In verse 1 of Astronaut In The Ocean, Masked Wolf wrote: “I believe in G-O-D. Don’t believe in T-H-O-T.”
So, what does THOT mean in Astronaut In The Ocean? And what is the real meaning behind the lyric? Let’s find out together!
What Does THOT Mean In Astronaut In The Ocean Lyrics?
In Astronaut in the Ocean, T-H-O-T is an acronym for “that hottie over there.”
According to Urban Dictionary, “thot” is a “hoe.” It is also the abbreviation of “Typical Hottie On TikTok/Twitter/Tinder/Twitch” or any social network starting with the letter T. More generally, this abbreviation indicates the woman who “use her body in some way to gain attention or some favor from males.” Such women are not loyal and trustworthy in a relationship.
Let’s take a look at the line of verse 1 in the lyrics:
She say that I’m cool (Damn straight)
I’m like, “Yeah, that’s true” (That’s true)
I believe in G-O-D (Ayy)
Don’t believe in T-H-O-T
She keep playing me dumb (Play me)
I’ma play her for fun (Uh-huh)
Now, we can grab what he means in these lines. He holds his belief in God, not in “thot.” He lives by God, not by women who try to attract and play with him.
