“Bust down, Thotiana (Bust down, Thotiana). I wanna see you bust down (Over). Pick it up, now break that sh** down (Break it down).” – Blueface
“So my inspiration for this. Basically, I had just left the hood, I just ran three fades back to back and pure off respect, ya feel me, n***as, sayin’ this or sayin’ that, so I just ran three different n***as back to back just off respect really. So, once I did that I kind of felt a little accomplished. I didn’t have no marks or nothin’ on my face so I didn’t look like I ran three fades. So, it was more just like an aggressionist side of me just came out into the mic.” – Blueface
“Everybody says I’m offbeat. I wrote that motherfucking song to the beat. But I wouldn’t have had “Thotiana” if I didn’t hear the beat first. So what really inspired that was thots, sl**s, wh**es.” – Blueface

“I’m not going to say I started the word. The word Thotiana has been around as long as the word thot has been around. It was just catchy. It was just different. I hadn’t heard anybody use it in that term. I’m really a genius bro, sometimes I just think of this shit on accident.” – Blueface
