Best Buy
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Flash from a clear sky, let the fear fly
House party nearby, I′m bringing weird guys
I need some wet wipes and some Clear eyes
Stop signs and red lights outside Best Buy
Hit with the Maglite in my head twice
Hit the plug for the drugs, ain't tryna live a long life
I was born with the bad luck, I don′t ask why
You don't want to see me out, that's a bad sign

I′m in London, I pass by on the Gray Line
In the cut, going snowblind, under red skies
Give a fuck ′bout the next guy, might as well die
I don't fuck with you girl, bye, you′re not my type
See my bros get a hundred thousand, I might cry
Might pull up in a Lexus, but I can't drive
They say I won′t make it, but I might try
Need a glove on my hand if we gonna do a high five
Glove on my hand if we gonna do a high five
That's a goodnight

Flash from a clear sky, let the fear fly
House party nearby, I′m bringing weird guys
I need some wet wipes and some Clear eyes
Stop signs and red lights, outside Best Buy
Hit with the Maglite in my head twice
Hit the plug for the drugs, ain't tryna live a long life




I was born with the bad luck, I don't ask why
You don′t want to see me out, that′s a bad sign

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Bladee's song "Best Buy" convey a sense of detachment and recklessness. The opening line, "Flash from a clear sky, let the fear fly," suggests a sudden and unexpected burst of energy or excitement. Bladee then mentions a house party nearby, where he plans to bring along unconventional and odd individuals, further emphasizing his desire to stand out and defy societal norms.


The references to needing wet wipes and Clear Eyes indicate a potential indulgence in drugs or substances that might cause physical discomfort or impair his vision. The mention of "Stop signs and red lights outside Best Buy" could symbolize the barriers and restrictions in his life that he feels the urge to break through or disregard. These lines signify a rebellious attitude and a disregard for authority or conventional rules.


Bladee continues to explore themes of self-destruction and living on the edge. Getting hit with a Maglite in his head twice could represent the pain and turmoil he experiences as a result of his lifestyle choices. He refers to contacting his drug dealer, implying a reliance on substances as a coping mechanism or escape from his troubled existence.


The lyrics touch on Bladee's sense of fatalism, as he mentions being born with bad luck and not questioning why. This resignation to his circumstances further portrays a nihilistic viewpoint, suggesting a lack of hope for a better or longer life. The line, "You don't want to see me out, that's a bad sign," could be a warning to others, indicating that his presence or actions might lead to negative outcomes or trouble.


In the latter part of the lyrics, Bladee mentions being in London, possibly seeking solace or a fresh start in a different environment. However, he still finds himself caught up in self-destructive behavior, as indicated by the reference to going snowblind and being under red skies. The lyrics also touch upon his detachment from romantic relationships, implying that he is not interested in connecting with others on a deeper level.


Despite the pessimistic tone, Bladee acknowledges the potential for success and the desire to defy expectations. He mentions his friends achieving significant milestones, which might evoke mixed emotions within him. The mention of pulling up in a Lexus but not being able to drive can be seen as a contradiction, representing his internal conflict between ambition and the limitations he faces.


In summary, Bladee's lyrics in "Best Buy" portray a character caught between reckless self-destruction and a desire to transcend limitations. The song explores themes of detachment, rebellion, and a fatalistic worldview, with a mix of nihilism and a hint of ambition woven throughout.
