Riff: SahBabii – “Watery”

Jan 9, 2018

Diamonds on watery shit/All of my diamonds is wet like a typhoon/Bitch my diamonds on monsoon/Ho, I got water like bathrooms

from Watery lyrics by SahBabii

SahBabii centers his narrative around a simple concept: he’s so fly and fluid with his style that he’s watery. The ability to take any shape has made him a superstar, and he’s eating up all the accolades like a fat kid does cake. Everything is in place: the loose women, the piles of money and of course the fast cars. Each little morsel of wealth gives him a bloated sense of confidence, the type needed to forge on with the ridiculous facade. He’s explaining to the masses that if you want to get to his level you need to be just as watery as he is. A diluted version of every other rapper on the Billboard right now.
