Radio P*rn

Have you heard this song??? Why are these lyrics okay to play on the radio, where young boys listen? Worse yet, have you SEEN THE VIDEO??? It's entrancing. and colorful. AND DISGUSTING. Ironically, I woke up yesterday morning and couldn't get the lyrics out of my head. Why were they even IN my head? Seriously. i was singing the hook to my husband, and liking it.
I don't even watch videos. i dont even like rap. YES IT'S TRUE. I'M BLACK AND I DONT LIKE RAP. but i was not feeling well the other day and the remote stopped on one of those video channels, and this song was playing. I couldn't turn away. Did i want to see some hoochie's butt in my face? No way. But yet it was amazingly captivating. are these rap guys geniuses? or are they just irresponsible, greedy, womanizers?

Ugh. no wonder you have jobless, 19 year old black guys subconsciously acting pimpish, rolling in their escalades without a [real] clue.

That's the problem. Let me translate:

[Pharrel]
Shake your money maker
Like somebody's bout to pay ya
I see you on my radar
Don't you act like you're a faker

She...

[Luda]
You know I got it
If you wanna come get it
Stand next to this money
Like - ey ey

[Pharrel]
Shake your money maker
Like somebody's bout to pay ya
Don't worry about them haters
Keep your nose up in the air

You know I got it
If you wanna come get it
Stand next to this money
Like - ey ey



TRANSLATION:
SHAKE YOUR BUTT AS IF YOU WERE A STRIPPER GETTING PAID.
I KNOW YOU SEE ME LOOKING AT YOU, DONT PRETEND LIKE YOU DONT.
YOU KNOW I HAVE ALL THIS MONEY, COME OVER HERE, LIKE A STRIPPER
SO YOU CAN HAVE SOME. AND DONT WORRY ABOUT PEOPLE WHO DONT LIKE YOU,
KEEP YOUR NOSE IN THE AIR




[Verse 1]
Shake, shake, shake your money maker
Like you were shaking it for some paper
It took your momma 9 months to make ya
Might as well shake what your momma gave ya
You, you lookin good in them jeans
I bet you'd look even beter with me in between
I keep my mind on my money - money on my mind
But you's a hell of a distraction when you shake your behind
I got *** on my right side pourin' some cups
My whole hood is to my left and they ain't givin a f*!k
So feel free to get loose and get carried away
So by tomorrow you forgot what you where saying today
But don't forget about this feeling that I am making you get
And all the calories you burn from me making you sweat
The mile highpoints you earn when we taking my jet and
How everywhere you turn I'll be making you wet

TRANSLATION:
SHAKE SHAKE YOUR B*TT. YOU HAVE A B*TT, YOU MIGHT
AS WELL SHAKE IT.THOSE JEANS LOOK GOOD ON YOU BUT
THEY'D LOOK BETTER WITH ME IN THEM. I GOT MONEY AND ALL
MY FRIENDS SITTING HERE, BUT THEY DONT CARE, THEY ALREADY THINK
YOU'RE A SLEEZE, SO DO WHATEVER YOU WANT, BECAUSE YOU WONT REMEMBER
TOMORROW ANYWAY. OH- BUT DONT
FORGET ABOUT HOW HOT I MAKE YOU AND HOW MUCH WEIGHT YOU'LL
LOSE BECAUSE I'M GIVING YOU A S*X WORKOUT. EVERYWHERE YOU
TURN I'LL BE ALL OVER YOU MAKING YOU WET.


[Chorus]

[Verse 2]
Switch, switch, switch it from right to left
And switch it till you running right out of breath
And take a break until you ready again
And you can invite over as many friends as
You want to but I really want you and just
Be thankfull that Pharrel gave you something to bump to
Luda - I'm at the top of my game
You want my hands from your bottom to the top of your frame
And I - just wanna take a little ride on your curves
And get erotic giving your body just what it deserves and
Let me give you some swimming lessons on the p*nis
Backstroke, breaststroke, stroke of a genius
Yepp call me the renissance man get up and
I stay harder then a cinderblock man
Hey I;m just a bedroom gangster
And I've been meaning to tell that I really mus thank ya when you

TRANSLATION:
AGAIN, I'M TELLING YOU TO SHAKE YOUR B*TT, THIS TIME
UNTIL YOU'RE OUT OF BREATH. YOU CAN TAKE A BREAK, BUT
AS SOON AS YOU'RE DONE, YOU BETTER SHAKE YOUR B*TT
SOME MORE. OKAY, YOU CAN INVITE YOUR FRIENDS OVER TOO,
BUT I REALLY JUST WANT YOU,

YOU SHOULD BE GLAD I'M GIVING YOU SOMETHING TO SHAKE YOUR B*TT TO.

YOU KNOW YOU WANT ME TO TOUCH YOU ALL OVER, BUT I JUST WANT
TO HAVE S*X, AND I WILL TEACH YOU HOW, AND I'M SO VERILE AND
GREAT AND THE BEST LOVER..[INSERT FREAKY P*RN*GRAPHIC STUFF HERE].YADA YADA...
[Chorus]
[

Verse 3]
Rock rock, rock it an make it work, girl
Please don't stop it till it hurts, girl
You - you been looking a little tipsy
So if you could just shake it a little this way
See I'm a member of the BBC
The original breadwinner of DTP
You the center of attention that is distracting the squad
Cause everybody in the campus like - oh my god she can

TRANSLATION:
DONT STOP SHAKING YOUR B*TT UNTIL YOU'RE IN PAIN.
YOU LOOK LIKE YOU'RE DRUNK AND TIRED BUT I DONT CARE,
I NEED YOU TO STILL SHAKE YOUR B*TT SOME MORE OVER HERE.
ALL THE HOMIES ARE WATCHING YOU AND THINK YOU'RE SO GREAT
BECAUSE YOU KNOW HOW TO SHAKE YOUR *utt. [what an accomplishment!]

[Chorus]repeat
[Chorus]repeat.
[Pharrel]

So what do you think?

Haven't heard the song. I listen to rap, but not any of the crap that's on the radio. Content like that is exactly why. The state of hip hop is just...wow, right now. I admire the hustle and ambition of a lot of today's rappers, but the content of their music is not something I value or want my kids to value. I prefer the kind of hip hop that can be read about here.

why must you constantly point out that your "black." Black this and black that. If a white person made a blog called "That White Girl" and constantly pointed out her whiteness and others blackness, she would be called a racist.

I agree though, "black" music is pretty discouraging!

My kids are in charge of the car radio probably 70% of the time, but when this song or other crap like it comes on the radio, I change the station.

My daughter says "Daddddddd!"

Maybe I'm a little more blunt than most parents, but I was straight up and said the song was glorifying prostitution, and that I reserve the right as a parent to change the station.

I'm a little hyprocritical, because when "Peaches & Cream" by 112 comes on, I turn it up. But that's not nearly as bad... we all have to draw the line somewhere.

I never really noticed the words in this song. I don't listen to much rap either. I shouldn't be surprised at how disgusting and degrading these lyrics are. However, I am surprised that this trash is played on the radio without protests from parents. BTW, Your interpretation was hilarious. I found myself laughing out loud.

When you take the time out to make blog sites and complain to anyone that will listen, you givethe song and the lyrics power over you. it says that you gave some thug you don't even know, the power to make you feel offended. If video ho's and girls want to listen and dance to this music then ignore it. Trying to censor the music your children listen to just makes them hunger it more. If you feel that you re a good parent and they have the tools to succeed then a silly song should not concern you.. There will always be music like this. How about we start concerning ourselves with issues like poverty and teen suicide? Just a thought
