Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Your 15 minutes yeah,
are you with it? Yeah
I can’t let you knocked me off my damn pivot yea
Take a look at my life you might witness thangs
This shit wasn’t handed had to go out get it
I know niggas who close to success ain’t get it
What would you do for the price of the damn fame?
For the temporary name or the vvs chain
Wear your seat built nigga when you driving in this lane
Cause in 15 minutes we will never hear your ass again

15 minutes 15 minutes
She going to risk it all for 15 minutes
Suicide drive I hope that they witness
15 minutes, 15 Minutes

There’s no way ah that somebody else can love you
There’s no way ah that somebody else could care no
Why shouldn't you be famous for what you been through
You really had to sacrifice just to come up from down there yeah
You can’t let them tell you ain’t the shit ooo
Bought that ass with your money Paid them lips too
I know mother tell they daughter change your motherfucking face up
I still think you fine with all that make up
You’d do anything for the price of damn fame
Or the temporary name
Just so that they know you came
In the club getting wet singing trapping in the rain
By the morning it all dry up
Better get it while you can

15 minutes 15 minutes




She going to risk it all for 15 minutes
Suicide drive I hope that they witness Yeah

Overall Meaning

In Marc E. Bassy's song "15 Minutes," the artist is reflecting on the fleeting nature of fame and the lengths some people are willing to go to attain it. Throughout the song, he questions whether it's worth it to abandon one's authenticity and integrity in order to be recognized in the public eye. The lyrics contain several references to the sacrifices and risks that people might take to gain fame, including questionable cosmetic procedures and reckless behavior, all for the sake of being in the spotlight for just a few fleeting moments. Bassy warns that in the end, those 15 minutes of fame might not be worth the cost, and that people should be careful not to let their pursuit of fame consume them.


The chorus of the song repeats the phrase "15 minutes," which is a reference to the famous quote by artist Andy Warhol: "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes." The song's verses build upon this idea, exploring the desperation and ambition that can lead someone to risk everything just for a brief moment of notoriety. In particular, the line "In 15 minutes we will never hear your ass again" reinforces the idea that fame is fleeting, and that there is always someone else waiting in the wings to take your place.


Overall, "15 Minutes" can be interpreted as a cautionary tale about the dangers of obsession with fame and the importance of staying true to oneself. Marc E. Bassy encourages listeners to focus on the things that truly matter, rather than chasing after temporary prestige and recognition.
