"Figure It Out" comes from French's new mixtape Wave Gods, which DJ Khaled birthed into the world on Friday night via his We the Best Radio show on Apple Music.

On French's part, the line "Why Cosby slipped her?" comes up in the middle of a verse about regrets and paranoia. Nas is rapping from chandelier-fitted rooms about feeling "delirious to take life serious" and all the hectic shit going on around him.
