You Pushing ๐Ÿ…ฟ?

If you’re on social media, at least partially, you’ve likely seen the ๐Ÿ…ฟ whether it’s on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.

Gunna has a song on his latest album, DS4EVER, titled “Pushing ๐Ÿ…ฟ,” where the term was introduced to the internet. So what does it mean? It’s pretty straightforward and complicated at the same time. Something is either ๐Ÿ…ฟ or it’s not. That’s the simple part. But, what in the world is ๐Ÿ…ฟ? It’s a saying thatโ€™s been used in places like the Bay Area and Texas for years. It doesn’t have a finite definition. To keep it easy, it’s similar to the term “valid,” either something is valid or it’s not, right? Do yourself a favor and listen to Gunna, the creator of this term.

Luckily, for everyone who still doesn’t understand, Gunna, in the recent weeks since his album release, actually explained the term.

In an interview with The Breakfast Club, Gunna used the word as a substitute for the word “player” but explained it’s fairly flexible. Last week, on an IG live he explained, “F-ing your partner’s main bitch ain’t P. If you hold the door for a lady, that’s P. Arguing with your partner about money ain’t P. We ain’t doing that. We’re pushing P.”

When many heard him use the word to be an alternative to being a player, they assumed it was a negative term but, it’s not. To push ๐Ÿ…ฟ is a positive term, and he cleared up all the nuances of the phrase, clarifying, “P doesn’t just mean player. P means paper, too. You can be pushing this P with paper.”

The rapper also talked about kicking ๐Ÿ…ฟ. Don’t worry, this isn’t complicated at all. He explained that saying, “If you’re in this s– and it’s rented, then you’re kicking P. But if you buy this shit and you own it, then you’re REALLY pushing P. You’re spending your hard-earned money. Like, you’re pushing it. You’re standing on this shit. You’re spending millions on it. You’re pushing it.” Subjective examples but, simple right?

In summary, pushing ๐Ÿ…ฟ is denoted as a good thing so, you should want to push ๐Ÿ…ฟ. Kicking ๐Ÿ…ฟ means the complete opposite. You should never kick ๐Ÿ…ฟ.
