Bitch niggas always jackin' blood, but I know they fu

What does "fu" mean in this context? I'm sure it isn't "fuck you".

    Also, it's presumptuous to assume 6ix9ine has a low IQ considering what he has set out to do. He wants money and fame, and through his music has accomplished his goals. That is more than most people can say. One can say his success is only because an entire generation is foolish, but I have many extremely intelligent friends that love his music and envy the lifestyle he touts. He has done incredibly foolish things but they don't necessarily correlate with his intelligence. This is only my opinion, and each are entitled to their own. – Remi Dec 5 '18 at 21:27

Personally, I am much more curious about "jacking blood". According to UD, Jacking is slang for "stealing" but why "blood"? Does the blood represent toil and sweat? Effort? Pain? Suffering?

As for “fu” I think it's the lowercase version of FU (F.U) an abbreviation of fuck you, the singer, 6ix9ine (six nine) is just pronouncing the initialism as if it were a word, he's turned it into an acronym. Yes, I did listen to the piece.

acronym An abbreviation formed from the initial letters of other words and pronounced as a word (e.g. ASCII, NASA).

  • He is saying about Bloods gang in that line, and jacking I think means to lie I have found it at UD. I saw a lot of lines where he sang he beat someone's ass but in fact he just had a beef spitting words ;) – Дмитрий Dec 6 '18 at 12:07
  • @Дмитрий oh thanks, "blood gangs" makes a bit more sense now. Hmm... I checked the spelling and it is written "Bloods gang" the "s" plural is tagged onto "blood". Fascinating! – Mari-Lou A Dec 6 '18 at 12:16

I believe in this context "fu" or "foo" means skill, power or magic - as in kung-fu, or "my Google-foo is not working today".

but I know they fu.

could be rephrased as:

but I am onto them.

Sorry, no references for this one.

  • I seriously doubt that was the rapper's intention. The song is filled with expletives and outrage. – Mari-Lou A Dec 6 '18 at 11:18
