Meaning of ‘Peek A Boo’ by ‘Lil Yachty’ feat. Migos

Released: 2017

Peek-a-boo by Lil Yachty, featuring Migos, cranks up the club banger vibes, all about the hustle, power, and play. It’s a commentary on their rise to fame, the flashy lifestyle of money, women, and backing down to no one.

Starting with the hook, “play with that pussy like peek-a-boo” and “play with that money like peek-a-boo”, Yachty uses the child’s game ‘peek-a-boo’ to depict his playful dealing with women and money. “Broke ass bitch ass nigga / I’m not finna play with you, that’s what these rappers do” is a bold remark on those who don’t match his hustle, and a clear dig at other rappers who just front and don’t keep it real.

His line “Red dot, red dot, red dot, red dot, red dot, on his nose like Rudolph” refers to the red laser sight on a gun, aimed at anyone who crosses him, while referencing the famous red-nosed reindeer. When he says, “Fuck her, then fuck on her sister, I’m ruthless”, Yachty paints a picture of a player lifestyle, not committing to any woman.

Moving on to the lines by Migos, “Open your eyes, bitch you see all this money” and “Made that lil’ bitch tape a brick to her stomach”, they highlight the lavish lifestyle of rappers and their involvement in dangerous drug dealings. The line “Mama couldn’t tell me shit, where was my daddy? (Mom)” expresses the hardships they faced growing up.

Last few lines, “Pocket rocket, go go gadget (go go) / I make a play, Madden (John)” and “Yellow bitch, Pikachu (bitch) / Cameltoe peekin’ at you (look at you)”, showcase the artists’ inventive play with words, flipping childhood references into statements about their present lifestyle. The song ends with the repeating lines of ‘peek-a-boo’ signifying their perpetuated cycle of fame, fortune, and women.
