Know About It
Allan Kingdom Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I been faded all night long
In my lane making plays off my iPhone, all night long
In my way making plays off my iPhone, iPhone, nah nah
You don't know about it
Maybe you should know about it

Tryna get out middle class ya
Just need them racks up
I need to pull up my pants ya
I been on my last two cups
So light up and get inspired
To roll up and touch some dollars
If you tryna do the same, we gon' crush it all up
Different city different plane, you know how you found us
Had to post the status from 30,000 miles up
Got the dirty smile up
That's the golden on my tooth
When the shorties wy'lin
I ignore 'em with my crew
If they pull up on us
Then I order up a drink
Plan another new play
Nigga all I do is think

I been faded all night long
In my lane making plays off my iPhone
All night long
In my way, making plays off my iPhone, iPhone, nah nah
You don't know about it
Maybe you should know about it
You don't know about it

I'm true to my moves
Cool to my crew
I'm cool to ya boos
I stayed in the booth
I tried to get through
I couldn't get loose
I tried to get loose
I'm paying my dues
I'm all on my phone
I wish I was home
I wish that you knew
I got nothin' to prove
Don't need to impress you
I'm earning my blessings
I'm learning my lessons
Always progressin'
I'm puffin' my chest up
They fold with the pressure, I am like diamonds
I'm steady climbin'
When they were reclining
They talking grimy
They all behind me
They get blocked like a lineman aww

I been faded all night long
In my lane making plays off my iPhone
All night long
In my way, making plays off my iPhone, iPhone, nah nah
You don't know about it




Maybe you should know about it
You don't know about it

In "Know About It" by Allan Kingdom, the lyrics depict a night filled with being in a state of intoxication or euphoria, where the singer is heavily faded and engaged in their own world, making strategic moves and decisions using their iPhone. This setting of being in their own lane, detached from reality, captures a sense of being lost in the moment, focusing on personal endeavors and activities while others may not understand or be aware of the extent of what is happening. The repeated refrain "You don't know about it, Maybe you should know about it" suggests a sense of exclusivity or distinction in the experiences and actions of the singer, inviting others to potentially learn or understand more about their world.


The desire to break out of a middle-class lifestyle and accumulate wealth is expressed through the need for financial success and advancement, symbolized by amassing "racks up" and "pulling up pants" - signifying a desire for a change in status or lifestyle.

The reference to different cities and planes hints at a life of constant movement and change, with a sense of unpredictability and excitement in their pursuits.

I been faded all night long
I've been feeling intoxicated and buzzing for the whole night


In my lane making plays off my iPhone, all night long
Focused on my own path and making moves using my phone throughout the night


In my way making plays off my iPhone, iPhone, nah nah
In my own unique style, making strategic moves with my phone, no one else can copy


You don't know about it
You're unaware of what I'm doing

Perhaps you should be aware of my actions
