"A ?madbacks? is what the projects made me/
Rebel to the ?grain? theres's no way to barracade me/"


what's a madback, if that's what he says (I thought it was madman for the longest time). And is rebel to the grain like saying going against the grain? that's what I figure

You could think of 'grain' two ways. Grain is a very small particle. So it's like he's saying, down to the last inch of him he's a rebel. The word grain also has the definition of being one's basic nature.

I Think Both Of You Are Correct About What He Means By "grain"

I Think It's Mad Vexed Too.

Saying "I'm mad vexed is what the projects made me" doesn't make sense sentence wise compared to "A man vexed, is what the projects made me." But that's just nit picking. He is saying he's vexed though.

he says "I'm fleeing the crime scene on the Major Deegan"

the Major Deegan is an expressway in New York City....so he's just sayin he's in his car speeding along the highway tryin to evade the police chasing after him..
