5 Hooks
Logic Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Five hooks, man
Ayo, this shit only got like five hooks on it, dawg
All lyricism, ho
I was like, "Yo, I'm pickin' up that pen, I'm goin' fuckin' crazy"
I don't give a shit, dawg
Yo, we finna, ayo, ayo, fuck Raquel though, fuck that bitch

It's what you all been waitin' for, ain't it?
This No Pressure shit kinda got us reacquainted
I'm happy you could join me in this universe I painted
Such a beautiful feeling, I really can't explain it
I hit the stage and like a thousand bitches fainted (nigga, you ain't shit)
Damn, that boy, he back at it again
Droppin' bars when I pick up the pen, so let's begin
No I.D. my mentor, but it's time for the story's end, yeah
Ayy, I'm tryna do shit different now (woo)
I love this BPM, but this a different style (woo)
I never been this happy before, this a different smile
Hey, yeah, this that barbecue music
Life is a blessing and a curse depending how you use it
Some days I'm happy, some days I'm fucked up
Some days I tell the voice in my head to shut the fuck up

Yeah
Motivated by paper and pussy, always been a passion
Whippin' that Chevrolet Impala, my speakers blasting
Hungry like I'm fasting, who the illest? Just ask 'em
Louis Vuitton rhyme, relevantly old-fashioned
Like we (like we), like we always do it this time, homie
I go for my homie, I gots to shine, homie
All I do is grind, homie, all I do is rhyme
I provide for mine, homie, uh, uh, y'all know me (yeah, yeah, y'all know me, yeah)
I started with just a dollar and a dream
Like Jermaine in '09, know what I mean?
Fresh on the scene like a first take
I dropped my first tape then felt the earth shake
But let's accelerate
Dropped the second tape, 2011, and now we elevate
Def Jam wanna sign me, it's time to celebrate
But little did I know, I had so much further to go
Let's take a trip down memory lane
Logic arrived and he fucked up the game, simple and plain
Never scared to do it different, no two albums sound the same
I got tracks with Wu Tang and 2 Chainz, Killer Mike and Gucci Mane
Rap shit, trap shit, you know I do it with no shame
Spit the illest yoke or flame, always go against the grain
I was fly before the fame, before I could afford a plane
Touch down like Notre Dame to get as high as my strain
2014 release day, I need morphine
Def Jam undershipped me, now the CD on the rack
RattPack had to ask 'em to unbox it in the back
What the fuck is that? Honestly, it sound like a fable
Fast forward, 2020, I'm the face of the label and I am
Who gives a fuck about the leak when you got the well?
Watch me excel, propel, then ghost the fuck out like Dave Chappelle
You the illest, pray tell, I'm like God before Lucifer fell, I raised hell
Had bars when I was broke 'cause I couldn't raise bail
But now my bars gold 'cause I'm Wall Street, broker
Money like I sell coca, livin' La Vida Loca shit
That ain't a line just to flex, just to let you know you next
If you put your mind to it, you can do it
Trust me 'cause I been through it, now get to it, ain't nothin' to it





Actually, living your life is exponentially different from just being alive

Overall Meaning

The song "5 Hooks" by Logic is a self-reflective and introspective track that delves into the rapper's journey in the music industry and his personal growth. The title itself refers to the absence of traditional catchy hooks in the song, emphasizing the focus on pure lyricism and storytelling. Logic opens the song by expressing his disregard for commercial success and his dedication to his craft, stating that he's picking up the pen and going crazy regardless of what others may think.


He then acknowledges the anticipation surrounding his album "No Pressure" and how it has reconnected him with his fans. He describes the creation of his universe through music as a beautiful feeling that is difficult to put into words. The mention of thousands of fans fainting at his concerts is somewhat sarcastic, highlighting the absurdity of exaggerated fame. He also pays homage to No I.D., his mentor, but acknowledges that this album marks the end of a chapter in his career.


Logic shifts the focus in the second verse to his motivations in life, with money and women being driving forces. He references his love for classic Chevrolet Impala cars and the music blasting from his speakers as he cruises. Despite his hunger for success, Logic also acknowledges the importance of remaining true to his old-fashioned rhymes and being relevant in the hip-hop scene. He goes on to outline his journey in the music industry, mentioning key moments such as signing with Def Jam and collaborating with legendary artists like Wu-Tang Clan, 2 Chainz, Killer Mike, and Gucci Mane.


The third verse takes us back to Logic's earlier years, referencing his mixtapes and the humble beginnings he faced. He mentions the struggles he had to overcome, such as being undershipped by his record label and the challenges he faced before gaining recognition. He recounts the release of his debut album in 2014 and the obstacles he encountered along the way. Logic expresses that success didn't come easy, but he persevered and eventually became a prominent figure in the music industry, proudly representing his label.


As the song concludes, Logic reflects on the importance of staying focused and determined in life. He encourages listeners to chase their dreams, sharing his own journey as inspiration. The closing lines emphasize the distinction between merely existing and truly living life to the fullest.

Similar to J. Cole in 2009, do you understand what I'm saying?


Fresh on the scene like a first take

Witness my success, my rise, and then see me disappear like Dave Chappelle did


You the illest, pray tell, I'm like God before Lucifer fell, I raised hell
You're considered the best, so they say, but I'm like God before the fallen angel Lucifer, I caused chaos


Had bars when I was broke 'cause I couldn't raise bail
I had powerful lyrics even when I had no money because I couldn't afford to pay bail


But now my bars gold 'cause I'm Wall Street, broker
Now my lyrics are worth a fortune because I'm successful like a Wall Street broker


Money like I sell coca, livin' La Vida Loca shit
I have so much money it's like selling cocaine, living a lavish and wild lifestyle


That ain't a line just to flex, just to let you know you next
I'm not saying this to brag, just to inform you that you're up next


If you put your mind to it, you can do it
If you focus and work hard, you can achieve anything


Trust me 'cause I been through it, now get to it, ain't nothin' to it
Believe me, I've experienced it firsthand, so now go and do it, it's not difficult
