Following this conversation, Boyd solidifies his confidence in Fase Yoda by preaching that he will be a star, then follows up by asking what the meaning behind the lyrics of “Messed Up.” Yoda explains that “Messed Up” is his favorite song to date because it is about an ex-girlfriend who changed his whole life in the best way possible. To Boyd’s surprise, Yoda says that he was anti-tattoo while he was dating her. It wasn’t until after the breakup that Yoda began to change his life for the better, getting meaningful ink tattooed on him and working out. Yoda describes that he began writing the song over two years ago but never finished it, only writing the first verse. He later came back to it and knew it would fit perfectly with what he’s currently working on in his career.
Mike Boyd then shifts the conversation to ask about being around Young Thug. Next, Boyd asks if there is anything that stood out to Yoda that Thugger told him. Yoda quickly says that he’s dropped a lot of big gems that have motivated him and wanted to ask him what the most prominent accomplishment he’s made that’s made him happy. Yoda continues by saying that thug responded, “I make millionaires,” which is referencing the artists and teams he’s championed along the way.
Boyd further asks about Yoda’s inspiration for fashion.
