[Intro: Lil Nas X]
(D-D-Daytrip took it to ten, hey)
Baby back, ayy, couple racks, ayy
Couple Grammys on him, couple plaques, ayy
That’s a fact, ayy, throw it back, ayy
Throw it back, ayy

[Pre-Chorus: Lil Nas X]
And this one is for the champions
I ain’t lost since I began, yeah
Funny how you said it was the end, yeah
Then I went did it again, yeah

[Chorus: Lil Nas X]
I told you long ago on the road
I got what they waiting for
I don’t run from nothing, dog
Get your soldiers, tell ’em I ain’t layin’ low
You was never really rooting for me anyway
When I’m back up at the top, I wanna hear you say
He don’t run from nothin’, dog
Get your soldiers, tell ’em that the break is over

[Verse 1: Lil Nas X]
Uh, need to, uh
Need to get this album done
Need a couple number onеs
Need a plaque on every song
Need mе like one with Nicki now
Tell a rap nigga I don’t see ya, hah
I’m a pop nigga like Bieber, hah
I don’t fuck bitches, I’m queer, hah
But these niggas bitches like Madea, yeah, yeah, yeah, ayy (Yeah)
Oh, let’s do it
I ain’t fall off, I just ain’t release my new shit
I blew up, now everybody tryna sue me
You call me Nas, but the hood call me Doobie, yeah

[Pre-Chorus: Lil Nas X]
And this one is for the champions
I ain’t lost since I began, yeah
Funny how you said it was the end, yeah
Then I went did it again, yeah

[Chorus: Lil Nas X]
I told you long ago on the road
I got what they waiting for (I got what they’re waiting for)
I don’t run from nothing, dog
Get your soldiers, tell ’em I ain’t layin’ low (Bitch, I ain’t runnin’ from nowhere)
You was never really rooting for me anyway (Ooh, ooh)
When I’m back up at the top, I wanna hear you say (Ooh, ooh)
He don’t run from nothin’, dog
Get your soldiers, tell ’em that the break is over (Yeah)

[Verse 2: Jack Harlow]
My track record so clean, they couldn’t wait to just bash me
I must be gettin’ too flashy, y’all shouldn’t have let the world gas me (Woo)
It’s too late ’cause I’m here to stay and these girls know that I’m nasty (Mmm)
I sent her back to her boyfriend with my handprint on her ass cheek
City talkin’, we takin’ notes
Tell ’em all to keep makin’ posts
Wish he could, but he can’t get close
OG so proud of me that he chokin’ up while he makin’ toasts
I’m the type that you can’t control, said I would, then I made it so
I don’t clear up rumors (Ayy), where’s y’all sense of humor? (Ayy)
I’m done makin’ jokes ’cause they got old like baby boomers
Turned my haters to consumers, I make vets feel like they juniors (Juniors)
Say your time is comin’ soon, but just like Oklahoma (Mmm)
Mine is comin’ sooner (Mmm), I’m just a late bloomer (Mmm)
I didn’t peak in high school, I’m still out here gettin’ cuter (Woo)
All these social networks and computers
Got these pussies walkin’ ’round like they ain’t losers

[Chorus: Lil Nas X]
I told you long ago on the road
I got what they waiting for (I got what they waiting for)
I don’t run from nothing, dog
Get your soldiers, tell ’em I ain’t layin’ low (Bitch, I ain’t runnin’ from nowhere)
You was never really rooting for me anyway
When I’m back up at the top, I wanna hear you say
He don’t run from nothin’, dog
Get your soldiers, tell ’em that the break is over

[Outro: Lil Nas X]
Yeah
I’m the industry baby, mmm
I’m the industry baby
Yeah“INDUSTRY BABY” sees Lil Nas X recruit Louisville native Jack Harlow for a boisterous song where they rap about their fame and success, blowing up, and their newfound statuses in the rap game. It also alludes to the criticism Lil Nas X has faced, stating that he was an industry plant.The song was first teased on October 22, 2020 with a snippet showing Nas X dancing to the song with the producer duo, Take a Daytrip. A demo version of the song leaked in full late June 2021, with the demo version using a slightly different instrumental and containing no feature. A week before the song’s release, the rapper tweeted a promise for his fans, claiming he would drop “INDUSTRY BABY” once the “Panini” music video hit 400 Million views on YouTube.The music video hit the goal shortly after and Lil Nas officially announced the song on July 19th, through a trailer which portrays him being sentenced to jail in relation to his Nike court case. The trailer revealed the release date, producers, and Jack Harlow as the feature.Lil Nas X in Genius ‘VERIFIED’ video:What I like about Jack’s bars is like he’s gonna pop some shit and he’s gonna have like some fun moments. “Sent her back to her boyfriend with my handprint on her ass cheek/City talkin’, we takin’ notes,” I thought that was fucking fire. And like other funny lines, it’s like, “I’m done makin’ jokes ‘cause they got old like baby boomers.” I’m a joked out ass motherfucker, you know, I’m always cracking jokes online. I like felt that because a lot of people, like when they see me having fun with them on live, online, like laughing and stuff, they don’t think I take what I do seriously, but I very much do.Jack Harlow, in turn, also began to praise Lil Nas:We feel each other, you know what I’m mean? We do two different things, you know, we’re in this industry for two different reasons, you know, we came in with different music. But I feel him and I’m a fan of him, and I’m a fan of what he’s doing and what he stands for. I think, he’s becoming an icon. I just like what he does, bro, like I salute him. I think, he’s brave.Lil Nas’ response:Thanks, brother.Lil Nas X in Genius ‘VERIFIED’ video:The very first day of “INDUSTRY BABY”: me and Daytrip, Roy Lenzo, like we were all in the studio, and we were thinking, like what the fuck are we making right now. And I was like upset ‘cause we tried like seven different songs and nothing was like hating for me. And I heard like… [hums the intro melody]. I was like, “Hold on, what that is? Run that back.” When I first heard it, I was like, “Wow! This sounds like some, like king, intro kind of Jay-Z, royalty kind of beat. Whatever happens with this, I definitely have to pop my shit.” I was still like in the mindset of like, “Okay, these rappers, like they not really fuck with me like that, fuck these niggas.” But then, you know, I started talking to Jack like online or whatnot. He was like a real cool guy. And from there I was like, “Oh, perfect! Boom.”Kentucky native added:I liked what he was talking about, it resonated with me. Y’all thought I was just gonna be here for a second. Look where I’m at — I’m here to stay. That’s how I feel, you know what I mean. When I first came out, I think, a lot of people had this feeling of, “Man, we’ll see. Maybe it’s a fluke.” So for me this felt like a chance. “Look, I’m here, too.” So I really resonated with the content. I love Nas and everything he’s doing but what he was saying on this song, I was like, “I feel that. I feel that, I wanna give my story.”No, “INDUSTRY BABY” marks the first collaboration between the two artists.No, this marks the first collaboration between Kanye West and both artists.
