Should've gone with my first love
Maybe moved out to Vigo and wrote books in cursive
Learned a little French and do the film I've been tryna make
And translate the feeling I was feeling at my modern-day
One of Blu’s true loves is film. He’s made a lot of references to it throughout his whole career.
He mentions moving out to Vigo, a city in Spain, but it’s also a movie, which explains the following lines. The movie is based on the life of classic French cineast Jean Vigo and follows his daily struggle with sanity, normal life and uncompromising filmmaking.
This ties in with the whole message of the song because Blu talks about the struggles he’s had with trying to live a simple life and maintaining his sanity and passion within the music industry.
