|The bard of the 21st Century, Mr. Wap.|
He said, "I'm on it!" A few minutes later he called back and explained that in fact yes, Feddy Wop is a who and not a what and that the proper spelling was FETTY WAP. Mr. Wap is apparently a new musical artist of some renown and is very popular with some of the Royals players. His big hit is a little ditty titled "Trap Queen". The Crew further informed me that he had viewed the video for Trap Queen and that he needed to get off the phone and shower as a result. Before he clicked off he said, "You have to watch it." So when I got home from work, I sat down at my computer to review "Trap Queen". Here are my thoughts. (Having grown up trying to decipher Mick Jagger's lyrics, I went split screen with the Trap Queen lyrics as I was watched.)
This man is truly the bard of his generation and I was viewing his magnum opus. I believe I was listening to the Handel's Messiah of the 21st century. For those of you who haven't seen the video, I think I gleaned a few things:
- Fetty (to his friends) makes a fantastic living as a baker. He multiple times refers to making pies with his baby and having a sack to roll. I am inferring that he means a sack of flour to roll into pie dough.
- He likes money.
- He likes his stripper girlfriend
- The pie baking business is dangerous because he surrounds himself with a number of very large and scary looking individuals.
It was a very uplifting and inspiring song. So much so, that I felt compelled to up my street cred by taking Sahib Jr. to see "Straight Outta Compton" last night. I feel my pants sagging off my butt as I type.
Have a wonderful Friday and a safe weekend everyone. And PEACE OUT!
