Black Beatles - Rae Sremmurd ft. Gucci Mane




The Experience: Everybody on this island seems so happy... but I come back to the water no matter how hard I try... Inside of everyone there's a deep desire for more...



Music video: A performance video with party shots mixed in, including fleeting shots of topless women

The Meaning of Black Beatles: The song showcases hip hop's ideal of manliness: have so much money - why you bring the money machine to the club for - that you can have all the alcohol and drugs - smoke in the air, binge drinkin' - and all the sex - took a b-tch to the club and let her party on the table - you want. I'm a f-cking black Beatle - that's the hip hop ideal. But that leaves nothing behind when you're gone - no family, no friends, no difference. That hurts and doesn't help. That's not who a man is. And that's the reason that hip hop rings false and hollow. Money gets spent, sex gets old, and drugs kill you - what are you left with?

Ask yourself: What do you aspire to?

Soundtrack: SremmLife 2 (2015)

LYRICS:

[Swae Lee and Gucci Mane]
Black Beatles in the city be back immediately to confiscate the moneys
Rae Sremm, Guwop, Mike Will!
Sent flowers but you said you didn't receive them.
But you said you didn't need them.

[Swae Lee]
That girl is a real crowd pleaser
Small world, all her friends know of me
Young bull livin' like an old geezer
Quick release the cash, watch it fall slowly
Frat girls still tryna get even
Haters mad for whatever reason
Smoke in the air, binge drinkin'
They lose it when the DJ drops the needle

Gettin' so cold I'm not blinkin'
What in the world was I thinkin'?
New day, new money to be made
There is nothing to explain
I'm a f-cking black Beatle, cream seats in the Regal
Rocking John Lennon lenses like to see 'em spread eagle
Took a b-tch to the club and let her party on the table
Screaming, "Everybody's famous."
Like clockwork, I blow it all
And get some more
Get you somebody that can do both
Black Beatles got the babes belly rolling
She think she love me
I think she trollin'

That girl is a real crowd pleaser
Small world, all her friends know of me
Young bull livin' like an old geezer
Quick release the cash, watch it fall slowly
Frat girls still tryna get even
Haters mad for whatever reason
Smoke in the air, binge drinkin'
They lose it when the DJ drops the needle

[Gucci Mane]
Came in with two girls, look like strippers in their real clothes
A broke h-- can only point me to a rich h--
A yellow b-tch with green hair, a real weirdo
Black man, yellow Lamb', real life goals
They seen that Guwop and them just came in through the side door
There's so much money on the floor we buying school clothes
Why you bring the money machine to the club for?
Pint of lean, pound of weed, and a kilo
I eurostep past a hater like I'm Rondo
I upgrade your baby mama to a condo
My Chapos servin' yayo to the gringos
Black Beatle, club close when I say so

[Swae Lee]
That girl is a real crowd pleaser
Small world, all her friends know of me
Young bull livin' like an old geezer
Quick release the cash, watch it fall slowly
Frat girls still tryna get even
Haters mad for whatever reason
Smoke in the air, binge drinkin'
They lose it when the DJ drops the needle

[Slim Jxmmi]
She's a good teaser, and we blowin' reefer
Your body like a work of art, baby
Don't f-ck with me, I'll break your heart, baby
DnG on me, I got a lot of flavor
15 hundred on my feet, I'm tryna kill these haters
I got haters when I was broke, I'm rich, I still got haters
I had h--s when I was broke, I'm rich, I'm still a player
I wear leather Gucci jackets like its still the 80's
I've been blowin' OG Kush, I feel a lil' sedated
I can't worry about a broke n-gga or a hater
Black Beatle, b-tch, me and Paul McCartney related

[Swae Lee]
That girl is a real crowd pleaser
Small world, all her friends know of me
Young bull livin' like an old geezer
Quick release the cash, watch it fall slowly
Frat girls still tryna get even
Haters mad for whatever reason
Smoke in the air, binge drinkin'
They lose it when the DJ drops the needle
