hit

Chess moves. the letters are the horizontal position and the numbers are the vertical.

he does not specify which piece is making this move though

Wu tang clan (and this album in particular) has lots of references to the game of chess

GZA might mean that his lyrics shine so brightly that they should not be found in a photo lab (dark room).

Film is light sensitive. therefore the photo developing process is ruined when unwanted light shines on it.

Break beats, which are generally made from looping samples from old music and adding other effects, make GZA “get crazy” which is to say he likes to rap over them, and he does it well.

if you getting chased with no shoes on;

they came for you when you werent ready…but you gotta run anyways

"Rap Parmesan" (Raekwon – Knuckleheadz) | pending

whoever suggested this is foolish, to say the least

"Rap Parmesan" (Raekwon – Knuckleheadz) | rejected

This album (Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…, 1995) is much older than arrested development (the show that Gene Parmesan is from), 2003-2013.

He could not possibly be referring to Gene Parmesan.

"Rap Parmesan" (Raekwon – Knuckleheadz) | rejected

He is most certainly not comparing himself to gene parmesan. this album was released 8 years before arrested development even aired.

troll.

"Unheard about, guns go off, and now I murder route" (Raekwon – Knuckleheadz) | pending

Guns go off and then hes laying low. The murder route is to his hide out

"Before I blast the mic, RZA scratch off the serial" (GZA – Shadowboxin') | pending

Also, there is a record scratching sound while he is saying scratch.

"Be careful, I got four ninjas, inside your parameter" (GZA – Advance Pawns) | pending

the 4 ninjas arent with him, they are surrounding whoever whos telling to be careful.

inside your parameter means inside your boundaries (on your turf)

"It's the A to the S - E" (Masta Ace – Terror) | pending

that doesnt really make sense given the context. i think hes just spelling his name wrong on purpose

"I toke the chocolate, potent phillies never roach spray" (Nas – The World is Yours (Original Remix)) | pending

this line doesnt contain anything about smoking papers (for or against)
A roach is a common term for the little bit of the blunt left over when it gets so small that it burns your fingers.
the term “roach spray” refers to the act of smoking all of your saved up roaches, usually out of desperation as they will smoke harshly, taste and smell bad
nas says he never roach sprays, which is to say, he has enough weed (or access to enough weed) that he doesnt have to save his roaches because he can just roll another philly!
