Flex
Tory Lanez Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Did I
Fuck around and drop the top on niggas
When them niggas thought I wouldn't
Did I
Fuck your bitch or something
What I did to ya why you fronting on me
Did I
Hit the trap and have it jumping
Turning nothing into something
Peeling off the corner flexing on them niggas
Shawty know a nigga came here from nothing

I got the gas on me
Being broke was the reason
Why all of these females would pass on me
Now I pull up in that S550 and I dash on them
And you know I don't spend any cash on them

When I'm pulling up inside that thang
You know I do my thing
And I drop the top on all these niggas in the way
And this is for the times a nigga shitted on me
You shitted on me, now you see the tables turning my way

So I gotta flex, I gotta flex, I gotta flex on you
For all of the times when I was a mess
And you tried to flex on me too
So I gotta flex, and I gotta flex, and flexing on you too
I know I'm wrong
Tell me what I did to you

Did I
Fuck around and drop the top on niggas
When them niggas thought I wouldn't
Did I
Fuck your bitch or something
What I did to ya why you fronting on me
Did I
Hit the trap and have it jumping
Turning nothing into something
Peeling off the corner flexing on them niggas
Shawty know a nigga came here from nothing
(Fuck, can you say to me)
(Fuck, can you say to me)

A young nigga gotta hop out and do something
Gotta let the top down to prove something
Nigga you know I I I got news for you
Everybody know I'm paid only you fronted
The fame made a nigga lose a lot of friendships
The fame made these niggas do a lot fuck shit
Couple good girls that I lost to the cause
I gotta face facts we don't talk no more
Young rich nigga on his way up
My niggas up and I hope that they stay up
You know the devil working gotta pray up
And I just pray that all my niggas
Paid up and ball like a lay up
I'm calling shawty calling
I do this often don't know what to call it
This shit exhausting but you know I'm all in
Drop the top on that thing when its gwanin'

When I'm pulling up inside that thang
You know I do my thing
And I drop the top on all these niggas in the way
And this is for the times a nigga shitted on me
You shitted on me, now you see the tables turning my way

So I gotta flex, I gotta flex, I gotta flex on you
For all of the times when I was a mess
And you tried to flex on me too
So I gotta flex, and I gotta flex, and flexing on you too
I know I'm wrong
Tell me what I did to you

Did I
Fuck around and drop the top on niggas
When them niggas thought I wouldn't
Did I
Fuck your bitch or something
What I did to ya why you fronting on me
Did I
Hit the trap and have it jumping
Turning nothing into something
Peeling off the corner flexing on them niggas
Shawty know a nigga came here from nothing
(Fuck, can you say to me)
(Fuck, can you say to me)

Can't believe when I look back at how I did it

Overall Meaning

The song "Flex" by Tory Lanez is a personal reflection on his journey from rags to riches. In the lyrics, Lanez challenges anyone who underestimated him and the things he has achieved. The opening lines, "Did I fuck around and drop the top on niggas when them niggas thought I wouldn't?" are an assertion to his triumph over all the people who doubted him. Then, he continues to ask, "Did I hit the trap and have it jumping, turning nothing into something?" which conveys the idea that he can make something out of nothing. In the chorus, he emphasizes that he has to flex on people who flexed on him before, reflecting on the times when he was trying to make a name for himself, and people were not supporting him.


The second verse is a reflection on the material gains and consequences of success. Lanez sings “being broke was the reason why all of these females would pass on me, now I pull up in that S550 and I dash on them"And you know I don't spend any cash on them." This verse shows how success has made Lanez more confident and even a bit arrogant, stating he does not spend any money on women. However, he also acknowledges how success has made a significant impact on his personal relationships and how some people have fallen into “fuck shit,” but he still prays they remain well.


Overall, Flex is a response to the critics and people who doubted Lanez on his journey to fame, showing he is tired of being pushed around by people who think they are better than him, but now he has surpassed all.
