The artist behind, Oh Let’s Do It, sat down with The Source and talked about KNOWING that he doesn’t have lyrics. He doesn’t see the point of it, he talks about “making his own lane” and just here to “get the party started, then leave”.
“I’m like ‘Kid ‘n’ Play’. I come to get your party started. I don’t come to make you laugh. That’s what the rappers are for. I’m a party starter. That’s it! If the party is dead, I’m going to come hype it up and then leave.”
“I stay natural. I’m a mood record. Whatever mood I’m in then that’s what I rap about.”
“I literally have too much sh** to do. Seriously! I got a CEO who’s locked up (interview obviously done before Gucci was released), I got a label to hold down. I got bills, brothers, families, friends that need me.”
“You can look lame as hell because when you flex like you can rap, they are going to put your ass on the spot. Radio stations or anywhere. Any freestyle you do. You are going to be looking lame. When you know I don’t have any lyrics, you ain’t even going to ask me for no freestyle. It is what it is! Who didn’t grow up listening to punch lines? C’mon now! Why would I knock you.”
“I think if I do a song like ‘Oh, Let’s Do It’ then I start rappin’ hard on punch lines, I’ma fade away because it’s niggas super harder than me. Now, I’m gonna fall back in their lane? When I can go and make me my own lane? That’s like saying, I can take the short cut to work instead of the highway because there’s just jammed up traffic and it’s during rush hour. Why would I go through rush hour when I can go the back way and save 10 minutes out of the day?”
The dude kinda has a point.
Do you think that’s a smart business move or just killing music?
