Ain't Shit
Doja Cat Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Man
This happened one, two, three times too much
These dumb-ass niggas

Niggas ain't shit
Come up in yo' crib
All up in yo' fridge
Can't pay rent
Look at what you did
Listen to your friends
When they said
"Niggas ain't shit" 'cause

Niggas ain't shit
Come up in yo' crib
All up in yo' fridge
Can't pay rent
Look at what you did
Listen to your friends
When they said
"Niggas ain't shit" 'cause (um)

You can say that again
Niggas is square, like Madison
I can't even really get mad at them
They fall, then I gotta face palm
Shook him like a 8-ball, and it's embarrassing
Ten page text, should've wrote a book, could've made a bag
But he broke, and he still waitin' 'til I can chill
And he really think I'ma get back to him
Doing too much, relax a bit
Acting like that 'cause your dad's a bitch
Must be the way that the planets is
Must be your face, 'cause it's not your dick
I'm a freak not a masochist
Should've known you had the baddest bitch
Left on read and can't give head
Really you ain't shit, need a laxative

Niggas ain't shit
Come up in yo' crib
All up in yo' fridge
Can't pay rent
Look at what you did
Listen to your friends
When they said
"Niggas ain't shit" 'cause

Niggas ain't shit
Come up in yo' crib
All up in yo' fridge
Can't pay rent
Look at what you did
Listen to your friends
When they said
"Niggas ain't shit", 'cause

Said that's not cheating if I wasn't with yo' ass, yo (it's not)
You kept secrets and yo' cousin told me that, so (yo' cousin)
Logical thinking is just something that you lack, so
What you even mad for? Looking like a stick up in yo' asshole
I'm not yo' mommy, nigga (nope)
Find a new hobby, nigga (oh, shit)
Return, yo, 'fore I get picked up
Yo' shits in the lobby, nigga (go off)
I'm not gon' key your car ('kay)
Or call your fucking mom (woo)
You should've payed my rent (woo)
Go get a fucking job (ahh)

Niggas ain't shit
Come up in yo' crib
All up in yo' fridge
Can't pay rent
Look at what you did
Listen to your friends
When they said
"Niggas ain't shit" 'cause

Niggas ain't shit
Come up in yo' crib
All up in yo' fridge
Can't pay rent
Look at what you did

Overall Meaning

Doja Cat's song "Ain't Shit" describes her frustration with men who act entitled and disrespectful, while simultaneously being financially dependent on her. The opening lines describe her experiencing this behavior multiple times and feeling annoyed. She then goes on to call out men who come into her home and eat her food without paying rent. Doja Cat makes it clear that she listens to her friends when they say "N****s ain't shit," because she's seen this behavior too many times.


The chorus of the song repeats "N****s ain't shit" several times, further emphasizing Doja Cat's frustration. She then goes on to describe a specific situation where a man sent her a ten-page text message instead of writing a book and making money. She mocks the man for being broke and still waiting for her to give him a chance. Doja Cat also suggests that these men act entitled because of their upbringing, blaming their fathers for their behavior.


Later in the song, Doja Cat references a situation where a man cheated on her but claims it wasn't cheating because they weren't officially together. She then calls him out for being hypocritical and lacking logical thinking skills. She refuses to do anything extreme, like keying his car or calling his mother, instead choosing to move on and for the man to simply pay her rent and get a job.


Overall, "Ain't Shit" is a bold and confident song that highlights the negative behaviors of some men while also asserting Doja Cat's independence and worth.
