Lyrics

Ayy, this shit like videos, you hear me?
Everything I’m sayin’ in this motherfucker’s all props (this shit is not real, skrrt)
Just in case the police listenin’, know I’m sayin’? (High Speed Music)
Smurk, slide, slide, slide (man, what?)

Don’t respond to shit with Von (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I’m like, “Fuck it, you trippin’, go get your gun” (let’s get it, yeah, gun)
They droppin’ locations, I’m gettin’ it done (woo, woo, woo, gang)
Fuck tweetin’, we slidin’, the feds’ll come (yeah, yeah, yeah, man, what?)
He fuckin’ his bitches, them niggas his sons (bitches, niggas, let’s get it)
I’m hangin’ with killers, we breakin’ a bond (yeah, yeah, yeah, bond)
They really don’t mean it, he say it in songs (yeah, mean it, say it in songs)
They really don’t mean it, he play it in songs (pussy, bitch, yeah)

We be slidin’ through they blocks and they don’t know we have
Buddy ass got shot and we ain’t claim it but I can show his ass (grrah)
Niggas actin’ like they really like that since my brodie died (Von)
Just got out the feds, you bring up murders with your police ass
I told Von to leave that bitch alone, she post on OnlyFans (she a eater)
Catch ’em at apartments they be in ’cause that’s our only chance (grrah)
They don’t be outside like you think, they ass be on the ‘Gram (gang)
Old opps fuckin’ with my new opps (grrah), oh, man (grrah)
That shit merched, we been through there, that shit like ghost land (skrrt, skrrt)
My brother D-Thang just got killed and I been slow since (gang, gang)
But we got back on they ass, I bet they know this (grrah)
And on bro, I’m speakin’ facts, this ain’t no diss (this ain’t no diss)
Keep the police out my business, we don’t post shit (we don’t post shit)
Trigger happy, I be with Zoo ‘nem and we on 46 (wop, wop)
They like, “Durk, his ass a singer, he won’t smoke shit” (yeah, yeah)
You can believe whatever you want, I got your folks hit (ah, ha)

Don’t respond to shit with Von (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I’m like, “Fuck it, you trippin’, go get your gun” (let’s get it, yeah, gun)

They really don’t mean it, he play it in songs (pussy, bitch, yeah)

You talkin’ ’bout me in “Pissed Me Off,” and I’m like, “Yes” (yes)
If you feel some type of way, you better slide and get revenge (grrah)
He said, “Therapy ain’t helpin’,” he been killin’ for a cleanse (slide)
She said she ain’t really got shit but she so thirsty for a Benz (skrrt, skrrt)
I just made her suck my dick and I just nutted on her chin (bitch)
I been feelin’ like Rico, I just fucked her in my Timbs (yeah, yeah, yeah)
For school, he said no pen, he rather carry him a Gen (five)
A ten, FN, Perc’ 10, I’m sayin’, he spinnin’ (ten, yeah, yeah, yeah)
You need a pill to slide, he off all them milligrams, he been a fan (bitch)
I seen niggas really killin’ shit, post shit on Instagram (pussy)
You doin’ that, you might as well go to court and say you killed the man (killed the man)
I don’t claim niggas who be with opps, I try to wheel ’em in (grrah)
The trenches like a sport, you grab the ball and turn a killer, man (pussy)
Switches on me, all face shots, we changin’ dental plans (grrah)
All fast cars, make it skrrt, we don’t do rental vans (skrrt)
I can have your homie set you up, his ass a middle man (ah, ha)

Don’t respond to shit with Von (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I’m like, “Fuck it, you trippin’, go get your gun” (let’s get it, yeah, gun)
They droppin’ locations, I’m gettin’ it done (woo, woo, woo, gang)
Fuck tweetin’, we slidin’, the feds’ll come (yeah, yeah, yeah, man, what?)

