All I ever been was a outcast, this time in the moment, I moved past that
But the burner name is Jackson and your alias is Baghdad
Since he lives in the moment, he always has a chance to change himself and as of recently, he decided to embrace his differences from the average person and has moved past it.
In this song, Budden claims that he’s an outcast because he’s one of the few lyrical rappers left, as he constantly mentions throughout the verse.
He’s paying homage to the legendary southern hip-hop duo Outkast, for two of their biggest hits were “Ms. Jackson” and “B.O.B.(Bombs over Baghdad)” from their 1999 hit album Stankonia. He’s also paying homage to them because they’re one of the few lyrical rappers in hip-hop remaining.
