Joey raps, “It’s that youngest under 30 on the Forbes list / I be cashing out, I be cashing out / I moved my momma from the hood to a fortress,” Joey treats listeners to a more lighthearted, braggadocio style than they are used to hearing from him. But by following this with “you n****s worried ‘bout the crown, worried ‘bout the crown / F**k it. You can tell them clowns they can keep it.”
Together the two not only trade bars that are so tightly woven they rival an MMA submission hold, both XXXTENTACION and Joey force the beat to tap out during the record’s two-minute time span. X even pump fakes on the track as he goes over his trials and tribulations outside of music.
