Lyrics

(The Atomix)

I cannot love on no skeezer
That is a dub, I don’t need her
I hit her once, then I leave her
Blow up my phone for no reason
I cheated on you with a dancer
Okay, I surrender, my hands up
At least I admit it, I man up
I do not have all the answers
And I gotta stay with the nine these days
Bitches that get niggas lined these days
And I am not with all the drama, ay
Pop him just for movin’ wocky, ay
Highbridge niggas, they be wildin’, ay
You sleepin’ on me but I’m wide awake
Eliantte bring tsunamis, ay
Jump inside the water, ride the wave, yeah

Up to no goodie, I put on my hoodie
Got sick of Margielas, got rid of the Truey
And I’m on a private jet gettin’ some pussy
Givenchy, Givenchy, my luggage is Louis
Don’t wanna stress you, no, baby, I just wanna sex you
Undress you, don’t wanna caress you
Don’t wanna tell you I love you if I do not mean it
Them niggas will say that to hit you
I love you, I hate you
I don’t want you back now
Go through some things that you cannot take back now
I reach out to people
Who don’t reach me back now
I need you, I need you
It’s too late, I’m mad now
I spazzed out, they backed out, the mag now, they sat down
I love my life more than I love my lifestyle
I love my ice, how it shine even when the lights out
She pulled my lights out but I swear, no I

I cannot love on no skeezer
That is a dub, I don’t need her
I hit her once, then I leave her
Blow up my phone for no reason
I cheated on you with a dancer
Okay, I surrender, my hands up
At least I admit it, I man up
I do not have all the answers
And I gotta stay with the nine these days
Bitches that get niggas lined these days
And I am not with all the drama, ay
Pop him just for movin’ wocky, ay
Highbridge niggas, they be wildin’, ay
You sleepin’ on me but I’m wide awake
Eliantte bring tsunamis, ay
Jump inside the water, ride the wave, yeah yeah

Like (like), how (how), you (you), move (move)
Same (same), way (way), I (I), do (do)
Five (five), thou’ (thou’), ‘sand (on), on shoes (shoes)
I (I), might act a fool

I’m stuck like I’m glued, I like sex in twos
I spy with my third eye on you, I spy
You know I gotta stay ten toes
I ball like LaMelo and Lonzo
I started off wearin’ Kenzo
Bitches put me in the friend zone
She had my heart it was real cold
I took it back ’cause the bitch stole
And you never know what a bitch knows
I can’t be lovin’ no ho, oh

I cannot love on no skeezer
That is a dub, I don’t need her
I hit her once, then I leave her
Blow up my phone for no reason
I cheated on you with a dancer
Okay, I surrender, my hands up
At least I admit it, I man up
I do not have all the answers
And I gotta stay with the nine these days
Bitches that get niggas lined these days
And I am not with all the drama, ay
Pop him just for movin’ wocky, ay
Highbridge niggas, they be wildin’, ay
You sleepin’ on me but I’m wide awake
Eliantte bring tsunamis, ay
Jump inside the water, ride the wave, yeah

Like (like), how (how), you (you), move (move)
Same (same), way (way), I (I), do (do)
Five (five), thou’ (thou’), ‘sand (on), on shoes (shoes)
I (I), might act a fool

Full Lyrics

In the cauldron of hip-hop’s modern era, where emotional turmoil often dances cheek to cheek with swaggering confidence, A Boogie wit da Hoodie crafts a provocative narrative in ‘Skeezers.’ The track unfolds like a psychological thriller, peeling back layers of bravado to reveal a conflicted psyche wrestling with concepts of trust and love.

At first glance, the lyrics might seem drowned in the colloquial swagger of the streets, but a dissection of the words and rhymes sung by A Boogie tells us a story of complexity, pain, and self-awareness. ‘Skeezers,’ serves not only as a banger for the speakers but as an introspection of the artist’s heart.

Unpacking the Modern Skeezer: A Dance with Distrust

In ‘Skeezers,’ A Boogie addresses the archetype of women he refers to as ‘skeezers,’ a derogatory term for someone who’s considered deceitful or disloyal. Here, the rapper is clear ‘I cannot love on no skeezer’ which indicates a firm stance against investing feelings in relationships he views as transient and untrustworthy.

The repeated assertion, ‘That is a dub, I don’t need her,’ drives home his commitment to self-preservation in a world where he feels love can quickly turn into a liability. The artist spills out his vulnerability – the lyrics are a shield, a way of protecting oneself in a landscape where emotional attachment could be synonymous with weakness.

A Confession Amid the Bravado: ‘I cheated on you with a dancer’

In a striking moment of candor, A Boogie admits to infidelity, ‘I cheated on you with a dancer.’ It’s a rare glimpse into the complex inner mechanics of the artist’s relationships. This confession, coupled with ‘Okay, I surrender, my hands up,’ suggests a paradox – an acknowledgment of wrongdoing and a cry for understanding within the fortress of his pride.

A Boogie then challenges the norms of masculinity in hip-hop by claiming, ‘At least I admit it, I man up.’ It’s an introspective line that acknowledges moral flaws while asserting that true strength lies in facing one’s weaknesses, an act that often takes more courage than maintaining a façade of cold detachment.

Swimming in Materialism: ‘Givenchy, Givenchy, my luggage is Louis’

Amidst the emotional chaos, material success becomes a raft for A Boogie. The juxtaposition of luxury brands and personal strife underscores a central theme in modern rap—external wealth as a marker of success, even when internal turmoil abounds.

As he boasts about his affluence and travel, ‘And I’m on a private jet gettin’ some pussy,’ we can’t help but wonder if these experiences are as fulfilling as they seem, or if they are just another means of distraction from the emotional reality he expresses elsewhere in the track.

The Hidden Meaning: ‘I love my life more than I love my lifestyle’

Perhaps the most revealing line in ‘Skeezers’ is ‘I love my life more than I love my lifestyle.’ This moment of clarity cuts through the bravado like a knife through butter. A Boogie sheds the protective layers of hedonism and extravagance to touch upon a truth that resonates with the listener: the distinction between genuine contentment and the facade often presented to the world.

It is a rare acknowledgment that, beyond the glitz, there is a love for life’s simplicities and an understanding that the artist’s portrayed lifestyle, however enviable it may appear, is not the source of true happiness.

Catching Memorable Lines: ‘I spy with my third eye on you, I spy’

Within the layers of lyrics, A Boogie springs a catchphrase that sticks – ‘I spy with my third eye on you, I spy.’ This line resonates a deeper sense of vigilance, hinting at a level of spiritual or psychological insight beyond the primary senses. It speaks to an overarching theme of watchfulness and taps into the idea of being acutely aware of the motives and intentions of others.

This phrase plays with the concept of the third eye, often associated with enlightenment and perception in Eastern philosophies, weaving it into the fabric of the song’s narrative about caution and self-defense against potential deceit or harm.
