In this context, it means "there is trouble." The phrase is used to refer to a situation where things don't go as planned, the truth about something/someone has been revealed or simply one where the worst has happened. In a sense, it's used to show realization. Here, Shallipopi describes a scenario in which he's smoking with his friends (presumably) and after passing the blunt to one, it's not passed back to him. To him, that signifies that there is definitely trouble.  </div></div><br/><input type="checkbox" id=toggle7><label for=toggle7><span class="annotate-lyric"> Put your girl on phone<br/>Twelve o'clock for night <br/></span></label><div id=content7 class="annotate-explain"><div class="annotate-text"> Shallipopi speaks to someone's girlfriend at 12am. </div></div><input type="checkbox" id=toggle8><label for=toggle8><span class="annotate-lyric"> 12:30 use bolt no flight<br/>She locate my location <br/></span></label><div id=content8 class="annotate-explain"><div class="annotate-text"> She used a Bolt (a popular ride-hailing application) not a flight.

It used to be regarded as a planet but that changed because it has not yet cleared other objects from its neighbouring region so it  still has lots of asteroids and space rocks along its flight path instead of absorbing them over time, like the larger planets have done. Shallipopi usually refers to himself as the king of Pluto. In a sense, Pluto is his personal musical universe and that's why his fans are called "plutomanians" </div></div><br/><input type="checkbox" id=toggle10><label for=toggle10><span class="annotate-lyric"> Sensational, abobi condition am, ehn <br/></span></label><div id=content10 class="annotate-explain"><div class="annotate-text"> "Abobi" is a popular slang that originated in the South-South region of Nigeria (Rivers State, to be precise).
