It's iffy, you miss me

from Childish Gambino (Ft. Lloyd) – III. Telegraph Ave. ("Oakland" by Lloyd) Lyrics on Rap Genius


Listen closely for a girl in the background singing with Gambino.

“It’s iffy” is sung as a probable response to the question in the previous line, meaning that both Childish and his girl may not be so hurt if they actually part ways, or they simply don’t know. This adds to the uncertain tone that has been built.

Both parties do acknowledge that regardless of the circumstances, they still do and will miss each other, which not only adds uncertainty, but goes a step further and makes these lines paradoxical.
