Normally, when rappers perform at clubs, they are packed to the rafters. Meaning that people who pay at the door are plenty. And so there should be plenty profit. However, there is some sort of corruption going on seeing as how this dude performed in a packed club, but didn’t get the full amount of pay. Eh muna ng'tlakuseche means, “Let me search you.” Now Mo is obviously searching this guy for he money. Perhaps he was the one who pocketed the money.

A play on the idiom:

Put your money where your mouth is.

The above-mentioned idiom basically means:

And if you can do it better than me, then you do it.

There could be two meanings to this:

  1. To the promoters/companies. Seeing as how it is always portrayed that rappers are the ones who need these guys and not the other way around, Reason is pretty much saying that since these guys don’t think they can do it, then they should do it. Putting their where their mouth is. Now, Reason then plays on the whole “Money talks, bullshit walks” which is he preciously mentioned. Now seeing as how this song is calling these guys to Bump The Cheese Up, clearly they talk a good game but cannot live up to their own standard. The money doesn’t speak for them. Hence, they become defunct. In other words, they don’t have any money to put in their mouth. “Don’t pump your cheeks up” means don’t falsify yourself. If you know you can’t Bump The Cheese Up, then don’t even consider talking about it.

  2. This could be a casual braggadocio line to the competition. Of which the above explanation would still be the same, except directed to other rappers of course.

Roman’s Pizza is a well-known pizza joint in South Africa that offers both thick base and thin base pizza.

Thin base, in this case, would mean little money. Which is not what the goal is here. If you’re talking to Reason, you need to bring the thick base dough. Meaning you need to bring stacks to the table. Thin base never paid the bills.

The flat line = that sound that you hear when someone puts the phone down.

Basically, if you don’t give a good offer for Reason’s services, then don’t even bother. Money talks, bullshit walks.

Maybe AKA should shed some light on the first part…

Even if he got booed whilst trying to make it, he simply went back to the drawing board. This resulted in him creating something better and learning from his mistakes. The tape he refers to here, is his mixtape 24/7/366. It is considered to be one of the best mixtapes released by a South African rapper, and pretty much started off his career. One of the songs which jumped started it was I Want It All.

The result of all of this? Nationwide plays, including video launches on MTV Base.

To pay dues means to work hard, whether you like it or not, until you achieve the dream. However, in as much as you need to pay dues, you also need to take risks. These could change your life for better or worse, but you take them so that you can get what you want e.g. Making a commitment to rapping. This dedicating your whole life to rapping and starting from the bottom. And so long as you have faith in it, then you’ll become a success.

AKA actually did have a myspace. See here.

You start with the dream, and then you begin the hustle. Reaching out to people, putting in work, all in the hopes of your dream being realized one day.

Note: AKA emphasizes this point nicely with the Michael Jackson punch. MJ had a forehead lift, cheekbone surgery and had altered his lips. By 1990, he had undergone 10 procedures to his face. See here.

This is how most rap careers start out. As Biggie best said it:

It was all a dream…

You’re about to blow up, just like you planned. And you’re raking in the money.

Bandits, back when the wild, wild west existed , were the olden day version of robbers. They dealt in organized crime and lived lives of lawlessness. Now, even the modern bandits live lawlessly and get a lot of money from doing what they do.

FINALLY!

If you noticed, the rappers that Kendrick did call out have not cause a nuclear reaction about this. And the rappers who were NOT mentioned, have been responding nonstop. This isn’t about the rappers Kendrick did call out, it’s about those he DIDN’T call out.

“Success and Gossip bring….”

In the previous line, he says “therefore I fuck what you think.” Considering that the girl his rolling with has his dick on her mind.
