J Hus’ “Must Be” Lyrics Meaning

J Hus’ “Must Be” has a definitive ‘hood flavor. On one hand it was released shortly after J Hus did an eight-month bid. And he addresses the idea of individuals being stereotyped due to their associations. Indeed he initially tried to rationalize the weapons’ charge which got him locked up by stating that he was carrying one as an act of self-defense. 

And the chorus and refrain of this song have a similar tone, one which insinuates that avoiding such trouble is more or less impossible where he comes from. Relatedly, the title alludes to the notion of a person being “guilty by association”. And overall what this track deals with is the street life which surrounds the artist. He makes various observations regarding such, specifically in terms of how dangerous the ‘hood can be. But once again, the main peril he perceives is one along the lines of individuals getting caught up in matters which they are not necessarily a part of.
