"Numbers" is A Boogie wit da Hoodie's ode to accumulating wealth. He is joined on the track by Gunna, and Roddy Ricch while producer London On Da Track is also credited as a featured artist.
Run up them numbers OKC, you don't want no thunder
Running numbers is a colloquial term that is used to refer to rackets ran by organized-crime syndicates. Such illegal gambling or illegal lotteries are played mostly in poor and working class US neighborhoods.
Boogie originally titled the song "Antisocial Gangsta," from one of Roddy Ricch's rhymes.
Make some calls, you can't cop the fleet Gotta be an antisocial gangster 'cause the feds watchin' my tweets
The line is a nod to Ricch's December 2019 album, Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial. Both he and Boogie have a reputation for antisocial personalities.
Gunna's verse was likely a late addition to the song. An earlier version of the track leaked online 18 days before the release of Artist 2.0 without the Atlanta rapper's vocals.
"We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" by Taylor Swift earned an entry in the 2014 edition of the Guinness Book of Records for the fastest-selling digital single. It reached the #1 spot on iTunes just 50 minutes after its release.
