potato salad lyrics explained A$AP Rocky tyler the creator

This week, A$AP Rocky and Tyler, the Creator dropped the freestyle track “Potato Salad” for Rocky’s AWGE DVD Vol. 3 and hinted at their forthcoming WANGSAP project. Now, the very clever people at Genius have broken down a selection of the track’s lyrics.

The lyrics touch upon wealth, fashion, and the current state of hip-hop. Both rappers reference a few of their brands of choice, with Tyler bragging about his income and rapping, “Double C my luggage and fill them with COMME blouses.”

Rocky gives a shoutout to Lil B, referencing his single “Vans” with the rhyme, “Got my Vans on but they look like sneakers / Flipped a couple packs, BasedGod in the speakers.” He later throws a dig at mumble rappers with the lines, “Then I think about the state of rap and all the freshmens in the classes / All the super seniors mumblin’ and ramblin’.” This is a pointed reference to XXL‘s Freshman class, which was heavily criticized for featuring mumble rappers.

Check out the full breakdown above and, as a refresher, revisit “Potato Salad” below.
