“Mel Made Me Do It” Meaning {Explained}

Mel Made me Do it meaning

 

Here is Mel made me do it meaning. The song is Stormzy’s latest release and his first since 3 years

 

Mel Made me do it meaning

Mel made me do it is definitely a reference to his personal stylist- Melissa Wardrobe, and her amazing fashion designing sense.

But it is not as simple as that. Mel made me do it meaning is a celebration of his rich esteemed status and to an extent, Black culture and how Black musicians are making it in incredible ways but still piling the stacks when it comes to money and influence.

Think of it as something classic inspired by a cool person. In this case- Melissa

Take for example, Mel made do it meaning can easily be deciphered with the intro by Abigail Owuo, where she says “I’m not going economy, no way!”

Abigail is Stormzy’s mum and she knows that her son has achieved so much in his life that she can easily be afforded luxurious things like flying first class or business.

Mel Made me do it meaning

Listeners don’t need to think it too deeply, Mel made me do it meaning centers around a chest-thumping lyrical exercise of Stormzy stating that his personal stylist- Melisa Wardrobe, influenced this new track and made him realize how dope he just is.

 

I mean have you seen the music video? Classic.

We also hear Stormzy say that he knows he is dropping bars so much that “I know Khaleesi can’t fathom all the fire I spill nah” a reference to Game of Thrones’ character- Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons.

He compares himself as a rapper with dragons- the dragons being a significant representation of his power with lyricism and class.

Mel made me do it is a song about success, wealth and Black excellence.

There’s the use of catchphrases like “For 8 figures I will sign it”, “Got a lambo and a Rolls”. “If we every play a game of who’s winning, when you enter the room, you see me chilling”

That’s the meaning of Mel made me do it by Stormzy

Lyrics

[Verse]
I’ve been the goat for so long I guess it’s not exciting when I win
Boohoo, someone grab the violins
Every time I try a ting, top bins like Haile when he sings
So of course, they don’t like me, I’m the king
Aight, tell me why oh why would I reply to him?
I leave him hanging like Kyrie on the rim, hm
Where do I begin? I wear the 5990 in the gym
I got a thing for shiny little things
What can I say? I’m like a young black Biden with a trim (Woo)
Presidential when I’m ridin’ in the Bimz
Taking pictures with my cameraman, I’m shining in my skin
For eight-figures I’m Aubameyang, I go and sign the ting
Aight, I never wonder about who I could’ve been, ‘cah I’m here
Rose Gold frosted or ceramic
Told bro spin it so he span it
We are not the same, big Mike’s from a whole different—
Top bins, what a set piece, fling it in the net
Could’ve Jet Li kick him ’till he bled
And I’m rent-free living in their head
What’s that quote? Ooh, kill them with success
Talking smoke, please, give it all a—
Still dripping in finesse (God damn!)
Man I got figures and flows I’m a different kind of F
Got a Lambo and a Rolls, that’s a different kind of cheque
And I said I was the G.O.A.T, they didn’t listen when I—, ay
Any time I do a big fletch, just ignore me
Niggas wanna hear my side of the story
Niggas wanna hear a nigga chat like it’s Maury
Fuck that, you niggas better bask in my glory
They call me to slide through the store ‘cah I’m so patterned
To be fair we don’t go Hatton
We don’t tell lies
I think the kids call it no cappin’
The boys rough but the flows satin
I J Hus’tle and I’m MoStack’ing, they wanna’ catch me on the roads lacking
You better pray that it don’t happen (Niggas)
And I don’t sell drugs, still I’m dope rappin’
Have your whole pattern Stiff Chocolate with the book
To be fair, I don’t feel Twitter
Getting told I’m not a real spitter, by some broke-arse bill splitter
Listen, nigga, you got bigger fish to fry, like
If I ever see your girlfriend in Dubai, oh Lord
Party on the boat she’s onboard and the
Birkin is a bag you can’t afford, and she’d like one
Do the maths you ain’t the right one
It’s alright, son, we’ll send her back before the nights done
I wrote one, light one, eight-out-of-ten
She’s my aight one, think of a hit then I write one
On when I sight one
This my, this my Ghanaian flow, it’s a tight one (Uh-huh)
If she pretty then I put her on a flight
I put her on a jet if her pussy wait—
Look, my nephews are listening, my chef should be Michelin
There’s guests in my kitchen and my left wrist is glistening
And my tunes getting played from a set to a christening
They’re pissed on the net ’cause I said I ain’t listening
Ugh, real niggas know it’s all positioning
Real niggas know I’m not the victim
Alright, I am I’ll take the L, they hype the ‘gram
They tell their jokes to spite the man
I feed my folks, they bite my hand
I do the most, I’ll fly to Cannes to watch a film, then bye, alright
Headline Reading and Leeds like it’s easy
Funny when they talk about the game ‘cah it needs me
Niggas wanna hear a nigga spill it all to Zeze
Fuck that, you niggas didn’t know that I’m greazy
It’s easy, man talk shit until they see me
Believe me, all you niggas give me (Heebie jeebies)
Word to Lauryn, I will die on this Hill
You little nigga’s two figures shy on my deal
Someone slide me the bill (Okay, I got it)
What my eyes don’t see, the Messiah reveals
If it all goes left, give Jasiah my will
‘Cah I guess I’m just the bredda that they’re dying to kill, ah (Woo)
Your boys mad dark, still I shine like a grill
Yeah, I’m healthy and I’m blessed but I rhyme like I’m ill
Line bagger, holding on the line like Kalil, ooh (Ooh, ooh)
I live a life that they try to fulfil
So they hate on my name but admire my skill
And before I touch stage, gotta’ wire my ‘mil, ah
My niggas do drill that was prior to drill
If you see me with my dragons lookin’ fly in the field
Know Khaleesi couldn’t fathom all the fire I spill, nah
You old washed niggas should retire, for real
There’s a time you should move, and a time to be still
There’s a time to destroy and a time to rebuild
But all I see is washed up Godfathers and washed up podcasters
I own all my masters, I ain’t got masters
I throw a party on the yacht and wear my Yacht Master
They think I just chart top, but I’m the top charter
Gaffer like I’m Scott Parker
From when the mandem use to rock parka’s
I am Nasty, but I’m not Marcus
Genius, I could’ve clocked Harvard
My niggas slide but they are not dancers
Dead rappers wanna swap chargers
Nah, I mean they wanna swap stances
Nah, I mean they wanna trade places
Get to scrappin’ like I ain’t famous
Have you dashing like you’re Dwain Chambers
Follow fashion, man, you fake greatness
To make a classic, yeah, it takes ages
But I still do it like my mate David
Nah, I mean like my bro Dave
Me and MIST, that’s a close shave
They fear this but they won’t say, I’m the nearest on a cold day
They love to talk about the old days
Them man are old like, “Annie, are you okay?”
I prefer not to speak like I’m José
(I prefer really not to, uhm, not to speak,
If I speak I am in, in big trouble) (Woo)
This is what I meant when I said what I said
I got whips in my drive, pretty women in my bed
