    I think you're lookin to deep into the line, he's just basically saying no matter how many cats you bring to em, he can take em out - hell, maybe he thought there were 7 cats out at the time that people considered as nice, and he was sendin subliminals

    It's a dope line, but it doesn't mean anything... people just think it's sick as all fuck because he added 7 together three times and came to the conclusion that it equals 21.

    Anytime you add numbers together in your rhymes people think you're a genius - like that shit in One Mic that really doesn't mean anything, but is basically a math problem in rhyme form. Since most mother fuckers can't add 2 and 2, they think 7 x 3 = 21 is a metaphor for divine wisdom.

    lol, ^^^anybody ever heard that Supernatural freestyle on the wake up show where that was one of the words they threw at him. "i ain't even gonna front I ain't never heard'a that word" - "i'm gonna go home get a dictionary and find the definition/yeah, brother, and combine on it/and when I come back, yeah... I'll have a rhyme on it"

    no in on of his earlier rhymes he added up how many emcees he could kill at the same time....then in one of his later songs he referenced back to it by saying they could be one of those 7 emcees that he ate...it just means he is better than everyone...no matter how much you throw at him

    Think about this: 7 is known as the GOD number and the letter "g" is also the 7th letter of the alphabet which is the first letter to spell out the word "God." So that be the case, YOU do the math.

    Yeah, I learned that from Wu-Tang too and it crossed my mind but even if you translate the line as...

    - I take [God] MC's and put 'em all in a line, add [God] more brothers who think they can rhyme/it'll take [God] more before I go for mine, now that's [3 Gods] ate up all at the same time -

    ...it still doesn't mean anything.
