Lessons from Rap Songs
MTV recently released their “hottest MCs” of the year, so I thought I would talk about one of my favorite subjects: rap music.
My dear Sexa Lexa even calls me Gangsta Lene.
Lil Wayne taught me it will make you act crazy. It can also mean to dance in a crazy way. I guess I act pretty stupid all the time (see also, going dumb). I love going stupid.
Making up words is acceptable.
Snoop Dogg gave us “Fo Shizzle”, Hot Boys liked to talk about their jewelry as “Bling Bling” (also shout out to my middle school dance team when we danced to this song in 7th grade.) Lil Jon loves to get “crunk” and Ying Yang Twins prefer to “Twerk.” And if you're called “Phat” don't fret. It means you are cool or good looking. Not fat, like the derogatory term. Whew. I must be pretty cool.
You should be doing at least 200 shots and after that you're going to need to dive into a swimming pool full of liquor. Kendrick Lamar did it. So I can too. You also need to try something new, funky cold Medina or purple drank, the list goes on. Branch out. And if you “ain't getting drunk” you'll have to leave so just do some “Shots” with LMFAO.
And lastly and most importantly,
Make up a dance to your song. Soulja Boy introduced us to superman moves. California Swag District taught us how to “Dougie.” I can't go to a bar without doing the “Cupid Shuffle:” by none other than Cupid. And one of my personal faves: “Pop, Lock and Drop it”. It's wear I find my swag.
So thanks for the lessons. I feel like I learn more everyday.
Since this whole post is about rap I think it goes well for Whitney's New link up #backthatazzup!
