Don’t take stable people or situations in your life for granted.
On his 2002 album, Just Tryin Ta Live Devin dropped the gem, “Fa Sho” featuring Odd Squad. On the surface, it’s simply a song about a sneaky woman getting over on a man who strayed, and the importance of remaining loyal to your woman at home. Translation: stop screwing around on your woman because you might get burnt.
But this is Devin we’re talking about, so let’s dig a little deeper.
“F-ckin over ya fo sho p---y tryin’ ta get some more p---y. You’ll end up with no p---y.”
In other words, don’t stray from what’s real, looking for greener grass on the other side because chances are—it ain’t greener. In fact, it’s probably only green in patches while the rest of the grass is that ugly yellow-brownish color that’ll get you ticketed by the homeowner’s association in the summer. Beyond relationship advice, the song can actually be applied to anything in your life that’s stable--people, things, situations. Be wise in your decision to move aggressively in another direction and always be aware of not taking things for granted, because chances are, you’ll end up lonely and sad.
“Me and my gal, we been apart for a while/Yeah, I miss her kiss and I kinda miss her smile. But I'm the one who f---ed up/ Walkin' round with a big head…”
Oh, poor, lonely Devin. Don’t let that be you— takin’ your "fa sho" for granted, because you’ll probably end up with nothing.
