J.I “Need Me” Official Lyrics & Meaning | Verified


I started making music
when I was like 12. I remember I tried out
for the basketball team in middle school and I
didn’t even make the team like I’m walking home
after try-out just tight like I was so mad because I
know I didn’t make the team and like all my friends like they did good as I’m walking home I’m just
like yo I gotta do something. I just gotta get so good at
it that when other people try to do it they just look
stupid trying to do it next to me like and I’m 12
thinking that like I’m walking home with my bookbag angry
I’m just like fuck these kids. Fuck that coach like I was so mad. I’m glad I didn’t quit
I’m glad I didn’t give up. Fuck all the negativity I’m coming up. I can’t let none stop me you feel me? I’ve already had like two records recorded and I’m in the studio with my man Doc. A.k.a. Doc on the Beat
that’s the producer. I just had the sample
of Best of Me from Jay Z I just had it in my head
and I’m just like yo we gotta use the sample. And then he already knew it. He heard the sample for like three seconds pulled out a piano and just started coming up with the melody. But then I was like yo we
gotta make the drums different like you feel me we have
to really add a reggae. And ’cause it’s summertime
too and it was August it was late summertime. I wanted to go home and
write to it but two weeks later I ended up going to
the studio to freestyle it anyways it’s just crazy
like how I heard the record and I’m just like I really hope
this shit really takes off. And it went crazy. I really started blowing up in 2016. I was on TV show called the Rap Game. I went to Atlanta to film the show. In my head I’m just thinking
yo this gonna be like a great move for my career you feel
me I can get the exposure I need and I came home and everybody was on the wave like yo Prince of New York it’s the Prince of New York. I’m just like holy shit
that wasn’t even my name. Prince of New York was not my name. That was my Instagram name. The support was crazy but the
hatred was just ridiculous like I’m 14 and I’m reading
comments like yo I hate this kid I wanna beat this nigga up.
When I see him I’m gonna hurt him like the fuck I did to you? I’m 14 like mad ’cause your
girl she had my post nigga get out your back bro like… Mom probably gonna share my
post it’s gonna get worse. It really fucked me up
mentally like it really changed my whole mindset and it
made come outside ready like really ready for anything. This your shorty. This my wee wee. (slapping) You feel me like you know
what it is I love saying like sarcastic shit. I just have the mind for it. Like I try to say stuff
that people hear and they’re like oh my god! Like ’cause
that’s the type of music I love. I love listening to artists and they’re able to like get
me to react so just shorty on a pistol made her empty out the clip. You feel me? Get it. First of all like I was
new to the game especially when it came to females
like my first time going in. I didn’t even think pussy
could smell like that. I did not know that. Like I smelled my finger and it stunk. This shit had me tight ’cause
it’s like you don’t got enough respect for me to like be clean around me? Like it’s not hard to take
a shower you feel me like if you don’t gotta shower you
could have come to my crib. I got soap, water, take
a shower in my crib. We can get sexual. But it’s like you stink! Like you smell like Seaworld. Like this shit is crazy an aquarium. You don’t work at an aquarium
so it’s like there’s no excuse for you to be smelling like fish. I told her like you feel me
like you stink a little bit like just gotta clean
yourself if you be like that. There be drama all over the place like especially in the hood. I’d be in tune with it but
I just I’m in my own world. I don’t really need the negativity like I’m just on a path
right now and I’m just trying to continue on that path. I don’t want it fucking me up ’cause I’m just hearing
shit from other artists. They get caught up in the wrong situations at the wrong time and it’s just
like damn like you had your whole career ahead of you. For me like what could happen
now is like I could prevent anything from happening I’m gonna do it. ’cause it’s like trouble’s
so easy to come across. Fuck that like nah I’m tryna
feel me I’m trying to win. Out of 100% at least like
30% of females are good. And I don’t mean that in a foul way like I mean that because a lot of girls like it’s the same thing with guys. You feel me there’s a lot of
fucked up guys like usually you hold guys to the standard
of cheating like you expect a guy to cheat. It’s to the point where it’s even now. Like it can be anybody now. I’ve gotten played multiple times. ’cause I’m just naturally a good person. I feel like if you’re a good
person you can relate to that. You’re gonna always get played. I’m just gonna hold my head high. That’s all it is. You feel me I can’t
dwell over spilled milk. A lot of girls a lot of boys
they get hurt especially at a young age trying to fall
in love and shit like that. But it’s like you always feel
like nobody’s there for you. Sometimes people feel like
nobody’s in their corner. I’m a type of person like
I don’t care how long it’s been if we cool we cool. You call my phone like
you feel me imma pick up whatever you gotta talk
about we could talk about. I hold a lot of emotion
in I keep shit to myself and I just let it build up
and that’s not a good thing to do so it’s like when
it comes to making music I can express myself and let that shit go. In general that’s just for
people who feel alone and shit. You feel me like call my phone. I know a lot of people did you wrong. It’s good though ’cause it’s
gonna get better you know? I watch social media
I see what be going on I be seeing rappers getting
knocked out and shit like that. getting oppressed all that type of stuff. I gotta move a type of way
even if it’s not gonna happen even if it never will happen but I still gotta move a way
like many people have lost their lives and it’s just
worse now ’cause I got a name. It’s not like I’m a regular
person and it’s like oh let’s get this thing like I got a
name now like I gotta carry myself like I don’t even be
involved in all the bullshit like I try to stay away from it. I can still get caught up somehow. So it’s like I gotta move
away because a lot of people will envy a lot of people
hate and it’s like I refuse to let somebody get the chance. I can’t nah. You can never play me. it’s not happening. I came from the worst condition. I grew up in the worst conditions. But I was able to overcome it. Moving with certain people
that elevated themselves in certain ways you feel
me like as a young kid I was making power moves you feel me not a lot of 14 year old
can say they did what I did. And I did it in a positive
way like I tell you I came from nothing like where I grew up niggas was getting killed every
week like summers was hot. Summer each year you was
lucky you hit your birthday because there’s like damn
like I made another year I’m blessed to see this
year like I’ve lost a lot of people and in general like
I’m doing this for my hood like I just wanna show people
like yo ain’t shit impossible bro like. People get clout
they get lost in the sauce their mentality gets fucked up. Nah that can never be me. I just wanna lead by example
and show everybody like yo do what you put your mind to. Shit ain’t impossible. And you was on a benches
dwelling over losses it’s kinda like you sat down
and didn’t make any movements. You dwelled over shit
that happened in the past while we made movements. You feel me who the fuck is
you like you over here sad making a sob story bullshit like go out and get it you
feel me? I don’t even look like
I listen to reggae music but I’m a artist like my
ears open to anything like if it’s dope imma listen to it. You feel me? Reggae music in general it’s
just spicy like you gotta get drunk and listen to reggae music. The turn me on I wasn’t gonna use it. Until I really like said it
and heard the way it sounded on a beat and I just
thought it was powerful ’cause I flipped the whole
Jay Z record and then added something from a different record with a whole different genre. It just went together like perfectly and I was like nah this
shit gonna fuck it up like this gonna go crazy.
