Roddy Ricch Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Pullin' out the coupe at the lot
Told 'em, "Fuck 12, fuck SWAT"
Bustin' all the bales out the box
I just hit a lick with the box
Had to put the stick in a box, mm
Pour up the whole damn seal, I'ma get lazy
I got the mojo-deals, we been trappin' like the '80s
She sucked a nigga soul, gotta Cash App
Told 'em wipe a nigga nose, say slatt, slatt
I won't never sell my soul, and I can back that
And I really wanna know, where you at, at?

I was out back, where the stash at
Cruise the city in a bulletproof Cadillac (skrrt)
'Cause I know these niggas after where the bag at (yeah)
Gotta move smarter, gotta move harder
Niggas tryna get me for my water
I lay his ass down on my son or my daughter
I had the Draco with me, Dwayne Carter
'Lotta niggas out here playin', ain't ballin'
I done put my whole arm in the rim, Vince Carter (yeah)
And I know Papi get a key for the quarter
Shawty barely seen the double C's I bought her
Got a bitch that's lookin' like Aaliyah, she a model
I got the pink slip, all my whips is key-less
Compton, I'm about to get the key to the city
Patek like the sea, forget it

Pullin' out the coupe at the lot
Told 'em, "Fuck 12, fuck SWAT"
Bustin' all the bales out the box
I just hit a lick with the box
Had to put the stick in a box, mm
Pour up the whole damn seal, I'ma get lazy
I got the mojo-deals, we been trappin' like the '80s
She sucked a nigga soul, gotta Cash App
Told 'em wipe a nigga nose, say slatt, slatt
I won't never sell my soul, and I can back that
And I really wanna know, where you at, at?

Ha-ha-ha, I been movin' 'em out
If Steelo with me, then he got the blues in the pouch (yeah)
Took her to the forest, put the wood in her mouth
Bitch don't wear no shoes in my house
The private I'm flyin' in, I never wanna fly again
I take my chances in traffic (yeah)
She suckin' on dick no hands with it
I just made the Rollie plain like a landing-strip
I'm a 2020 president candidate
I done put a hunnid bands on Zimmerman shit
I been movin' real gangsta, so that's why she pick a Crip
Shawty call me Crisco, 'cause I pop my shit
Got it out the mud, there's nothin' you can tell me, yeah
When I had the drugs, I was street-wealthy, yeah

Pullin' out the coupe at the lot
Told 'em, "Fuck 12, fuck SWAT"
Bustin' all the bales out the box
I just hit a lick with the box
Had to put the stick in a box, mm
Pour up the whole damn seal, I'ma get lazy
I got the mojo-deals, we been trappin' like the '80's
She sucked a nigga soul, gotta Cash App
Told 'em wipe a nigga nose, say slatt, slatt




I won't never sell my soul, and I can back that
And I really wanna know, where you at, at?

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Roddy Ricch's song The Box are a mixture of braggadocio and coded language. In the first verse, Ricch boasts about his money and successful criminal activity, while also referencing the recent protests against police brutality with the lines "Told 'em, 'Fuck 12, fuck SWAT'," which is a derogatory term commonly used to refer to police officers. He then goes on to describe putting "the stick in a box," which can be interpreted as concealing a weapon. He also mentions "mojo-deals," which could be a reference to occult practices or simply a way of saying that he has a lot of confidence and swagger. In the chorus, Ricch repeats the phrase "I just hit a lick with the box," which means he has had a successful and lucrative criminal operation.


In the second verse, Ricch continues to talk about his street smarts and the lengths he will go to protect his wealth and safety. He refers to his gun as "the Draco" and name-checks rapper Lil Wayne (whose real name is Dwayne Carter) to emphasize his toughness. He also raps about his expensive watches and cars, as well as his ability to attract women. In the bridge, Ricch laughs and says he has been "movin' em out," which could mean he has been selling drugs or engaging in other criminal activity.
