“Can’t Leave Without It” by 21 Savage (Ft. Gunna & Lil’ Baby)
“Can’t Leave Without It” is a rap song by American rapper 21 Savage featuring fellow rappers Gunna and Lil’ Baby. This track is more or less a typical mainstream rap song, where the primary topics are money, sex and violence. For instance, all of the artists brag about the fortunes they have amassed, despite their humble beginnings. And of course this impressive level of success gives them access to a desirable assortment of women.
They also express the sentiment that if threatened, they are ready to respond with deadly force. In fact, even though it’s never outrightly specified what it is they “can’t leave without”, based on the positioning of the phrase in the chorus, they are most likely alluding to a gun, as in they can’t travel (leave home) without a gat.
