LMK
J Mars Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴

Let me know
Let me know, let me know, let me know, let me know
If I'm comin' on
Comin' on, comin' on, comin' on too strong
I've been known
When in the pink I'm a killa like Cameron
I been on
I been on

Send me love
Send it up, send it up, send it up, send it up
I'ma go
I've been done talking the options for too long
Antidote
Antidote, antidote, I'll find the antidote
When in Rome
When in Rome

Eighteen karats on my neck
Hit the limit on the credit
But the links is lookin' fresh
What's a dollar to respect?
Just a young-ass sinner
Tryna make another cheque

Livid in my last life
Bitches wanna act like
Pimpin' on the bankroll
I was never that nice, nah
I just call it how it is
I just call it how it is

Gone wit the backyard, kids playing after school
Gone wit the Shammgod, gone off the avenue
On with the fast cars, on with the Gucci shoes
On with the act, oh, what I gots to lose?
Gone with the, "yea yea"
On with new, new
Gone wit the fakers
On with the cool
Gone with the layers
On with the truth
Gone with the sayers
On with the blues

Butter leather on the check
If you feel me like I feel me
Put your Nikes in your step
What's a dollar to respect?
If you feel me like I feel me
Then you do it fresh to death

Picture in my last life
Bitches wanna act like
Pimpin' on the bankroll
I was never that nice
I just call it how it is
I just call it how it is

Benzes in my fast life
Bitches like the landline
They call me an asshole
I was never that nice
Ima call it how it is
Always call it how it is

East side... we slide... peace sign
These times... we fly... please stop
Preeing mine... these eyes... weak sight
Free mind, free mine, yea

East side, where we slide with the peace sign
These times, we fly, baby, please stop
Preeing mine, these eyes got a weak sight
Free ya mind, free mine, yea

Picture in my last life
Bitches wanna act like
Pimpin' on the bankroll
I was never that nice
I just call it how it is
I just call it how it is

Benzes in my fast life
Bitches like the landline
They call me an asshole
I was never that nice




Ima call it how it is
Always call it how it is

Overall Meaning

In the song "LMK" by J Mars, the repeated phrase "Let me know" reflects a desire for clear communication and understanding within a relationship. The singer questions if they are coming on too strong and seeks feedback to adjust their approach. The mention of being a "killa like Cameron" in a confident and empowered state suggests a sense of self-assurance. The references to "talking the options for too long" and finding the "antidote" could hint at a need for resolution and clarity in a situation, perhaps indicating a desire to move forward decisively.


The lyrics also touch upon themes of materialism and self-worth. The line "Eighteen karats on my neck" juxtaposed with hitting the credit limit alludes to the tension between appearances and financial realities. The mention of seeking respect over money implies a prioritization of integrity and self-value. The wordplay with "young-ass sinner" reflects a rebellious yet self-aware attitude, hinting at a complex relationship with societal norms and personal morals.


The imagery of nostalgic scenes like kids playing after school and references to fast cars and designer shoes evoke a sense of luxury and urban vitality. However, the singer acknowledges a disconnect between appearances and authenticity, noting that they "just call it how it is." This blunt honesty carries over into the depiction of relationships, with the singer refusing to conform to niceties and instead choosing to speak truthfully even if it may come across as harsh.


Towards the end of the song, there is a call for freedom and self-expression. The repetition of "East side" and "peace sign" along with the imagery of flight and open-mindedness suggests a yearning for liberation from restrictions and judgments. The singer's insistence on calling things as they are, even if it leads to being labeled negatively, emphasizes a commitment to honesty and self-awareness. Ultimately, "LMK" seems to explore the tension between external appearances, personal integrity, and the courage to express oneself authentically in a world that may not always appreciate such honesty.
