The intro of the song “H00DBYAIR” lyrics by Playboi Carti talks about getting high on addictive substances. Then, the first verse of the song begins with a provocative projected self-confidence. Most people would rather call this an “overconfidence” where he talks about getting things his way. As a famed artist, it is entirely realistic but in most cases, artists are simply exaggerating their strength. He says he was only seventeen when he first began recording his songs. However, he says he isn’t trying to become the next Michael Jackson. Many artists have stolen his unique style but he has no problem with it. This is because his uniqueness has its value. He is living his best life with his romantic interests around him despite how hard other people try to bring him down. But if his hater gets physically threatening to him, he doesn’t shy away in participating in violence.

In the Bridge section of the song, Playboi Carti references the artist named ‘Homixide Mali’ and talks about Mali’s girl as well as Mali’s world. He always refers to someone loyal to him any chance he gets. Then, in the outro section, he says he tried another addictive substance when he was only twenty-four. He says this is the same age when he had his daughter. At twenty-seven, he had another child, Yves Carter. Now, Carti considers himself to be successful. He doesn’t compete like he used to anymore. Now, he he lets both the sun and moon beat him on his schedule. This means he used to wake up before the sun and sleep after the moon.
