I’m very stupid.

This verse has a lot of references to Bay Area specific things.
A typical start for Mr.Gigz…
He’s in the building and feeling himself. He’s also coming for you.
Label’s probably haven’t given Roach’s music a chance, or even noticed it at all!
Being still unsigned Roach says that they aren’t seeing him, as in he isn’t getting his music any airtime on the radio which is really unfair sometimes
Kel is one of Roach’s producers and engineers.
Rappers without skills would steal styles and flows from more skill rappers just to stay hot.
Tyler claiming that he didn’t try on this particular verse, but a lot of the fanboy’s that listen to his music will still go ape-shit and love it, even if it’s bad.
Besides the fact they didn’t care before, they also couldn’t afford it now that they can “cop rare gear” (buy that expensive rare Louis V that Doom likes a lot)
Fun Fact: In this hooks Tyga actually says “bad bitch of the year, you should win a* award” and understanding that T-raw isn’t the smartest rapper out there, no one bothered to tell him about his grammar!
Sprung doesn’t only mean boner… especially how it’s used now a days. When you’re sprung it usually means you’re falling in love with someone & you are obsessing over them(but in a good way, not a creepy one hah ^)
My guess is that there is actually more to this verse but it’s cut off for the story and cause Tyler likes doing this to us, and there will be a music video eventually and it will have the whole verse as long as in concerts earl has got to rap the rest!
Right around here he start’s making his voice crack for depth to the mood, adds a lot of tension and shit. this a “tactic” that’s became popular from people like Kendrick Lamar who does it to make his songs more serious. Works really well Tyler too, I might add!
Most likely a double entendre saying “getting head” like literally, then also having a parent criticize the Berrics for their recklessness and being probably not the best-influences like OF.(getting head= getting yelled at)
Weird that the description spelled Louis’s Burgers right but the lyrics got it wrong. Yeah can someone fix that?
I always thought in the 2nd bar Kendrick said “Look inside your soul and you can find doubt and never hit shit” as it corresponds still to the first bar saying how you shouldn’t be so negative on things(ie. don’t kill my vibe!) because that won’t get you anywhere(a LOT similar to K-dot’s “Cut you Off” idea) Believe it or not, that adds a lot more depth than the original bar.
Maybe this was intentional? maybe he already knew this? I don’t know and we probably won’t find out, just a cool little something I found ^.^
One thing I heard while listening, it sounds like Instead of “like a right to vote” it also sounds like Kendrick is saying “like a Raichu volt” which is a Pokemon(which is also a tv show which fits the theme of cartoons) also the “volt” part corresponds to the lightning bolt from the previous bar.
Also since this came out pretty close to Frankie’s Channel Orange it could also be a reference to the hidden track with tyler on it, called “Golden Girl”
