If that beat is giving you weird, early-2000’s nostalgia, that’s because it’s a sample from 50 Cent’s “Get In My Car” from his album The Massacre which was released in 2005. If you remember correctly, the hook for this timeless classic was “Bitch, get in my car,” a pickup line that is sure to work 60% of the time, every time. Such a gentleman that 50 Cent.
I think I like the Migos/Youngboy song better, though. For one, because I just straight up like the beat better, and for two, because the hook isn’t super creepy and misogynistic. Granted, the 50 Cent song came out 15 years ago, it was a different time, yada yada yada. But also, I just don’t really like 50 Cent as a person. He kind of comes off the type of person who would eat you lunch out of the office fridge and then lie to your face about it. I don’t know him personally, obviously, but from what I see on the Internetz, he doesn’t seem like the most trustworthy person of all time.
And if you’re also getting weird, mid 1990’s nostalgia from seeing Offset act a fool with crazy hair and a military grade missile, that’s because he is parodying a character from the classic movie Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, which is a parody in itself. The character, played by Marlon Wayans, is aptly named Loc Dog and is fondly remembered for his “Do we have a problem?” scene.
Anyway, Migos say they have an album on the way later this year while Youngboy NBA has confirmed a new album dropping on the 19th anniversary of 9/11 to show his support for the troops.
