With encouraging chords on the strings, he uses basketball ("breaking rims and backboards/just so a nigga can rap more") and rap (“I wanna be like 3pacs/really wanna be like me though”) metaphors to explain how he's coming this year. In an email he likened this song to his roar to the rest of the world: "'Two Three' is kind of my version of a Chicago declaration, taking that title as someone who not only represents the city but wants to be the best coming out of the city.
