In the first verse, Cro praises his rapping skills by comparing himself to Jay-Z and saying that he creates his instrumentals himself.

In the end, he does leave her and is happy that she is no longer there.
In the lyrics, the word "easy" appears at the end of each verse, with a word that is based on it. For example, the words AC/DC and the phrase "erschieß sie" become "AC/D-Easy" and "ersch-Easy." The song does not have an actual chorus.
The music video for "Easy" was directed by Harris Hodovic and premiered on YouTube on November 23, 2011.

The location then moves outside, where the woman continues to rap while in a skatepark/riding a bike. As of January 2013, the video has been viewed 32 million times on YouTube.
