"Tripping hunnid bands and keep my hat stay low." Maybe you know what it does mean. I saw a description to the song with image, and it's sounds strange as for me. I found that hunnid bands is 100 000 dollars but i don't sure about "keep hat low", maybe it means do not attract attention? And in common if you understand this do you may to put it for me more clearly way/in another words. Don't know how translating this at all. Thanks in advance.

You're correct about the 'hunnid bands', it means $100,000 dollars (1 band = 1 thousand). To be 'tripping' (or 'trippin') has several meanings: 1. to be high 2. to be out of your mind (either crazy or out of fear) 3. to be kidding (not being serious) 4. an exaggeration of something. I think you pretty much got it though, but why would he be showing off his money and also try to not attract attention to himself at the same thing? I think here "keep my hat stay low" = my money will speak for itself, I have nothing more to say.

Thanks for explanation in any way. Sometimes english slang is driving me crazy because a lot of meanings. Have a nice day.

Where did you see this? Or what song was it?

Hi all. It seems to be a song called KiLLa Laharl by Skyline Ninja and these lyrics https://www.musixmatch.com/fr/paroles/kiLLa-Laharl/Skyline-Ninja-Free-Fl... seem unlikely. This bit sounds to me more like 'Tripping on the bends, keep my head, stay low', but I suggest putting the whole song on as a transcription request. At a glance, the previous verse's 'stay a jit for my life' is more likely to be 'stay legit for my life' (slang for 'legitimate'), for example.

Yeah after listening to the song, a couple of the lyrics that Ymdeithydd linked to, seem to be wrong to me. I am fairly certain in the 3rd line he said, "I'm countin' racks and drinkin' lemonade, got cup for my K." referring to K-cups for Keurig's coffee machines. 
Also, I agree that he said "I got a stick and to poppin', stay legit for my life."
Furthermore, I also think the artist said, "Trippin' hunnid bands, keep my head, stay low." In the very next line he talks about "icing" up his neck which is slang for fancy jewelry, so he most likely said "head," not "hat," in the previous line.  As for the meaning of this sentence... I think he means that he's "trippin for these bands" meaning he's doing everything in his power to get money, wanting money so bad that it's driving him crazy. The "keep my head" is referring to "pulling up" to whoever's block he mentioned in the lines before, and not getting killed, i.e. getting shot in the head. Someone getting shot in the head would be someone "losing his head." "Stay low" is probably a double entendre meaning to physically stay low so as to avoid bullets, and stay low in terms of infamy and fighting so he can focus on getting more money.

I hope this helps in some way. I am very sorry if the English is confusing.
