Talk: inside the meaning of the lyrics

Talk is one of those typical rap songs in which the rapper brags about his fame, money, and career success. Yeat makes comparisons with all the people who criticize him, showing off the symbols of his wealth and the fact that, although he’s relatively new in the music scene, his music is always at the top of the charts.

As reported by fans on Genius, the song’s beginning is a quote of the words spoken by people who tried to attend a Yeat concert that was canceled in February 2022 due to capacity problems. The original interview is here.

Yeat concert, Yeat, Yeat (Come on, man)
Man, one of the biggest artists in the world right now
We seen it all, n**as was gettin’ tazed
B* *es was poppin’ p**y by the front door
N**as was throwin’ chairs, everything was goin’ down
Fifty-thousand people, Yeat concert, twizz s**t right here
Real twizz s**t right here
You guys don’t know ’bout it

That symbolized the enormous success Yeat obtained in his music career. And the result of that success is evident in the luxury objects that the rapper shows off: the song mentions diamonds, bust-down watches (the same mentioned in the famous Bustdown Rollie Avalanches, watches that get filled with diamonds to become even more valuable), and all sorts of expensive cars: Rolls Royce, Porsche Cayenne, Mercedes Benz, and the Tonka SUV.

Huh, riding in that, big lil’ a – Tonka truck
Riding ’round with these bust-down watches on me, I got my blicky tucked (Hey, hey, hey)
Headin’ number one up on these charts, b**h, yeah, it’s stuck as what?
A-a-all we do is just go number one (Hey, hey, hey)
And I just brought in some M’s, lil’ b**h, it’s the first of the month
Riding ’round, I’m in the Cayenne, lil’ b**h, I’ma tear up the city, I’m afraid of the sun (Hey, hey, hey)
I went and painted the Benz, I switched s**t up, I wanted it done by the Don

All that is expressed without concern for what the others can say. Yeat repeats many times that he doesn’t care what the others say, pointing out that the only people he cares about are his fans, whom he defines as his true family.

All of my fans is my family, my cult, my brother, my slime, my twizzy, my money (Hey, hey, hey)
I don’t give a f**k what you sayin’, I don’t listen to it, I don’t wanna hear ’bout none

He can even afford to mention his connections to criminality (when he says the detail that he wanted his Mercedes Benz to be “done by the Don”) or drugs (the song mentions “M” and “Tes” as examples of drugs called with their urban slang). In this way, through the lyrics inside Talk, Yeat not only brags about his wealth and success but also appears as an untouchable, an important personality in rap scene that cannot be affected by criticism, hate, or accusations.

How you gon’ talk to a rat? (Huh?) How you gon’ talk to the feds? (Woo)
How you gon’ talk to the shmeds? (Woo) Now you gon’ talk to the lead (Huh?)
I don’t give a f**k what you sayin’, huh, you already heard what I said (Woo)
Yeah, I got big boy diamonds on me, yeah, I got big boy bread (Woo, woo, woo)
And I don’t give a f**k ’bout the coupe, yeah, I pop the b* *h on Tes’ (Woo, woo, woo)
You ain’t even made no money, yeah, don’t make no sense (Woo, woo, woo)
I destroyed the coupe, I’m ’bout to jump out again
