This song is a way for Chief Keef to confront his insecurities about growing up and being accepted as who he is.
First off, Chief Keef named the song Love Sosa, a subliminal cry for attention. Keef is asking for people to Love Sosa because he feels unloved in the rap game after the remix of I Don’t Like came out. Everyone attacked Keef’s rhyming ability saying he shouldn’t have even been featured on the remix. This prompted Keef, in a moment of insecurity and hostility, to claim that Kanye was not responsible for his success. He merely wanted people to know that the song was made famous off his talent.
Keef mentions that others know he is grown up in the line “ya’ll know I’m a grown boy”. He is saying that even though he is only 17 years old, he has experienced enough in his life that he feels as though he has achieved man hood and he wants others to recognize this. People often talked about how he was too young to be doing what he is doing and talking about what he’s talking about. Keef wanted people to realize these claims just aren’t true.
When Keef mentions that people are “broke boys”, he is saying that they are not earning as much as he is, implying they are not as productive in their adult life as he already is. The reason he says it twice in the hook is because of his insecurity, he couldn’t contain the thought to just one line and had to throw extra emphasis on it.
At the end of the day, Keef just wants people to accept Keef for who he is. He is an adult, he is proud of who he has become and wants people to treat him like a person, and not just a figure on display.
