Rodarius Green is a rapper from St. Petersburg, Florida, who records under the name of Rod Wave. He laid down this song for his fourth mixtape PTSD.
During the song, Rod Wave talks about his struggles during his come-up. As he wears his heart on his sleeve, all the pain and heartbreak the rapper has gone through has led to aggressive behavior. However, being an open wound can ferment a lack of respect:

Wave has decided that the best way to deal with his issues is to become cold-hearted.
Think it's best I put my heart on ice, heart on ice 'cause I can't breathe I'ma put my heart on ice, heart on ice, it's gettin' the best of me
