The brother Big Mu makes space for me to move
"Ayo, this my man Mos, baby, let me introduce"
I turned around (Say word!) it was the same pretty bird
Who I had priorly observed trying to play me for the herb
Mos' bro Big Mu introduces him to a girl. Turns out it’s the same girl that dissed him the other night.
For the younguns out there, herb is 80s/90s slang for a fool or a sucker. When Ms. Fat Booty turned down a dance with Mos by feeding him that line about leaving the club, she was trying to play him for a herb.
Note: For those that think Mos says “trying to play me for the herd”, check out the video — the lyrics appear right on screen.
