The return of 6ix9ine has fans asking what does gooba mean? The song title has raised some eyebrows, so let’s take a look…

There are some celebrities that you would recognise from a mile off and it’s safe to say that Daniel Hernandez is one of them.

Known professionally as 6ix9ine, the 24-year-old American rapper is easily recognisable for this multi-coloured hair and, well, the fact that he has a “69” tattoo on his face.

In 2018, he was arrested on numerous charges and was given a couple of years in prison. Now, he has been given early release and, of course, he’s back at it again making music for his fans.

6ix9ine: What does gooba mean?

Considering 6ix9ine chose this as the title, it must have some significance. Right?

Well, according to the top definition on Urban Dictionary, gooba means: “An expression of confusion and love. Said to friends when there is nothing else to say but ‘I have no idea what’s going on but I enjoy your company regardless’.”

However, we suspect that the rapper’s use of the word conforms to the second definition displayed on the site, which reads:

“A very clumsy person or referring to anyone who has done something stupid and makes themselves look that way.”

6ix9ine: ‘GOOBA’ lyrics

We feel that the song title matches the second definition because of the lyrical content.

In the first verse, he raps: “Are you dumb, stupid, or dumb, huh? Play me like a dummy, like b**ch, are you dumb? Are you dumb, stupid, or dumb, huh?”

Many of the lyrics are defensive and appear to directly combat those against him. So, we’d guess he’s calling all his haters goobas, essentially.

Throughout the song there are a number of lyrics that are sure to offend some, with certain examples like “they sick, been hot way before Coronavirus” and “tell me how I ratted, came home to a big bag.”
