The year was 2003. I was fully immersed in my academics and didn’t have much of a social life outside of the occasional College Coffee on Elon Tuesdays. Or at least that’s what I led my parents to believe.
The actual truth lies somewhere in between that tall-tale and the video for Nelly’s hugely misogynistic “Tip Drill.” I kind of feel bad for even posting it, but it’s just so over the top and outrageous it’s almost comical in a way. I mean he swipes a credit card down some girl’s backside. If you aren’t laughing at the sheer absurdity of that moment you probably don’t get me or my crude sense of humor.
More importantly it’s just a fun song to listen to. Early 2000’s hip hop was all over the place but this cut stands out for it’s party starting attributes and the stand out chant “It must be ya ass ’cause it ain’t yo face.” Come on, that’s got to crack a little smirk!
