Fear not. I’m not about to go on a Hip-Hop/lyricism/commercialism rant, I could care less about all that. While I’m the individual that prefers creativity I also like to, as they say, “get ignorant” quite often. Big Sean is one of those artists who just wants to make music for the sake of making music and doesn’t care about the message behind it, as long as he’s having fun. It’s why dude can get away with making a song called “Ass” where the titular word is repeated over and over again in the chorus and none of us have a problem with it. At all.
So I’m sure most of you have heard “Mercy” by now, the new Kanye track with the GOOD Music Cast and 2 Chainz/Titty Boi, of course Young Vertically Challenged leads it off and as usual he can’t help but jump on those puns.
Drop it to the floor, make that ass shake
Whoa, make the ground move, that’s an ass quake
Built a house up on that ass, that’s an ass state
Roll my weed on it, that’s an ass tray
I really want to know what inspired him to write these compelling lyrics, dude had to be higher than ODB, Whitney, Wiz and Snoop COMBINED when he thought of that enticing paragraphs. Now again, I’m not looking for lyrics in a song like this, but I literally had to power off the stereo in my car when he said “built a house up on that ass, that’s an ass state”.
Young man. There’s a reason why rappers haven’t strung together puns made up of references to the posterior back to back to back to back since Sir Mix A Lot thought it would be cool to make white women aware of the fact that having a voluptuous (yeah, I said it, sue me later bruh) posterior was a positive. And I would hope that we keep it that way. I would let it go if it weren’t for the fact that he always does this. The terrible, terrible pun, it’s like he can’t write a verse without taking a random inappropriate word and deciding to deem it a prefix whether the American public likes it or not. Big Sean does not care that “Ass” is not a prefix, he’s going to make it one and there’s nothing we can do about it.
