What is the song “Poland” by Lil Yachty about?
The 83-second song is famous for its line, “I took the wock to Poland.” Wock is a reference to Wockhardt, a popular brand of cough syrup used in the drug lean. In the lyrics, Lil Yachty discusses “fiending” and “battling all my demons.”
According to Genius, the song is about Lil Yachty consuming wock in Poland. The track was recorded in 2021, but after a snippet leaked on Aug. 31, Yachty eventually released it exclusively on SoundCloud on Oct. 4. Today, it’s available across streaming platforms, including Spotify and Apple Music.