They really don’t mean it, he say it in songs (yeah, mean it, say it in songs)
They really don’t mean it, he play it in songs (pussy, bitch, yeah)

Full Lyrics

In the vast tapestry of contemporary rap, Lil Durk’s ‘AHHH HA’ emerges as a gritty narrative, etching his experiences from the asphalt of Chicago onto the pulsating heartbeat of hip-hop culture. This is not just a song; it’s a raw testament to survival, loyalty, and the psychological toll endemic to the world that Durk navigates. With an undercurrent of grim reality, the song blurs the lines between the artist’s personal tribulations and the collective ethos of street life.

Delve deeper, beyond the atmospheric beats and visceral delivery, and one uncovers layers of conflict, introspection, and the poignant lament for lost comrades. ‘AHHH HA’ serves as a beacon, illuminating the dark corners of human resilience amidst adversity. In analyzing the meaning behind its lyrics, we confront the very essence of Durk’s art: a relentless pursuit of authenticity against the polished façade of popular hip-hop.

An Ode to Fallen Brothers: Von’s Echo in Durk’s Words

Lil Durk’s ‘AHHH HA’ is as much a homage as it is a personal confrontation with grief. The frequent references to Von – King Von, a fellow rapper and close friend who was fatally shot – are a recurrent theme that hovers like a specter over the lyrics. Durk deftly uses his words to honor the memory and adherence to loyalty even after death.

This notion of unyielding brotherhood resonates deeply within the track, lacing Durk’s message with a potent mix of reverence and remorse. There is an inherent understanding that the code of the streets runs parallel to a river of blood and tears, a sentiment that both venerates and mourns the souls caught in its current.

Metaphorical Masks: The Hidden Meaning Behind Props and Facades

From the outset, Durk implies that his lyrics might be laced with props and mirrors – a cautionary note that what listeners encounter might be a theatrical representation ‘Just in case the police listening’. This subtle interplay of the real and the exaggerated serves a dual purpose: self-preservation and the crafting of a larger-than-life street persona.

Yet, even behind the masks, there’s authenticity in his posturing. It’s a representation of the constant vigilance and readiness to respond to threats — real or perceived. Durk’s narrative becomes a metaphor for the artifice required to navigate his reality, underscoring the tension between the authentic self and the avatar created for survival.

The Sirens’ Cry in the Dead of Night: The Urban Specter of Police Presence

With every mention of sliding and retaliation, Lil Durk acknowledges the omnipresent gaze of law enforcement in ‘AHHH HA’. He moves through his city hyper-aware of the ‘feds’ who might come’. There’s a cat-and-mouse game at play, one punctuated by paranoia and the strategic movement of chess pieces on the urban grid.

The recognition of this dynamic captures the tension of being one step ahead while carrying the burden of potential legal consequences. Durk doesn’t just rap about the streets; he narrates the reality of living under a microscope, where even attempted anonymity can’t shield one from the high stakes’ scrutiny.

Trigger Words: Memorable Lines that Embody the Street Ethos

‘Buddy ass got shot and we ain’t claim it but I can show his ass’ – This line hammers home the harsh code of retribution and anonymity in street justice. It encapsulates the unspoken rules of engagement, where accountability is obscured and silhouettes of assailants fade into the night.

Similarly, ‘Trigger happy, I be with Zoo ‘nem and we on 46’ marks not only a geographical territory but also the readiness to defend it. These utterances are not merely lyrics; they are declarations and admissions inked into the identity of Durk and his compatriots.

Music as Therapy: Lil Durk’s Catharsis and Pain

Amidst the heady bravado, ‘AHHH HA’ is also Lil Durk’s way of process his anguish. He raps about seeking therapy and alludes to the various coping mechanisms – ‘He said, ‘Therapy ain’t helpin’,’ he been killin’ for a cleanse’. The song becomes a raw outlet for the demons haunting him and his community.

The pain of loss and the complexity of navigating emotions within the hyper-masculine world of drill rap converge in Durk’s music. It’s a juxtaposition of toughness and vulnerability — a fierce heart beating with the weight of all it’s witnessed yet still defying the despair with every pulse of its rhythm.
