    Since Decoded2 may not be comin out anytime soon, I’ll take a crack at this jewel. Mr. West laid a very memorable verse as well.

    I pledge allegiance uhh, to my Grandma –>Hov is a big fan of his granma’s banana pudding, got shout outs on Momma loves me as well

    For that banana puddin our piece of Americana uhh –>his America (as an urban black youth) is not typical America, hence the comparison to banana puddin (which, like the peach cobbler, is distinctly african american cuisine)

    Our apple pie was supplied through Arm n Hammer uhh –>Apple pie is yet another Hov favorite, received shout outs on Guns n roses. He acquired his favorites thru puttin time in the kitchen

    Straight out the kitchen, shh dont wake Nana uhh –>Gettin ready to cook, probably gettin things ready near the stove without makin noise

    Built a republic uhh, that still stands –>The narrator is continuin the rhyme by stayin on the word banana. A banana republic is an unstable country. Also, Banana Republic (the brand) did not endure and was acquired by Gap

    Im trynna lead a (ROC)nation to leave to my little mans uhh –>In essence, the narrator is ensurin stability for his piece of America (urban America) and for his future generations

    Or my daughter so Im boilin this water –>Started the process of cookin

    The scales is lopsided, Im just restorin order –>He is continuin wit cookin. Scales are startin to show up and he is stirrin to ensure uniformity. A reference to how he is transformin his misfortunes into wealth and also a justification for what he is involved in

    Hold up, here comes grandma uhh, wassup YaYa uhh –>Spanglish begins – YaYa = Grandma

    Whats that smell? Oh Im just boilin some aqua –>The narrator evades granny’s inquiries. Spanglish ends??

    No papa, bad Santa –>Pops (R.I.P) was not around at this time and he could not ask him all the things he wanted

    The streets raised me, pardon my bad manners uhh –>The narrator is hurt that he had to cook in the house and tell half truths to granny

    I got my liberty (livery) uhh, choppin grams up –>Cookin is done and the next thing to do is chop it, bag it and ship it to d-boys or scramblers. In other words, ready for delivery. Liberty sounds like livery in spanish.

    Street justice, I pray God understand us uhh –>As explained on many many songs, he did not cook for fun but only because he had to

    I pledge allegiance uhh, to all the scramblers uhh –>The end product is shipped and is now wit the scramblers who will distribute

    THIS IS THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER –>The narrator’s allegiance is to makin it by any means necessary. This is his version of the national anthem. The wordplay around allegiance and America sums up with the Star Spangled Banner reference

    That’s 90% decoded, I think. The rest is best left encoded. Ha.
