“This ain’t the squash beef state,” Royce says, keeping the theShady XVtrack rolling with a“Saved By The Bell”reference. “You thinkin’ makeup, we thinkin’ Lark Voorhies’ face.”
Big Sean follows Royce up with raps about how dangerous Detroit can be. “Welcome to Detroit, where if you get that promotion, don’t worry,” Big Sean rhymes. “Them bullets will still be at yo ass firin’.”
Danny Brown establishes himself next, offering up some of his credentials. “Honestly, no honor roll,” he raps. “But honored up in them streets.”
Beyond the controversial lines, Em explains why he feels he’s gotten the success that he has attained. “I still never A-B-C the sh—t,” he raps. “Mainstream appeal, but the skill is what made me/ Ever since before they called Jay Dee Dilla.”
While Trick Trick doesn’t rap on the song, he appears at the end of the cut saying that he’s taking the instrumental to the hood to get a remix crackin’. So, it sounds like there’s a lot more on the way for Shady fans as they await the November 24 release ofSHADY XV.
