Uncut with the topside (style)
My brain fried, don’t do drugs
Had two plugs ’cause one just died (style)
I’m up late, no talk show
Fiends pop, who got blow? (Everything about JPEGs, I like)
Socks with a hole, had a bankroll
Shop never close even when it’s slow
Ain’t no way, y’all niggas never did shit for me (shit for me)
Came up off that stock, had the recipe (the recipe)
Now I do this for my legacy (my legacy)
Cop four for my dawg, gave me an extra three
You ain’t never seen no pain ’til you lost everything
Make you wanna crash out and say fuck everything (uh-uh)
But I stuck to it like fly traps, no pockets swole, no ice packs
I ask your bitch, “Do you like that?” (Do you like that?)
My young niggas step for me, like Cole, Tommy, and Pam (get to steppin’)
You don’t know shit about me, nigga, who is yo’ man?
Brown, got a one extra like the BBC
White girls all on me for the-
Love (love), my nigga roll it up
They career like Whitney in the bathtub, sad as fuck (style)
I be on my lonely, worry ’bout no gossip
Niggas pocket watchin’, all look in my wallet
Just keep it on the hush, hush
You ain’t tough, ain’t like us
Just be yourself ‘fore you need help

Uh, back in this bitch with the dope, she backin’ it up for a gram
Baby, I cannot do nothin’ with hope, I’ma try molly and Xans
They tried to get me to ghost, boy, you ain’t Kai, one twitch and you banned
Ninety degrees a coat, ho, and I ain’t showin’ my hands
Uh, I make it harder to breath
My Kimber like my emotions, I keep ’em both up my sleeve
I need more time to myself, I don’t need advice, I just need to be
Back in this bitch, what’s the issue?
You bitches ain’t barkin’ when you off the leash, fuck ’em

Uh, they don’t got nothin’ for me
It’s like I been workin’ for crumbs, now I’m feelin’ free as my speech (big steppin’)
Colin Kaep’, I’m a free agent, cap the salary, free up my team
Y’all rap like replacements, they can’t find a replacement for me
When I stalk your page and I see you livin’ life respectfully
And I tell myself, “You ain’t know her worth,” and I draft apologies, fuck

Uh, check it out, man, look (big steppin’)

Uh, these niggas act like I owe them
These niggas be dickridin’ for grown-ass men that don’t even know them
They don’t even come outside, don’t even see mans late night like Conan
They off of that two 2chan high, incels just can’t let it go like Frozen
Bet if I let off these shots, no games, you finna just dance like Gotenks
White people love makin’ excuses and bitchin’, I guess it’s what culture is for them
You know that this shit don’t stop
Black men that hate me usually tokens, broke as hell
And just mad people love me for me
While they put on a front and still nobody knows them
Don’t like when I talk like this (nah)
‘Cause they know that this shit is for them
These crackers love talkin’ ’bout me and actin’ like it’s my job to ignore them
Bitch, please (please)
Still rich, still pretty, still tourin’
Still lit, still gritty, I’m borin’
I don’t fuck with you niggas like Hogan
Trigger finger just be glitchin’, it’s programmed
I ain’t takin’ disrespect from no man
Niggas rap ’bout guns, don’t own ’em
Y’all sippin’ liquor, you can’t even hold-
I’m takin’ shots every day like DeRozan (yee, yee, molly water)

Full Lyrics

JPEGMAFIA, often known as ‘Peggy,’ has once again disrupted the soundscape with ‘STEPPA PIG,’ an unapologetically raw and self-assured track. In an era where music often tiptoes around the boundaries of controversy, Peggy stomps right through with a blend of lyrical audacity and phonic experimentation that demands a deeper dive.

Navigating through the cutthroat terrain of ‘STEPPA PIG,’ one finds a multi-layered narrative exploring themes of individualism, resilience in face of adversity, and a refusal to conform to expectations. Let’s slice through the enigma and unravel the dense tapestry of Peggy’s defiant proclamation.

A Canvas of Coping: JPEGMAFIA’s Personal Odyssey

The opening lines serve as a stark confession, flaunting an acerbic awareness. ‘My brain fried, don’t do drugs’ juxtaposes notions of temptation and self-destruction with a wry indictment of substance abuse. Stepping further, JPEGMAFIA delves into personal losses – ‘Had two plugs ’cause one just died’ – inviting listeners into a domain of precarious living, fostering empathy and understanding.

The track unfolds as a vivid narrative of survival against odds, echoing through ‘Socks with a hole, had a bankroll.’ It’s an emblem of stark contrasts – poverty and wealth, fragility and strength, making ‘STEPPA PIG’ as much a beacon of hope as it is a vessel for visceral storytelling.

Unabashed Legacy Building: From Struggle to Stardom

There is a distinct shift towards legacy, ambition, and the grind to rise above circumstances, as articulated in, ‘Came up off that stock, had the recipe.’ JPEGMAFIA isn’t just documenting his journey; he’s crafting a legend, conscientiously laying down a path for his ‘legacy.’ It’s a narrative of self-created success against every expectation and a baton of hope for those with ears to hear.

But this legacy is not without its bruises and battles, as Peggy knows all too well. ‘Make you wanna crash out and say fuck everything’ reflects an all-too-human moment of despair, yet his perseverance shines through, turning obstacles into stepping stones, adamant to let his legacy echo through time.

Revealing the Hidden Meanings: Allegory of the Steppa

In deciphering ‘STEPPA PIG,’ there is a layered allegory to be found. The term ‘steppa’ suggests an individual who is boldly taking steps forward. Yet, the ‘pig’ inclusion skews the notion, potentially reshaping the steppa into a scapegoat figure—a ‘pig’ often associated with derogatory images of dirt and greed, but here reclaimed and transformed into a symbol of tenacity and self-assurance.

JPEGMAFIA’s narrative here isn’t only about one’s personal journey, but a broader comment on societal judgment and the strength required to step beyond it. It’s an allegory for those vilified or overlooked, who through sheer determination, rewrite their own definitions.

Lyrical Fireworks: The Lines That Ignite

‘Brown, got a one extra like the BBC’ reflects not just clever wordplay, but JPEGMAFIA’s savvy navigation of cultural institutions, underscoring his assertive presence in predominantly white spaces. He further extends his defiance with ‘White girls all on me for the-‘ a line abruptly cut, redirecting us from expectant stereotypes to confront our own assumptions.

‘These crackers love talkin’ ’bout me and actin’ like it’s my job to ignore them,’ Peggy attacks directly the race-driven discourse observable in the industry and society at large. He refuses to be silenced or packaged into a palatable narrative, maintaining his unfiltered identity amidst a culture often uncomfortable with such frankness.

The STEPPA’s Manifesto: JPEGMAFIA’s Rallying Cry

‘Y’all sippin’ liquor, you can’t even hold-‘ encapsulates JPEGMAFIA’s critical view of those who indulge in the performative aspects of hip-hop culture without the stamina or experience to back it up. It’s a raw, powerful statement that challenges posers and precipitates a reflection on authenticity within the rap game.

JPEGMAFIA concludes his reflections proclaiming, ‘Still rich, still pretty, still touring.’ In this self-affirming line lies a proclamation of unshakeable self-worth amidst the chaotic whirl of the music industry and a society ready to dissect and distort. ‘STEPPA PIG’ emerges not just as a track, but as a manifesto for the steppa who continues to stride ahead, unrestrained and genuinely self-possessed.
