Bandz Part Two: Lil Wayne

(The second in a three-part series by Jake “The Snake” Seabreeze. Go back and check out part one, if you haven’t already.)

Sorry for taking so long. I’ve been cleaning for Autumn of Austerity, been sleeping a lot in Egyptian cotton, GTA V just came out, and bars have been open at night. So I have been pretty busy. But here we go. Here’s the video, in case you need to refresh your memory.

Verse 2: Lil Wayne

(… Baby…ha ha ah… Juicy I gotchya!)
(UGH!)
Pop that pussy for a real nigga

Pull out my black card, that’s my lil’ nigga
Make a movie with your bitch, Steven Spiel nigga
Smoking on Keysh, Cole, gimme chills nigga
What’s your real name? And not your stripper name
I make it rain on ya, like a windowpane
Bands a make her dance, Tunechi make her cum
Hit-it-from-the-side-like-a-mother-fucking-bass-drum!
Two hoes on one fucking pole, two hoes on my fucking pole
I don’t tip, I pay bills, bitches call me buffalo
Her stomach in and her ass out
I’m flyer than the ones they pass out
If money grow on trees, I branched out
I’m just waiting on my bitch to cash out (Ha ha)
(…just waiting for my bitch to cash out!
Tunechi…
 Young Mula Baby)

Here we go.

(… Baby…ha ha ah… Juicy I gotchya!)
It’s a relay race and Juicy is passing the baton to Weezy. Lego!

(UGH!)
Channeling his inner Rick Ross

Pop that pussy for a real nigga
Realest rapper in the game. Behind Drizzy Drake. But in all honesty Weezy has the teardrops to prove how real he is. Plus TMZ reported him dead and he came back to life. That’s some real [expletive] shit right there. Only other rapper I’ve known to die and resurrect is Tupac.

Pull out my black card, that’s my lil’ nigga
You know you’ve made it when you got the Visa Black Card. It just drips with opulence. But this line is pretty lazy. He says he has a black card, and then three words later calls it black by using a word I am not allowed to say. Sweet synonym game.

Lil Wayne TextingMake a movie with your bitch, Steven Spielnigga
Lil Wayne straight up acknowledging he looks like E.T. (or maybe an ewok with dreads?) and is going to make an E.T. themed porno that I can only imagine would sell for like 6.5 million plus to Vivid Entertainment.

Smoking on Keysh, Cole, gimme chills nigga
Just a casual Keysha Cole reference, with some wordplay of course. So i guess he’s referring to weed here. I’ve been out of the trap life for a minute now but I remember kief, not keysh or “keesh.” And I never got cold, or “cole.” Dude must be leaning and slurring those words. Not even a great producer such Mike Will (EARDRUMMERS!) can fix his sizzurp slurs in the booth. Oh well, just chalk it up as another L in the wordplay department for me.

What’s your real name? And not your stripper name
Call it paranoia from my previous trap life or the desire to keep a veil of mystery, but I won’t tell you my full name unless I like and trust you. So I’d be downright offended if some goblin-looking little man who I just met asked me what my real name is. But that’s Weezy for you. He just wants to be intimate. He won’t munch your box unless he knows your government name. Chivalry isn’t dead.

I make it rain on ya, like a windowpane
Did he just make a double entendre here? Is he making it rain with money? Is he making it rain with bodily fluids?

Bands a make her dance, Tunechi make her cum
He’s not known as the undisputed Hip Hop Box Munching Champion for nothing.

Hit-it-from-the-side-like-a-mother-fucking-bass-drum!
Getting a look into a night in the life of a Lil Wayne groupie. Shout out to my girl Alexis Texas making a cameo during this lyric.

Two hoes on one fucking pole, two hoes on my fucking pole
I’ll let A$AP Ferg explain this line.

I don’t tip, I pay bills, bitches call me buffalo
Not a fan of this line. Seems lazy to me. So he doesn’t tip strippers, I guess he’s just got a line of credit at every strip club he goes too. And tries to use some clever wordplay play here as there is an NFL team called the Buffalo Bills. However, females will be calling him Buffalo if he keeps writing lines like this, because it’s so bad he’ll be extinct.
That joke sucked as much as this verse.

Her stomach in and her ass out
Similar to Juicy J he about that twerk life.

I’m flyer than the ones they pass out
Hit me with the wordplay bruh! He is saying is the realest/coolest/skateboard-riding/guitar-playing/lean-sippin’/women’s-leopard-print-jegging-wearing/snowboard-boot-wearing/headphones-in-inappropriate-place-wearing/siezure-havin’ bro out there. And plays that off the word flier which is what almost all strip clubs use to promote their events. Genius.

If money grow on trees, I branched out
Wordplay on wordplay in this song.  Here he is referencing the classic adage “Money doesn’t grow on trees.” Weezy doesn’t play by the rules because he is so rich he is a money growing tree. Although at 5’5, I’d argue he’s a bonzai.

I’m just waiting on my bitch to cash out (Ha ha)
(…just waiting for my bitch to cash out!
I honestly just don’t know.

Tunechi… Young Mula Baby)
When did he first start using Tunechi? Weezy is bilingual.

Two major takeaways:

  1. No cunniligus lyric? No shout out to Trukfit? I am downright offended.
  2. Wordplay. He still has flashes of brilliance with his lines “I’m flyer than the ones they pass out,” and “If money grow on trees, I branched out.” Those lines are straight fire bro! But altogether his verse is inconsistent.  He slips into metaphorical laziness with “Pull out my black card, that’s my lil nigga,” and “I don’t tip, I pay bills, bitches call me buffalo.” Those are not straight fire bro! Gone are the days where you could hear a Wayne where he is just a straight up lyrical animal and you just get obliterated with punchline after punchline throughout the entire verse without stopping to take a breath. He just mails it in throughout parts of his verse, and he must know that. However, this verse still bangs. Somewhat.
