3 Headed Goat

Album: Just Cause Y'all Waited 2 (2020)
Charted: 43

Songfacts®:

  • Here, Lil Durk links up with fellow Chi-town native Polo G and Atlanta rapper Lil Baby. The titular "goat" does not appear in the lyrics but alludes to the acronym G.O.A.T., or "Greatest Of All Time."
  • The song pays homage to the three rappers' come-up from inauspicious beginnings to top-selling artists. There may be a secondary meaning reflecting the trio's similar stories of rising from the streets; they are the same beast.
  • Lil Durk has worked with both the rappers before. He previously linked up with Polo G on his Family Over Everything track "Career Day," while previous collaborations with Lil Baby include his Signed to the Streets 3 cut "Downfall" and the Atlanta native's Drip Harder tune "Off White Vlone."
  • Aviator Keyyz and Cicero came up with the beat. Keyyz's other credits include Quavo's "Flip the Switch" and Young Thug's "Icey." Cicero also has Kodak Black's "Conscience" and Future's "My Peak" on his resumé.
