One of the realest tracks that Lil Boosie has made is called I Quit. If you ain’t up on this track, then you are missing out on a good story. He wrote this track and discusses how codeine messed up his liver in a major way. If you pay attention to the lyrics, the title “I quit” is making reference to the fact that he wants to give up some of his habits that have led to damage his physical body. Many substances are highly addicting and when you are living the fast life, many times the instant gratification of using is the only focus that you have.
He ended up on a hospital bed due to the fact that he was messing with certain types of drugs. In the song he talks about it being embarrassing and a very scary event to have survived. As you know if you have heard the song My Struggle, he has been through much more than the average person. Boosie has a lot of conditions like diabetes that can in fact be life threatening at certain points and very hard to manage. That is just one example of a difficult thing that he has had to cope with for awhile now.
In the chorus, he clearly states “I Quit” to all of the people listening. He prayed for himself to the lord and was luckily able to make it through his hard times. In the final verse, he reflects on having children and a family that he has to be responsible for raising. It is tough when you are struggling with a lot of different problems and it seems like your life is spinning out of control. From the perspective of a famous artist, he talks about how he is constantly doing shows, yet his body feels weak – which puts a lot of mental and physical strain on him.
