  • Lyrics
  • This T-Minus-produced track features Young Thug and J Cole trading flexes about money, woman, drugs and violence.
  • "The London" is a luxury hotel located in Midtown Manhattan. The high-class establishment comes into play during the chorus of this song sung by Travis Scott.

    Meet me at The London
    If you find time, we can run one
    Talk about some things, we can't undo
    You just send the pin, I can find you


    The rapper is requesting somebody to meet him at The London, The fact that he is doing so is an allusion to his huge amount of wealth.
  • Thug and Travis have a long history together and this song marked their eighth release. Their best known cut together is "Pick Up The Phone."
  • J. Cole's verse tweaked with Auto-Tune finds him talking about his recent run of features.

    I left a flock of rappers dead and buried
    A verse from me is like eleven birds
    I did the math, it's like 2000 dollars every word


    The track marked Cole's fifth feature of 2019, following 21 Savage's "A Lot," Ari Lennox's "Shea Butter Baby," Offset's "How Did I Get Here" and Ty Dolla $ign's "Purple Emoji."
  • "The London" marked Cole's first collaboration both with Thug and Scott.
  • T-Minus, who produced Cole's "Middle Child," supplied the instrumentation for this track.
