‘Cause it’s all about the Rock
If you smell what I’m cooking

Splurgeboys's official lyric explanation

And then, obviously, so it’s “shouts out to my people" that I may know, or may not know, that sell drugs and then because like wrestlers, they’re pushing. Because it’s all about ‘the rock’ - which is the drug. If you smell what I’m cooking, you cook the rock.
