The track responds to the criticism that Mensa is a hypocrite for calling out X the alleged domestic abuse when he admitted to the choking of an ex-girlfriend in 2016 "There's a Lot".
"They say that you should not cast stones from a glass of home/around The world want to see me fall, but I am strong/tell me what is right, but they don't listen to me because my grievances of the past," Mensa spits on "Empathy".
In the course of the song's lone verse, the Roc Nation artist revealed your ex to forgive, but not forget the incident. He also takes note of their "good intentions turn into bad press."
Later, he raps, "I fucked up, admit that I fucked up/But I will not do that, so I don't judge you, but/I sound like an idiot, holding my nuts."
