Boss Life

Album: Wish Me Well 3 (2017)

  • Lyrics
  • Here, YFN Lucci raps about how his lifestyle is a cut above the rest. Commenting on the inspiration for the song, Lucci told Billboard magazine, "Boss Life is like one of those tracks that make you feel good. When you come from the bottom, you find a way to make it out."
  • Lucci trades lines in verses with Offset of Migos. One of Offset's lyrics caused him to be slammed by social media for a perceived homophobic meaning.

    Pinky ring crystal clear, 40k spent on a private Lear
    60k solitaire
    I cannot vibe with queers


    Offset posted an apology for his inappropriate rhyme in a bid to combat the criticism. "I didn't write the line about gay people," Offset wrote on Instagram. "I got love for all people. My passion for fashion has lead me to a lot of gay people around me who I have mad respect for and we are very cool so I'm not in a place where I'm hating like that."

    "When I wrote that I was thinking of words that could rhyme with the others (here, lear, solitaire, bear) and I saw this definition about her having a queer feeling she was being watched and it fit what I was thinking about a stalker creepy paparazzi situation," he continued. "To me that 'queer' I don't mean someone who's gay. I mean lame people who film you, post it and stalk you. Lingo that means strange or odd. I M S O R R Y I A P O L O G I Z E I'm offended I offended anybody."
