“But I’m contemplating yelling ‘bombs away’ on the game / Like I’m outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting,” he raps.
He previously compared himself to the terrorist in a 2018 freestyle battle rap.
He also compares himself to Saddam Hussein and Ayatollah Khomeini in the song, as well as 9/11: “And you backpedal that as a cowardly act / Like a Saudi attack when the towers collapse.”
There is also a reference to JonBenet Ramsay: “Look at how I’m behaving me, they want me gone away / They wanna JonBenet me, I’m unaccommodating.”
