Them shorties screamin' they riders, but ain't none of 'em driven

from Elzhi – Detroit State of Mind Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Double entendre!

  1. The young guys claim to be “riders” — the type of person who drives around with their friends and starts trouble — but none of them are actually being driven around i.e. they’re lying about being riders.

  2. They’re enthusiastic (“screamin'”) about causing trouble with their friends, but sadly they aren’t motivated (“driven”) to do something with their lives.
