I'm tryna Andre the beat
Lord, can you tell me where my faith is
Andre Romelle Young is Dr. Dre’s real name, and he is also the creator of Beats by Dre performance headphones. Hoodie is asking, should he hit the “beats” like Dre did (a respected career in hip-hop), or try and make it into “heaven” (but remember, heaven in the previous line wasn’t all it was cracked up to be)?
“Lord can you tell me where my faith is” is saying he doesn’t know if he has faith in the beats, or in God, to get him where he wants to be. It’s a genuine moment after a few bars of playful irony.
