Hit the freeway, go at least 'bout eighty
Boned so much that summer, even had him a baby
See back-back then-then, if you had a car
It was special to have A car (at all) in the Chi at this time, the fact that he had one with a radio and spinners definitely got him a lot of action with the girls. This unfortunately led to him knocking some girl up.
Him driving 80 miles per hour on the freeway is just more evidence of how irresponsible Marley was at this age, but money plus youth is what this is a result of.
“Back-back then-then” can also be seen as an allusion to the 2005 hit single, “Back Then,” from Houston rapper, Mike Jones — a close contributor of Paul Wall’s, who also appears on “Drive Slow.”
