Heyy: the song lyrics and the meaning

Heyy is a song about how life turned out for Lil Baby in the last few years. In the lyrics, Lil Baby describes how he managed to reach real success in the music industry, how girls want him, how he’s able to make expensive gifts for them, and how the community considers him a hero.

The first verse is mainly dedicated to his relationship with girls. He says that a girl cut him off, probably because one of her friends pushed her to do so, but he knows she will come back, and he will again be full of attention for her. That comes up with the explicit urban slang Lil Baby always uses in his songs.

My favorite b* *h just cut me off and she won’t even let me know the reason (Yeah)
It’s prolly one of her lil’ messy hatin’-a – friends bein’ evil
I ain’t stressin’ ’bout it, she’ll come around when she wanna eat it up

You gotta really pay attention, I’m not mumblin’
She tryna have a good time, she wanna come with us

Her last bag was a crocodile Kelly
Got it chocolate to match her skin

In the following lines, the rapper shows happiness for the way he managed to succeed in life. Everybody in the block wants to be his friend and hang out with him so much that he has no time for them.

Message thread full of, “Where you ats?” and “Pull up on me”
Bunch of “Whens” and “Wheres”
Younngings out here wildin’ with no guidance
All they care about is who they kill

The ghetto is dangerous, and people need help understanding life’s actual values. Lil Baby knows it and knows that not everybody will emerge from that environment. It’s life, and it’s tough. That’s why the rapper is happy he left the bottom levels of society.

It’s a better life out here
I promise, brodie, I’ma keep it in they ear
I know how it feel to spin a opp
But it feel way better to count a million
I come from the bottom of the bottom
I shot right up through the f**in’ ceilin’

Celebrating this success is the main topic of many of Lil Baby’s songs, and Heyy lyrics confirm it. In the second verse, he looks happy about how people in the ghetto esteem him. People recognize him; girls want him; he also mentions how he manages to hang out with two girls on the same night, sleeping in the same hotel.

They see how we comin’, think we ghetto
Until their children tell ’em I’m their hero
Flight attendant said I look familiar
Crack a smile, tell her, “It’s a small world”

Two b* *hes on the same itinerary
Same flight, same hotel, they don’t even know each other yet (Yeah)
One of them don’t say nothin’, other askin’, “Do we go together yet?”

In the chorus, Lil Baby explains how he wants to enjoy all aspects of life fully, especially when he meets a girl for the first time.

Hey
Everybody lit, can’t put our fire out
Hey
Soon as it pop, bro, pull that fire out
Hey
This her first time comin’ to my house
Hey
Better go hard, girl, this your try-outs

That’s the real meaning of the lyrics inside Heyy: I made it, I came out of the ghetto, and I know it’s an extraordinary achievement; now I’m enjoying my new life, aware of how precious it is, and willing to take all the pleasures I can.

The complete lyrics

My favorite b* *h just cut me off and she won’t even let me know the reason (Yeah)
It’s prolly one of her lil’ messy hatin’-a – friends bein’ evil
I ain’t stressin’ ’bout it, she’ll come around when she wanna eat it up
Slow stroke, fast stroke, grind in it, I’m a real pleaser
Sixty hoes in New York havin’ dinner
Bottega send it to me soon as they get it
I put Maybach seats in the Sprinter
Make sure everybody sit comfortable

You gotta really pay attention, I’m not mumblin’
She tryna have a good time, she wanna come with us
They know we can’t be f**ed with, they not one of us
It’s done been some times I slipped, I’m not fallin’
Brabus baby blue, the inside too
I’m feelin’ like a kid again
They thought I got lucky last time
F**k it, I’m back on that s**t again

Her last bag was a crocodile Kelly
Got it chocolate to match her skin
I just gave bro a hunnid pounds of wham
Told him, “Tell the city it’s in”
Majority of the time, I hi and bye these n**as
I ain’t with all that lockin’ in s**t
Money over everything, try to stop it
You get popped right then and there

Message thread full of, “Where you ats?” and “Pull up on me”
Bunch of “Whens” and “Wheres”
Younngings out here wildin’ with no guidance
All they care about is who they kill
I was tryna keep that s**t in order
It got harder ’cause I was never there

It’s a better life out here
I promise, brodie, I’ma keep it in they ear
I know how it feel to spin a opp
But it feel way better to count a million
I come from the bottom of the bottom
I shot right up through the f**kin’ ceilin’

Hey
Everybody lit, can’t put our fire out
Hey
Soon as it pop, bro, pull that fire out
Hey
This her first time comin’ to my house
Hey
Better go hard, girl, this your try-outs

Yeah, stay down, hustle hard until you come up
Take some, only when you need it
You won’t make it far bein’ greedy
My grandma taught me how to be a leader
If we fly commercial, we got greeters
They just know that we important people
They see how we comin’, think we ghetto
Until their children tell ’em I’m their hero

Flight attendant said I look familiar
Crack a smile, tell her, “It’s a small world”
Oh, that’s your b* *h? That’s my hoe too
We gon’ share her, call her, “Our girl”
Real street music, I ran that field
If you can hit that, then she ain’t my girl
Get your lick back, come step in my world
Two b* *es on the same itinerary

Same flight, same hotel, they don’t even know each other yet (Yeah)
One of them don’t say nothin’, other askin’, “Do we go together yet?”
Young turnt n**a, ain’t no holdin’ back
This a Brabus, bro, not a regular Wagon
I don’t kiss and tell, I ain’t into that
I don’t think I met a n**a colder yet, like

Hey
Everybody lit, can’t put our fire out
Hey
Soon as it pop, bro, pull that fire out
Hey
This her first time comin’ to my house
Hey
Better go hard, girl, this your try-outs
