All you have to do is… The introduction gives the audience hints about what the song is about. The word “hit” is a slang term used for feeling the effects of weed which is otherwise known as “getting high”.• Chorus: “Be lifted up high be lifted shut the fuck up be lifted tell’em to fuck up be lifted tell’em be Lifted so high be lifted so high be lifted” The chorus refers to the effects of weed and how people would describe “being high” etc “Be lifted” and “up high”. The chorus contains swear words such as “shut the fuck up” which is commonly used in hip-hop music videos.
  6. 6. • Verse 1: “White smoke flowing as an ocean, after I quit dipping this seem my coach soaking, This refers to the smoke that comes from the marijuana. Artists normally rate the marijuana by the thickness of the smoke and therefore they have referred to theirs as “an ocean” because it is wavelike.• The sea is open and potion has got me mixing important strings like dogs training for best in show, playing for best in chosen maybe you’ll get to know them, The altered minds blow and smoking its threads is hopeless, How can I know this a faggot meeting a beating when I’m beating they keeping inna this peace and I’m planning this spoken, cannibals token, has, has handled my token cant, animals cannabis something has vandled her vocan feel the chamber of smoking aiming straight to your throat… Hopeless”This verse refers to having no control over the effects of cannabis for example “smoking its threads hopeless…feel the chamber of smoking aiming straight to your throat… hopeless”
  7. 7. Chorus: “Be lifted, ‘Up high’ be lifted ‘shut the fuck up’ …”
  8. 8. • Verse 2: “Yeah… Pull it out, tear it up like an animal, spitting bars eating rappers like a cannibal, blowing O’s in the back like a chimney, got a pound of that kush, staying with me,• ‘Pull it out, tear it up, like an animal’’ refers to having sex as pull it out refers to preparing for sex, tear it up refers to having intercourse and like an animal refers to having intercourse roughly. ‘Spitting bars, eating rappers like a cannibal’ refers to them being better than other rappers. Spitting bars refers to saying lyrics, eating rappers means being better than their competitors and they use a simile “like a cannibal” to emphasise how confident they are against their competitors. ‘Blowing O’s like a chimney’ refers to them smoking weed and blowing out the smoke in an ‘O’ shape which is genuinely done in music videos. Like a chimney is another simile used.• fill it up lungs never stay empty, and I stay with them birds like a 10 piece• This refers to smoke always being in their lungs meaning that they are constantly high. ‘I stay up with them birds’ refers to birds flying and therefore the artist ‘being high’, ‘like a 10 piece’ refers to having a 10 piece chicken meal.• keep a heater when them haters getting windy pull it in hard blow it gently, they say they know me, I be chilling with the homies smoking mari, with the breezies so I know she bring the rollies in, don’t be mistaken there’s a lot that we been taken , got ma fam out in the east so I know that I’m gone make it …• Mari is a slanfg term used for marijuana which comes from the song “Mari by Vybz Kartel”, ‘I know she bring the rollies in’ refers to having a girl to ‘roll’ or make the ‘blunt’ (like a cigarette but containing weed) which is highly appreciated and respected in the hip-hop world. ‘Got my fam out in the east…” refers to taking the family to the middle east which means that the trip would be highly expensive which reflects on how successful the artist is.
  9. 9. • Hol up yeah I’m gone take it to the sky wear ma feet up on the dash imma let the ‘erb dry• ‘wear my feet up on the dash imma let the ‘erb dry’ refers to resting the artists feet on the dashboard of his car whilst drying his weed before smoking it.• I’m the last to be surprised, that’s your girlfriend when you hear me I’m gone see that girl tonight man uh huh oh• This refers to the artist threatening someone else by having sex with his girlfriend which is emphasised by ‘uh huh oh’.• yoo we got like 3 hours coming on the way starting from up though get the boy liners you know DK, AM “ This refers to them having 3 hours to get high starting with them originally being high, lastly they give themselves a shoutout which is commonly used in hip-hop; to remind the audience who is on the track.
