151 Rum

J.I.D

151 Rum Lyrics

[Intro]
Act One: Scene 4

[Chorus]
Yeah, run, Ricky, run, run, nigga, run, jump, nigga, jump
Come here they come, run, run, run, run
Gun with the drum, bum bitty bum, slump in the trunk
My city go dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb
151 rum and a blunt
Young nigga numb, numb, numb and he got a little gun
A little bitty killer really doin' it for fun
Give him a little bit and he'll get a nigga done


[Verse]
Son of a god, son of a bitch
Son of woman and man, son of a sun, in a sunken abyss

Summon a plan, please come with a script
Cover my back, cover man, please come with the blitz
Look at the stats, J.I.D like a magician
Fuck that, this some real ass shit, I paid blood for this
Taking cheese from the government
Cereal boxes with the bugs in it

Hand me down, this my brother brother's shit
Don't compare me to no other other niggas
In the city, boy they say they fucking with you
Heebie jeebie, that's a bit disgusting but I get it
I'm full attention, full of spirit but full of shit
Standing next to Lil Tay when that bullet hit him
Shit, I miss him, I wish that that bullet missed him but it didn't
And since I been living with it like a sickness

Intimate, infinite rhymes, give me the baton
A ticking, ticking time bomb, takin' the finish line

Look alive, look in my eyes, look at you niggas tryin'
And ya dumb, dumb, better run, run 'cause we fryin' em
Eastside, where ya from, from niggas wildin'
So be silent before my niggas creep silent
With street knowledge
, complete nonsense
Delete comments, online, all lies, we see violence
Every day in my eyes, they killing my niggas, die, nigga die
Pull up with the fye, get 'em nigga, it's eye for an eye

If we gotta ride, fuck it nigga, ride for the ride of ya life
Diabolical minds, I don't mind it, I like it, I like it, I love it
I fuck with you, you a thug, I'ma thug with you

We can knuck, we can buck if a nigga fuck with you
I got love for you out the mud with you, off the muscle

[Chorus]
Yeah, run Ricky, run, run nigga, run, jump nigga, jump
Come here they come run, run, run, run
Gun with the drum, bum bitty bum, slump in the trunk
My city go dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb
151 rum and a blunt
Young nigga numb, numb, numb and he got a little gun
A little bitty killer really doin' it for fun
Give him a little bit and he'll get a nigga-

About “151 Rum”

Released on September 19, 2018, “151 Rum” is the lead single from J.I.D’s 2018 album DiCaprio 2. It is J.I.D’s first solo release since his June 2017 single “Hasta Luego.”

J.I.D announced the song, its single cover art, and its release date on Instagram on September 16, 2018. In the caption of the post, J.I.D wrote a heartfelt message to his fans.

“151 Rum” is named after Bacardi 151, a discontinued brand of highly alcoholic rum, which is itself named after its alcohol proof level of 151. Bacardi 151 was sold in the US from 1963 to 2016, when its production was then discontinued indefinitely.

In an Instagram live video on the day of the song’s release, J.I.D stated that the lyrical content is based on real-life events and that prior to releasing the song, he told no one about them, including his family. He also stated that he specifically wrote this song without any similes or metaphors to focus on the song’s meaning.

  • Is there an alternate single artwork?

    Yes, the alternate artwork is an image of J.I.D depicted as a rum bottle:

  • How did the song come about?

    J.I.D:

    Initial session I recorded 151 was January. I thought it was December, but it was in January. We had rented a crib out in L.A., and it was a whole house full of creatives, producers, my homie’s, and we had people just coming through in and out every day, just working, having fun and just, you know what I’m saying, being creative. I remember, Christo first played the beat, and it was crazy because he told me. He’s like, “I know you’re gonna fuck with this one.” Him and a dude named Nice Rec produced it. I played it and I was like, “You’re right.” It was crazy because when he was making it, it was like a view out of the window, you could see the whole Hollywood Hills. We were staying in the hills and shit, so you could see everything and it just fit that picture whatever, so I was like, “Alright, we do this song, I feel like I need to make it vivid.” You know what I’m saying? Because that’s how I feel like he created the beat, so I wanted to bring the same energy type shit.

  • Do you actually drink 151 rum?

    J.I.D:

    151 rum is discontinued because it was like literally fire. If you ever seen a video, you look up on YouTube, there’s like videos of 151 rum like in a fucking lit state or whatever, whatever in flames state, whatever how I would say it. But that’s what we used to drink when we was young because that’s what we could get. It was the cheapest one. It was probably like 15 bucks or something like that, and the homies, we was like 18 or something. We probably go to the store, have somebody buy that shit, get young nigga wasted on some 151 rum.

  • What was your writing process like?

    J.I.D:

    I did like four or five versions of this, so it’s more versions to this song. This is the final version, but I did like other versions of it is what I’m trying to say. I was really trying to steer away from like punch lines. I was trying to steer away from anything that could take away from like the picture that I was trying to paint. That’s why I was saying certain things and highlighting certain words that would make you feel like, “Oh I can see that.” You know what I’m saying? Like, “Cereal boxes with the bugs in it.” That’s like a line where you can imagine that. That’s super gross, but it’s like a reality that I was pushing for. And that’s the basis of the whole verse because everything, it’s pretty sad. If you literally listen to the words, it’s more sad than it is like, “Oh he barring.” I’m barring, like it’s fun because the beat is getting you, but what I’m talking about, I was really talking about like some real painful shit for real, for real. That’s how I make music in itself, is like channeling pain and stuff like that, or channeling feelings that invoke feelings to the listener. Well, that’s just something as a artist, you never know what people are gonna connect with, but those stories right there were authentic and then the cadence of course is like good rapping, so people accepted it, but that’s nothing you can really plan for.
