To "turn up" is to get drunk and/or high, party, and forget about life for awhile. To "turn down" would be to get serious, go to work, and deal with reality.

Turn Down For What (the song) is a social commentary making the point that many people -- especially in "the hood" -- feel that even if they do "turn down" and do everything society expects of them, the deck is still so stacked against them that their lives still will not improve.

So why bother to turn down, if there's nothing to turn down for?
We shouldn't waste our lives turning up constantly. Maybe we should turn down.

Turn down for what? What's the point? I might as well just make myself feel good and enjoy living for the moment.
