Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I said that I'mma ride for my motherfuckin' nigga
Most likely I'mma die with my finger on the trigger
I've been grindin outside all day with my niggas
And I ain't goin' in unless I'm with my niggas

My nigga, my nigga (my nigga, my nigga)
My nigga, my nigga (my motherfuckin' niggas)
My nigga, my nigga (my nigga, my nigga)
My nigga, my nigga
Duh

First thing's first I love all my niggas
This rap shit cracked and I involve my niggas
You lookin' for some lean, lemme call my nigga
He sell it for the high, I need all mines nigga
Some niggas smoke smoke, some niggas drink drank
Got niggas on the block with the glock that don't think
That's a nigga back up, they in a bucket lapped up
I got to act right if you niggas wanna act up
He talkin' like a snitch no, that ain't my nigga
He trippin' off a bitch no, that ain't my nigga
Take a nigga case, yeah that's my nigga
Know him since I was eight, yeah that's my nigga
Fucked my first bitch, passed her to my nigga
Hit my first lick, passed with my nigga
Fuck them other niggas 'cause I'm down for my niggas
I ride for my niggas, fuck them other niggas (snitch)

I said that I'mma ride for my motherfuckin' nigga
Most likely I'mma die with my finger on the trigger
I've been grindin' outside all day with my niggas
And I ain't goin' in unless I'm with my niggas

My nigga, my nigga (Dope boys my niggas)
My nigga, my nigga (YG my nigga)
My nigga, my nigga (Rich Homie my nigga)
My nigga, my nigga (it's the motherfuckin' world)

Just know I'm down with the niggas down for me
I got 2 words for you, love and loyalty
It was me and my nigga, trippin' on a half a B
When we used to hit a mall and buy everything we see
Me and my down ass nigga gettin' twisted
Nigga get to trippin', knock the gravy out your biscuit
Just know I fucked with you the long way, my nigga
So when I see you out I'm like, "Hey, my nigga!"
Drink that act right by the case, my niggas
Drink that act right and get straight with my niggas
Me and my nigga ridin' dirty trynna chase them figures
Who got the yopper, who got the yola? Don't matter, go figure

I said that I'mma ride for my motherfuckin' nigga
Most likely I'mma die with my finger on the trigger
I've been grindin outside all day with my niggas
And I ain't goin' in unless I'm with my niggas

My nigga, my nigga (my motherfukin world)
My nigga, my nigga (YG my nigga)
My nigga, my nigga (Rich Homie my nigga)
My nigga, my nigga (My nigga, my)

My nigga's got K, money got weight
My nigga fronted me, he the reason I'm straight
My nigga got a house, my nigga got a lake
My nigga we eatin', my nigga get a plate
And we're still hittin' licks, my nigga, my nigga
Runnin' off a nigga shit, my nigga, my nigga
I fucked a nigga bitch with my nigga, my nigga
If a nigga talkin' shit then he ain't my nigga
My nigga, my nigga (My nigga, my nigga)
YG my nigga and I ain't goin' in, ain't trynna leave my niggas
Shawty seein' me and want to leave with a nigga
But it wasn't enough room 'cause I came with my niggas

My niggas, my niggas
I need a set of wings 'cause I'm too fly, nigga
And I'm all about my business like a suit and tie nigga
I ride for my niggas (Believe that)

I said that I'mma ride for my motherfuckin' nigga
Most likely I'mma die with my finger on the trigger
I've been grindin outside all day with my niggas
And I ain't goin' in unless I'm with my niggas

My nigga, my nigga
My nigga, my nigga (my motherfuckin niggas)
My nigga, my nigga (my nigga, my nigga)
My nigga, my nigga

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of YG's "My Nigga" are an ode to the loyalty and brotherhood between close friends. YG emphasizes the importance of sticking together with his crew, proclaiming that he will always ride for his "niggas" and will only enter a place if they're with him. These sentiments are echoed in the chorus, with the repetition of the phrase "my nigga" as an affirmation of the bond between the crew members. YG describes the various experiences he shares with his friends, from getting high together to robbing people - highlighting the depth of their relationship.


At the same time, the lyrics can be seen as problematic because of the use of the racial slur "nigga." The word has a complicated history, and its usage has sparked debates about whether it reinforces or subverts negative stereotypes. While some argue that the word has been reclaimed and redefined within the Black community, others argue that it's still linked to the legacy of slavery and oppression. The use of the word will always be contentious, and listeners are cautioned to exercise discretion and sensitivity when engaging with it.


Overall, "My Nigga" is an anthem that speaks to the enduring bond of brotherhood between close friends. It's a celebration of loyalty, camaraderie, and shared experiences.
