(Ty Beats)

I be that pretty motherfucker, Harlem's what I'm reppin'
Tell my niggas quit the bitchin', we gon' make it in a second
Never disrespected, plus I'm well connected
With this Coke that I imported, just important as your president
Swagger so impressive and I don't need a necklace
But these bitches get impressed when you pull up in that 7
Them 6's, them Benzes, I gets get the freshest
Raf Simons, Rick Owens usually what I'm dressed in
Blowin' blunts, rollin' doobies up, smokin' sections
Groupies rush, hold they boobies up in my direction
Quit with all the frontin', you ain't 'round my click for nothin'
'Cause our presence is a present, just to kick it is a blessin'

This is the way it goes, this is the way we roll
'Cause everyday we on our pesos (pesos)
This is the way it goes, this is the way we roll
'Cause everyday we on our pesos (pesos)
(Gun cock, gunshot, gun a likkle bwoy)
(Gun cock, gunshot, gun a likkle bwoy)
(Gun cock, gunshot, gun a likkle bwoy)
'Cause everyday we on our pesos

Yo, yo, your bitch just said I'm hot, man, I told her I agree
She gon' really think I'm hot, if I told her my degrees
Pull up in that hard-top, showin' off my keys
Graduate school of hard-knocks, I can show you my degrees
Couple A, B, C's, bad bitch, double D's
Popping E, I don't give a F, told you I'ma G
A.S.A.P., Stevie got it on his sleeve
But I got it on my chest, my nigga, this is what I breath
Inhale, exhale, cocaine, X pills
Import, export, Harlem catching rec still (uh)
So, mami, show me how that neck feel (feel)
Later show me how the rest feel, for now just chill

This is the way it goes, this is the way we roll
'Cause everyday we on our pesos
This is the way it goes, this is the way we roll
'Cause everyday we on our pesos
(Gun cock, gunshot, gun a likkle bwoy)
(Gun cock, gunshot, gun a likkle bwoy)
(Gun cock, gunshot, gun a likkle bwoy)
'Cause everyday we on our pesos

'Cause everyday we on our pesos
'Cause everyday we on our pesos

Overall Meaning

The song "Peso" by A$AP Rocky, produced by Ty Beats, is a tribute to his hometown of Harlem and his journey as an up-and-coming rapper in the rap game. The first verse of the song is about Rocky's confidence and success in the music industry, despite the skepticism of his peers. He raps about being well-connected and importing cocaine, which he views as being just as important as the president. His swagger and fashion sense are also highlighted, as he name-drops designer Raf Simons and Rick Owens. He professes to not care about material possessions, but rather revels in the admiration of women and his association with a wealthy lifestyle.


In the second verse, Rocky reinforces his success with his education and degrees, both academic and streetwise. He brags about his sexual prowess and his refusal to follow societal norms. He mentions his affiliation with A$AP crew, with a reference to Stevie, a member who passed away. He then brings up his drug use again, referencing cocaine and ecstasy. He ends the verse with a call for a woman to satisfy his desires, ending with a command to relax.


Overall, the song is a celebration of Rocky's success and status in the rap industry, contrasted with his struggles growing up in Harlem. The message to his listeners is that with hard work and determination, one can overcome obstacles and rise to the top, especially if they are surrounded by people who support and uplift them.
