I want to make one thing clear: I don’t give two flying fucks about no song other than “Ready To Learn” aka the “Pussy Song” by Brian McKnight, b. I don’t care what you say or how you saying it, this shit is dope. Not only can the dude sing but that shit is catchy as hell. However, it seems that some people in this Hip-Hop culture are angry at this song and I don’t understand why. Blogs, radio hosts, journalists (I use that term loosely), rappers, they’re all mad at Brian McKnight for daring to make a song that is so “vulgar.” Are you fucking kidding me?? Ya’ll can’t be serious. Nah, really though, ya’ll joking right? When did Hip-Hop become so concerned with nasty lyrics, fam? When did Hip-Hop become troubled that some lyrics are tasteless and crass? When did you start to care about content b, when?
The music I choose to listen to can at times be considered offensive to women, Negroes, the elderly, Asians, homosexuals and more. No matter how crude the lyrics may have been, I have never heard that “so & so” MC should not be rapping that shit BECAUSE the lyrics are indecent or offensive. As a matter of fact the most lewd rap songs are some of the culture’s favorites. Fam, go to the club, any Hip-Hop club and put on “Bitches Ain’t Shit” or “Ain’t No Nigga” or “Put It In Your Mouth” and you tell me who the hell is offended and not dancing in protest. Put on “My Neck, My Back” and see the dance floor full of chicks going crazy, loving and signing every word, loudly. Go to the club tonight and tell me who is disgusted when “I Beat The Pussy Up” comes on. Point them out to me because I wanna talk to ‘em. How are you upset at “Ready To Learn” when faced with the undeniable truth that Hip-Hop has never cared about racy lyrics?
It seems that there are two things going on here. I think that Hip-Hop is offended because some believe Brian McKnight is too old to be making songs about pussies, sex & squirting. This is part of Hip-Hop’s greater struggle with age and youth. It’s a battle that has always been fought; the battle of the generations or eras. To those who think that he’s too old for this, do you believe that when you’re 45 or 50, that you ain’t gonna be doing all the nasty shit been doing the previous 25 years? You think that when you’re 55 you ain’t gonna be talking about the freak, dirty shit you want to be doing? Fuck outta here fam, it don’t stop b, it can’t stop.
Then we have those that think McKnight is too classy and respected to be singing such low brow music. If that’s you, I have one question: do you own a Brian McKnight album from this century, b? No? Then shut the fuck up with your outrage. If you didn’t support his previous efforts, what the fuck do you care about this new direction he’s taken? Hip-Hop dances to tunes sung by bare-chested men who CAN’T EVEN SING but some of you Negroes are up in arms that McKnight is singing a nasty ass song. You motherfuckers are just full of shit.
Hip-Hop has really disappointed me with this whole thing man. I’m saddened that some in the culture are looking to censor the kind of music that an artist does. We listen and celebrate ignorant rap, cocaine rap, pimp rap, weed rap, some even condone white people saying “nigga” in their raps but Brian McKnight singing about squirting pussies (I love saying that BTW) naaahhh, now that’s just way too much!! Drawing the line at “Ready To Learn” amid all the fuckery passing as music these day is hilarious. Who are you trying to fool by being outraged at these nasty lyrics? Who you trying to impress tho’? You guys kill me, ya’ll really do. Now excuse me ‘cause B.I.G.’s “Nasty Boy” just came on and I gotta get my dance on.
