Meaning of 2nd Hand by $uicideboy$

“2nd Hand” by $uicideboy$ is a gritty and intense track that delves into themes of drug use, aggression, and rebellion against mainstream culture. Let’s break down the lyrics for a detailed interpretation:

The song begins with a menacing intro from SOULJA RAG MURDER, setting the tone for the dark, confrontational energy of the track. The mention of Grey*59, a reference to a collective associated with $uicideboy$, highlights the group’s affiliation with a distinct subculture that embraces a rebellious attitude.

In the first verse, SOULJA RAG MURDER expresses a sense of disillusionment with fame and the music industry. The references to drug use, such as Xanax and cocaine, add a layer of self-destructive behavior to the narrative. The lines “Take these shoes, last a day / Oil flowing through my veins” can be interpreted as a metaphor for the temporary nature of material possessions and the numbing effects of drugs.

The aggressive imagery continues in the verse with references to violence and a disregard for societal norms. SOULJA RAG MURDER’s defiant attitude is evident as he challenges the listener to confront their own insecurities and limitations.

Moving to the second verse by SNOWMANE, the focus shifts to a critique of materialism and conformity. The mention of brands like Supreme and Bape highlights the artist’s rejection of mainstream fashion trends in favor of a more underground, DIY aesthetic represented by FTP (f**k the Population). This defiance extends to a refusal to adhere to conventional paths or expectations.

SNOWMANE’s lyrics also touch on themes of violence and domination, with vivid descriptions of aggression and a willingness to confront danger head-on. The repeated references to drugs and criminal behavior suggest a nihilistic outlook on life, where self-destruction and rebellion become forms of empowerment.

The closing lines of the song bring a sense of fatalism and resignation, with the speaker embracing a bleak and chaotic existence. The repeated refrain of “I’m a sell pounds, sell pounds” reinforces a sense of being trapped in destructive cycles, while the imagery of darkness and closing one’s eyes metaphorically suggests a descent into oblivion.

Overall, “2nd Hand” paints a picture of a world marked by aggression, substance abuse, and defiance against societal norms. The lyrics evoke a sense of isolation and alienation, where self-destructive behaviors become coping mechanisms in an environment of chaos and despair.

Lyrics of 2nd Hand by $uicideboy$

Intro: SOULJA RAG MURDER
Grey*59, all I see is scrubs
Face mean-mugged
On a couple drugs
Smoke with Migo Plug
FTP, my blood
Grey the f*****g gang
Boy, stay in your lane

Verse 1: SOULJA RAG MURDER
Never high, just maintain
Hate this fame, hate this game
Take these shoes, last a day
Oil flowing through my veins
Lil Remains, that make that stain
Y'all look good in cellophane, mane
Insane, real blade, swing it through your f*****g brain
I said f**k 'em (f**k 'em!)
We got a problem (What?)
f**k you gonna do with it? (Huh?)
I think nada (Nah)
Just a persona (Fugazi), and I'm Nirvana (Cobain)
Poppin' xans to make you mad, I know you want some
Rollin', rollin', rollin', rollin', rollin', rollin', rollin'
Got an ounce of the coke, white snow flurry (What?)
River Road shawty, Yung Christ, one chosen
$lick tote the AK-47, stolen, woadie joscing

Verse 2: SNOWMANE
All of y'all are over-saturating 'Preme and Bape
Bitch, it's FTP all f*****g day, all y'all look the f*****g same
f**k the fame, f**k a lane
Bitch, I'm 'bout to swerve into the toll booth, and scrape the change
Bring out your dead and blamin' it on Yung Plague
Bitch, I pull up with the K
K9 by my right leg 'till I say okay
Canine on his hind legs, rippin' off your face
All I gotta say is G*59 until the grave
One color, two numbers
Three fingers in the sky, amongst the thunder
I'm like, "f**k the others"
I'ma, bring the ruckus
I might, f**k your bitch
She swears, she suffers under the covers
I'm a, I'm a, I'm a hellhound, hell-bound, shawty wanna die
I'ma sell pounds, sell pounds
Shawty said she might let them bells pound, bells pound
Shawty wanna cry, I'm like, "f**k it" every night
Keep turning black, I close my eyes
