Am I serious? I don’t even know
Are you hearing this? This shit is laughable
Playing into his haters' ideas to preempt their ability to affect him (like saying, “Yeah, I suck. So go ahead, tell me that I suck.”). He knows he’s not the best, but he doesn’t care—he wants to succeed while staying true to himself, regardless of whether he earns mainstream success or not. Compared to most of the production of Top 40 radio hits, this song is laughable, but CG doesn’t care because that’s not what he’s aiming for. Basically, he’s saying his haters have the wrong expectations for him.
