In what is arguably the greatest sign that trap-influenced rap is almost undecipherable, Young Thug has attempted to recite the lyrics to one of his best known hits; with hilarious results.
“Young Thug’s songs are often great. They are also often difficult to understand. Here, the rapper reads his hit Best Friend like a bedtime story—clearly, slowly, and using words you can actually comprehend,” serves as the introduction to a GQ video where the Atlanta rapper tries his hardest to make sense of his own lyrics.
While GQ would like to believe that Thugger uses words that are fit for human comprehension, what follows is a video that fails to make any of the following lyrics any more understandable:
“I’m gon’ skeet off, lil nigga come catch me, catch me
And that’s my bestie, my bestie, my best friend, go best friend
Nigga livin’ TTG and everything is still on fleek”
Let’s be honest; there’s only so much you can do with a verse that includes the word ‘fleek’. It’s around the 45 second mark where Thugger Thugger starts to have trouble reading, and I am still none the wiser as to what this song is actually about:
“Take them boys to school, swagonometry
Bitch I’m bleeding bad, like a bumble bee”
It is also slightly worrying how many times Young Thug has to refer to his handy notes to remember the lyrics to his own song:
“Eat on that coochie, lay that bitch down like “let’s do it”
No Tiger bitch, eat that wood, eat that wood
Supplier, bitch, I got pistols, no wood
I want them tacos that are Meagan Good”
On second thought, I don’t like my chances of remembering that either. Thugger definitely has enough on his plate, from public custody battles with his assortment of baby mommas, to public stoushes with Lil Wayne, Rich Homie Quan, and basically everyone else in hip-hop.
Kudos to you Young Thug, for giving hope to everyone out there that they can make it big by saying gibberish really quickly!
