how does it not make sense.

He's portraying his depression as a woman which he can't seem to get rid of.

like my man said he is personifying depression in the form of a female that he cant get rid of.he doesnt want depression but cant seem to escape it. when he says its beautiful to him he's kinda sayin that he is allured by it almost addicted cuz no matter how hard he try he keep fallin for it even when his n*ggas is sayin snap out of it. he also says she dont look good and thats when he is not depressed......get it...the sh*t is deep i fux wit that song

^^ yeh when shes in her gym clothes and her body is the baddest...maybe everyone with depression is different though...i see for the most part what he is saying...just some parts didnt make sense... im currently on xanax, effexor and pexeva for depression, anxiety and panic attacks...its hard..and its cool to have an artist do a song about it...b/c it effects alot of people.

He's got a lot more than one song about it. Listen to the Mood Muzik mixtapes.



^^ although not about depression directly, still a very hot "mood muzik" track.

"n*gga's tried to tell me her head was insane."

That was a clue for me that it probably dealt with his depression.

"If it k!lls you, it's gonna k!ll me."

A lot of subtle hints in the joint. I didn't figure it was depression on the first few listens. I seriously thought it was about some crazy bi*ch who just-so-happened to not be Angie this time.

Exxxes Lyrics

Joe Budden - Exxxes (Produced by The Klasix)

[Hook x2]

She be callin my name
Screamin real loud, I would think she in pain
n*ggas tried to tell me her head was insane
Everything she'd do itd take a toll on my brain
It seemed a little strange

But she be callin my name
Screamin real loud, I would think she in pain
n*ggas tried to tell me her head was insane
Everything she'd do itd take a toll on my brain
It seemed a little strange
But she be callin my....



[Verse 1]

She don't got a name so for now let's call her Ashley
Had her gym clothes on, seen her when she passed me
Met her up at Exxon, body was the nicest
Cursin up a storm, she complainin bout the prices
She just left Toronto for Jerz bought a condo
Know everything about her tho we never had a convo
Pops wasnt 'round much, her mother raised her
Got so much in common that i dont like to face her
Her parents is dope heads, she dropped out of school too
Got the same tat's as me and i found that unusual
Mad i smoke cigs, said they bad for my own health
Said she'll never love me cause i dont love my own self
Gave me the a.ss the first night and I gladly tossed it
Best part was I aint even have to ask for it
Her period dont ever come in when i d**k her down
She always run, but


[Hook x2]


[Verse 2]

She like to scream so the neighbors might hear her
For some reason liked it in front of the mirror
Let me make it clearer
She be makin strange requests and I aint talkin bout just pullin her hair (Uhhh)
She be sayin choke me like I lost all respect
And every time I do, marks show up on my neck
She say punch her, smack her, like ima attack her
I say you a fool, I say just do what I ask ya
I be goin slow until she tell me do it faster
Every time im out, look how these n*ggas just harass her
I dont understand it, she's so unattractive
Shorty lookin terrible plus she come with baggage
I tapped it, though she below my average it deceives me
She be talkin marriage sayin she'll never leave me
I say ima bounce but I say I dont believe me
She f**ks me every time she see me


[Hook x2]


[Verse 3]

Just strangle her, throw her off the balcony, dangle her
mangle her, how long have I carried this anger for?
How come when we argue, we gotta get physical?
Weak crucial conflict, she end up in critical
Habitual, happens daily like its our ritual
but show your face b***h! stop bein invisible
Is this just my mantle? is she just a symbol?
there for me to look at, everthying that I resemble
Sometimes during s3x ive led another name
Do that mean I look at me and be ashamed?
Im cheatin on me, wit a hottie wit a body
who so happened to embody, everything that I so happened to not be
I be tryin to leave her, but then I get lenient
Since im in this room alone, she becomes convenient
And then we lie together, cry together
I swear I hope we die together


[Hook x2]


[Verse 4]
(Look)
I finally grew the balls to tell shorty we should seperate
Save your breath, nothin you could do to make me hesitate
Theres no room for me in you to grow
Dont love me and leave me alone, do both
Did she, apologize for anything that she did say?
Without me she kept thinking the reason to live
Said she'll miss gettin piped down,
then she picks up a shank
I had to tell the crazy b***h to put the knife down
Cryin, eye shadow on her face, filthy
Feel me, if you k!ll you its gon' k!ll me
Really, she said you neglect me
I said we the same so, whatever you do is gon' affect me
You know I cant let it be,
So if we gotta stay together just to coexist, then so it isss... is
She said I love you and hugged me til the bed (?????) proceeded to f**k me

He's probably saying that he abuses himself, depressed, low self-worth or something.

At least that's what I thought.

The chick that he's rapping about is basically a female incarnation of himself. He says it in the song. You'll get it in the 3rd verse.
