WOMEN LICKIN LOLLIPOPS

Take Popular Song and Write about the food elements. I got the idea from Warren Balasco’s Food Studies book, “Food: the key concepts“.
I love rap music. In rap culture, a common food reference is the lollipop, a phallic representation of a penis. Women licking or sucking on lollipops is a common erotic image in rap music videos and magazines. Rapper, Lil Wayne’s song “Lollipop” is full all about this sexual metaphor. It became a successful hit because of its play on words (wrapper = rapper), a common manipulative technique used in rap music (another reason why I love rap, the linguistics). Some people might define this song as grammatically –and morally– incorrect, but I don’t look at it that way because to me it is a way people communicate; it is a culture, different from mine, that I enjoy learning about. Why is music that expresses another demography considered incorrect?

I enjoy hearing is how different cultures use different foods to describe their genitals. Mentioning a tunafish sandwich or tossing a salad might receive giggles in American culture, but doesn’t quite translate to say Latin American culture.

Lil Wanye’s song is pretty strait forward, he uses flavor principles normally associated with food to describe his Lollipop. Unwrap it, give it a taste, it is sweet and juicy, this is good, crave more. Listen to the song for yourself, and take a look at the lyrics below. What about your favorite food related songs? How do they use food? Sexually or in a different way?

Ow… Uh huh Young Mula Baby

I say he so sweet make her wanna lick the wrapper
So I let her lick the wrapper

She lick me like a lollipop [x4]

[Chorus 1 (x2):]
Shawty wanna thug
Bottles in the club

You know I like to touch your lovely lady lumps

[Verse 1: Lil Wayne]
OK, little mama had a swag like mine
She even wear her hair down her back like mine
I make her feel right when it’s wrong like lying
Man, she ain’t never had a love like mine
And man I ain’t never seen an ass like hers
And that pussy in my mouth had me loss for words
