As I was driving with my friend down Las Vegas Blvd, a song came on a certain station. I won’t say which one, but suffice it to say it falls somewhere between 97.4 and 97.6 FM.
Now, it is largely regarded (at least by Dave Barry fans) that Donna Summer’s version of “MacArthur Park” is the most annoying song in the world. But when I heard this song, it made me think… god DAMN this song sucks. I’m not picking on it because it’s rap; there’s a lot of rap out there that I like.
I’m picking on it for lyrics like (and I swear I’m not making this up) the ones found in Lil’ Wayne’s “Mrs. Officer”:
Doin a buck in the latest drop
I got stopped by a lady cop
Ha Ha… she got me thinking I can date a cop
Ha Ha… cause her uniform pants are so tight
She read me my rights
She put me in nah car, she cut off all the lights
She said I had the right to remain silent
Now I got her hollering sounding like a siren
I wish I was joking. But the song, whose chorus largely consists of “Wee Ooh Wee Ooh Wee,
(Like a cop car)” is not only the new theme song for misogyny, but is just freakin’ DUMB. I also submit into evidence:
I make her wear nothing but handcuffs & heels
And I beat it like a cop
Rodney King baby yeah I beat it like a cop
Remember when cop-killing was the controversial thing in rap?
I don’t think that I can take it, cause it took so long to bake it, and I’ll never have that recipe again.
