D'usse

Album: Single Release Only (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Wayne kicks off this cut with a shout-out to Jay Z. D'usse is the name of the Hov endorsed brand of cognac.

    So why did Wayne name drop Jay-Z? He explained to MTV News: "Hov is the god — I'll give Hov a big shout out at all times."

    "But we was just on that D'usse heavy," Wayne added. "I don't write none of my music — I don't write it down, so I just go in there and say whatever come to my mind. So what came to my mind that night, was what was on my mind that night." (laughs)
  • Weezy spits further provocative lines on top of Lee Major's triumphant beat, including some rhymes where he references his time in jail for criminal possession for a weapon:

    Shoot you in that Earth
    Get earthworms on me, nigga
    I've been did my time I'm getting better with time
    But real n—as don't whine
    We'll burn down your vineyard


    Wayne is saying that his prison stint did him no harm as he matured there and is now even better at rapping.
