We can go to the condo and drink wine
She want to be my girl but it'll take time
She like where the cognac why we drink wine
Cause the wine get you open heard through the grape vines
Rocky wanna introduce he to the good life, but she’s like fuck that shit, where the Henny at? But Rocky wants to drink wine because its subtle and give them a mellow intoxication
“She like where the cognac why we drink wine
Cause the wine get you open heard through the grape vines”
A little subtle wordplay here. Cognac is a type of brandy, which is a hard liquor made from distilling wine. A$AP Rocky heard that wine gets you more open then cognac, which is why he prefers it.
Now where’d he hear it? Through the grape vine. Hearing something “through the grapevine” is a common phase meaning you are repeating something you heard through gossip. But the way Rocky uses it has double-meaning. It also means that A$AP heard from a LITERAL grapevine itself. This is because wine is made from the fermentation of grapes, so who would know better than the source?
It’s also worth noting that the term though the grapevine itself comes from the 1967 Marvin Gaye song “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” (written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong).
