Trash Star
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I've been doing this shit
(Yeah let's go)

Tranquilizers got me tranq, fill the blank
Actually I fill the bank, how you feel about that?
Naturally I'm comin' back, cut the crap
I've been cutting up the check, hundred bands
Hundred bands, hundred bands
I've been cuttin' up the check, hundred bands
Gotta pay me in advance, hundred bands
Hundred bands, ay, hundred bands

On to the next
I've been up since 1 AM
Big checks
Where's the rest?
Ecco countin' up for me, it's really crazy
I'm with Thaiboy in the Lex (Thaiboy)
What the fuck, I thought you didn't wanna be around us
We live and direct
Comin' at you, Trash Island, yeah we goin' crazy
They didn't wanna see me win
Trash Island, yeah we goin' crazy
Fucked it, fucked it up, I was close to being fed up with this shit
Trash Star, yeah I'm feelin' better about this shit
Drain life, baby let me tell you about this shit
Crushed up, I thought it was hard, it's really easy
What's up, put a trademark on the night
94, not five
They gon' do it all for D9
Live and die by this shit, D9
D9, D9
Trash Island, yeah we goin' crazy

Tranquilizers got me tranq, fill the blank
Actually I fill the bank, how you feel about that?
Naturally I'm comin' back, cut the crap
I've been cutting up the check, hundred bands
Hundred bands, hundred bands
I've been cuttin' up the check, hundred bands
Gotta pay me in advance, hundred bands
Hundred bands, ay, hundred bands
Hundred bands, hundred bands
I've been cuttin' up the check, hundred bands




Gotta pay me in advance
Hundred bands, ay, hundred bands

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Bladee & 16yrold's song Trash Star depict the life of a successful musician living a lavish lifestyle. The opening lines of the chorus, "Tranquilizers got me tranq, fill the blank, actually I fill the bank, how you feel about that?" suggest the use of drugs to cope with the pressures of fame and fortune. However, the artist is quick to point out that he's making a lot of money from his music and is forthcoming about it with lines such as "I've been cutting up the check, hundred bands, gotta pay me in advance, hundred bands."


The artist continues to talk about his success and how he's been working hard to achieve it. He mentions cutting up the check and getting paid in advance, indicating that he has a lot of money and is always looking to make more. He also mentions being up since 1 AM, suggesting that he works hard and is always on his grind. However, the song does touch on the negative aspects of fame and the music industry, with lines such as "They didn't wanna see me win" and "Fucked it, fucked it up, I was close to being fed up with this shit." The chorus repeats the lines "Trash Island, yeah we goin' crazy" which can be interpreted as the artist's nod to his team, a group of people he considers family and who have been with him throughout his journey.
