Drip Too Hard - Lil Baby & Gunna




The Experience: I have everything I ever wanted... 

Music video: The video cuts back and forth between Lil Baby and Gunna arriving at a ranch retreat well stocked with female bodies, and shots of those same women preparing to receive the two rappers' attentions. The emphasis is on the quantity of objects at their beck and call, not on the quality of any relationship.

The Meaning of Drip Too Hard: Lil Baby and Gunna raise an anthem to swag - drip too hard. But their particular brand of success stays very close to the claim of sexual prowess at the origin of the phrase. Swag is summed up by - and reduced to - being a sex king.

Ask yourself: Why is it so easy for some people to reduce others to products they see, taste, use, and throw away? How do you stop them from using you?

LYRICS:

Run that back, Turbo

[Lil Baby]
You can get the biggest Chanel bag in the store if you want it
I gave 'em the drip, they sucked it up, I got 'em moanin'
I bought a new Patek, I had the watch, so I two-toned 'em
Takin' these drugs, I'm gon' be up until the morning
That ain't your car, you just a leaser, you don't own it
If I'm in the club, I got that fire when I'm performin'
The backend just came in, in all hundreds
Fives galore, cute sh-t, they all on us
I'm from Atlanta where young n-gg-s run sh-t
I know they hatin' on me, but I don't read comments
Whenever I tell her to come, she comin'
Whenever it's smoke, we ain't runnin'

[Lil Baby & Gunna:]
Drip too hard, don't stand too close
You gon' f-ck around and drown off this wave
Doing all these shows, I've been on the road
Don't care where I go, long as I get paid
Bad lil' vibe, she been on my mind
Soon as I get back, she gettin' slayed
Do this all the time, this ain't no surprise
Every other night, another movie gettin' made
Drip too hard, don't stand too close
You gon' f-ck around and drown off this wave
Doing all these shows, I've been on the road
Don't care where I go, long as I get paid
Bad lil' vibe, she been on my mind
Soon as I get back, she gettin' slayed
Do this all the time, this ain't no surprise (yeah)
Every other night, another movie gettin' made

[Gunna]
Every other night, another dollar gettin' made
Every other night started with a good day
I feel like a child, I got boogers in the face
Diamonds dancin' in the dark like this sh-t is a parade
I don't want your chain, I'm gon' want another slave
I had to draw the line, too many b-tches gettin' saved
TSA harass me, so I took a private plane
These p-ssy n-gg-s lackin', why I'm workin' on my aim
Drip too hard, charge it to the card
Designer to the ground, I can barely spell the names
Drip too hard, caution on the floor
You gon' f-ck around and drown tryna ride a n-gg- wave

[Lil Baby]
Drip too hard, don't stand too close
You gon' f-ck around and drown off this wave
Doing all these shows, I've been on the road
Don't care where I go, long as I get paid
Bad lil' vibe, she been on my mind
Soon as I get back, she gettin' slayed
Do this all the time, this ain't no surprise
Every other night, another movie gettin' made
Drip too hard, don't stand too close
You gon' f-ck around and drown off this wave
Doing all these shows, I've been on the road
Don't care where I go, long as I get paid
Bad lil' vibe, she been on my mind
Soon as I get back, she gettin' slayed
Do this all the time, this ain't no surprise
Every other night, another movie gettin' made
