WHATS POPPIN - Jack Harlow ft. DaBaby, Tory Lanez, Lil Wayne

The Experience: Hometown hero, feeling myself, can't murder my ego... the very people who idolize me leave me lonely...
The Vibe: Confidence.
The Topic: Success. Loneliness.
The Tension: Hometown hero (I made it and they know it) VS. We used to share a connection now it just feels like it's wearing and stretching (But my success leaves me lonely).



Music video: The music video adds a sense of cynical weariness to the otherwise confident vibe of the track. Jack is the center of attention at a diner... until he decides it's time and heads out alone - he doesn't need them. And they weren't all that attached to him either - they just keep talking and eating.

The Meaning of WHATS POPPIN: Once you filter out the sex, and gratefully move on from the detox, WHATS POPPIN shares the experiences - good and bad - of success. You lose friends to jealousy: I feel resentment from every direction even some homies be wearing expressions I be discouraged from sharing my blessings. Old relationships stretch and some snap as you change: we used to share a connection now it just feels like it's wearing and stretching. People feel free to comment on you life when they don't even have theirs in order: I'm getting real sick of taking advice from people that never could stare at reflections. Finally, you need to grow to survive change: somewhere in there is a lesson y'all ain't evolvin' it's very depressing.

Ask yourself: Does success bring you friends?

Album: Sweet Action (2020)

LYRICS:

What's poppin'? (Pooh, you a fool for this one)
Brand new whip just hopped in (Just hopped in)
I got options (Oh Lord, Jetson made another one)
I could pass that b-tch like Stockton (It ain't nothin')
Just joshin'
I'ma spend this holiday locked in (Ooh)
My body got rid of them toxins (Mmh, mmh)
SportsCenter, top ten

I could put the ball in the end zone, put a bad b-tch in the friendzone, ooh
This sh-t sound like an intro, Jetson, give me that tempo, ooh
Told Pooh he a fool with this sh-t (He a fool)
Told her don't let her friends know (Don't)
In the 'Ville and I move like a don (Don)
Eating fettuccine at Vincenzo's
Me and my 'migos got that free smoke
On the West Coast, yeah, I'm talking 'bout pre-rolls (Pre-roll)
Dark haired b-tch and she look like Shego (She do)
Hometown hero, feeling myself, can't murder my ego (Can't do it)
She heard of my deep stroke
She said, "Babe, does it hurt when I deep throat?" (It does)
Certified freak ho
Hang around us and she learnin' my lingo
Back then, wasn't worried 'bout me though
In the gym tryna work on my free throw
Godd-mn
Spending money at the club like Sam's (Cha-ching)
Yes, ma'am
She a lil' freak on cam
But she don't put this on the 'Gram (Nah)
Lil' boys tryna diss on the 'Gram (Ayy)
I can't switch on the fam (B-tch)
Sh-t's hot, hit the switch on the fan (Hit that sh-t)
This where my head is (Listen)
I feel resentment from every direction
Even some homies be wearing expressions
I be discouraged from sharing my blessings (D-mn)
We used to share a connection
Now it just feels like it's wearing and stretching
I'm getting real sick of taking advice
From people that never could stare at reflections (Ooh)
Somewhere in there is a lesson
Y'all ain't evolvin', it's very depressing
I'm at the club with the basketball team
Me and the Cardinals are sharing a section (Facts)
Gotta cherish the present
I'm drinking water and wearing protection
Got a career and I'm very invested
Some people call it a scary obsession (Ooh, period, but)
I like to call it a passion, I can't be sitting relaxin' (Nah, I can't)
PG, we getting some traction, I'm at the venue, it's packed in (Packed out)
I'm digging her accent
I got a B.B. Simon belt on me and she tryna get it unfastened
That's my type of distraction, that's my type and she Latin (That's facts, ooh)
Got my own flow and I'm 'bout to get a patent
Brand new sheets for the bed, they satin (Soft, real soft)
Y'all wasn't tuned in back then (Nah)
My swag, they keep jackin' (Keep on jackin')
I ain't doin' no verse, quit askin' (Quit askin')

What's poppin'? (Pooh, you a fool for this one)
Brand new whip just hopped in (Just hopped in)
I got options
I could pass that b-tch like Stockton (It ain't nothin')
Just joshin'
I'ma spend this holiday locked in (Ooh)
My body got rid of them toxins (Mmh, mmh)
SportsCenter, top ten
