“On the Road” by Post Malone (ft. Lil Baby & Meek Mill)

Apparently the title of this song (“On the Road”) alludes to the idea of the artists being on tour. In particular, the aspect of those experiences they wish to highlight is the work ethic necessary to be as successful as they are. Put in a different way, the track’s lyrics read like the artists saying that they’re on the field.

They highlight this reality particularly in relation to certain associates who have a tendency to demand credit or compensation for the artists’ success.  However, what Post Malone and the others want to point out this isn’t the case. However, it is rather their own shrewd moves, perseverance and once again dedication to the game which are the real factors behind their accomplishments. And they have also come to realize that the aforementioned individuals who display such characteristics were actually false friends all along. And their true agenda throughout the whole endeavor was just to capitalize off of the artists.
