On the song Lil TJay rapped, “Type of guy try to take sum’ from me? Boy, you high / And I ain’t sayin’ he the suspect, but lil homie out an eye / All streets rules apply, I got hit, ain’t wonder why / All quiet, all I know is when they see me it’s goodbye.” He also said on the track, “I know many men, out there wanna get me, tell ’em ‘bend again’ / Never on no scary shit, not afraid like Eminem / Singin’ n-gga, but you sleep on me that be your flaw / Lettin’ me live that was stupid, must think one plus two is four.”
Before releasing the remix Lil Tjay wrote, “This what ya wanted lmaoo[.] Guess it’s time to shake sh## up[.] I woke up feeling like @50cent , yk what that means[.] after this ima just go mainstream on ya. Fu%k around get my teeth done and sh##[.] go get that movie money what ya think #power?”
