    Default Deciphering GZA's line on 4th Chambers

    What did GZA mean in this verse. I could never really understand it.

    "The banks a G, all CREAM downs a bet
    Money feed good, opposites off the set"

    The first line is a refrence to the Cee-Loo game, right? Bank is the person who give instruction to other players of how big the ante will be. So here it's $1000 (a G).

    But what does the second line mean? Is he saying about his clique (set) or does "set" mean something different here?

    "I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth" (Rev. 3:15-16)

    i assume it means that Ghostface is in a craps game. $500 on the Pass and $500 on Don't Pass. Ghost won. Whoever bet the opposite lost all their money and have to get out of the game and make way for new players with money.

    Getting paid feels good as opposed to not? althught I had alternative interpretation when set meaning the turntables. And opposite sets means the two turn tables. Once you get paid, the beat starts.

    All CREAM (money) down is a bet. Dice game. Possibly Cee-Lo. In Cee-Lo, u can “stop” the bank.
