Shuffle Song Of The Day (8/2/22): “Not Give A Fuck” By Fabolous

“Not Give A Fuck” is a song by the Brooklyn rapper Fabolous, and it appeared as the opening track on his second album, Street Dreams, which was released in 2003

Structurally, this is a pretty typical Fabolous song. What I mean by that is it’s filled with plenty of punch lines over a great beat. That’s the Fabolous formula right there, and he has it down to a science

I really wish rap and hip-hop would get back to this sort of sound, but seeing as modern “rappers” are more concerned with popping Xanax and wearing their little sister’s clothes, I highly doubt that’s gonna happen

While on the topic of fashion, lets talk about how ridiculous, yet awesome, rappers in the early 2000s used to dress. The baggy pants, the oversized t-shirts, the lopsided hats that were barely on their heads. So goddamn classic. I mean, just look at Fabolous on this album cover. He’s wearing a giant purple fur coat that kinda looks like something Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmations would wear. This is going to be a depressing realization, but that coat he’s wearing probably costs more money than I’ve made in the last 6 months at work, and I’m sure most of you are in the same boat

Even though I do love this song and Fabolous in general, I do have some beef with how he spells his name. Substituting U with an O lead to me constantly spelling the word fabulous wrong in middle school. As a matter of fact, it still trips me up to this day. You can’t teach an old dog new tricks I guess

LYRICS

I’m somethin’ like a phenomenon,
But still dumpin’ whenever the drama’s on,
Y’all hustlers can’t eat fit meals,
And it feels somethin’ like when it’s Ramadan,
Hope you chumps been walkin’ with armor on,
Somethin’s turnin’ his momma on,
I love to see rumps in Farragama thongs
Bet it look plump when you got pajama’s on,
Jump in, let’s hit the Bahama’s ma’,
And it’s crunk whenever I’m on the song,
Bumpin’ like “Bumb-ba-Bump, ”
I’m particularly picky,
When it comes to licky licky,
Have ’em slidin’ off them Vickie’s quickly,
Under the doo-rag thick three sixty,
It’s the hypno and sticky icky,
I said Okay!
I’m fly enough, to do better,
But pimp enough to not give a fuck,
And I’m thug enough, to do better,
And gangsta enough to not give a fuck,
I’m hustlin’ enough, to know better,
But ballin’ enough to not give a fuck,
And I’m, old enough, to know better,
But young enough to not give a fuck
D-d-d-d-dammit man,
I’m in a throwback so old,
It’ll make your grandma glance,
And everybody know, everybody go,
So please, call the stretch ambulance,
These dudes don’t stand a chance,
When I pull up like the pamper brand,
Those in the Lambo slants,
With a madame from France,
With a ass so big,
You couldn’t hide it in hammer pants,
Who else be in New York,
With Miami tans,
Got everybody doin’ the street family dance,
I’m sure this hammer can,
Make you save that gangsta role for the camera man,
F-A-B, you preferably,
Don’t wanna F wit me,
Please believe it,
I’m definitely, as responsible,
For gettin’ the City High as ‘Clef would be,
Believe it please
I’m fly enough, to do better,
But pimp enough to not give a fuck,
And I’m thug enough, to do better,
And gangsta enough to not give a fuck,
I’m hustlin’ enough, to know better,
But ballin’ enough to not give a fuck,
And I’m, old enough, to know better,
But young enough to not give a fuck
I’m introduced to your women friends,
‘Cause I buy double deuces to rent a Benz,
Like they boots made by Timbaland,
I have to remind, since I got drafted and signed,
Y’all playa’s get used to the scrimagin’
Not one of the Jesus’s got lemon gems?
Y’all lips get loose like y’all feminine,
I prove letting loose but the semi can boost my adrenaline,
You never had no use with that lem again,
Half my roots is Dominican,
Faboloso mi gusto Le bengamins,
This dude got the juice of a pimp in him,
Turn to stones like Medusa got a glimpse of them,
But right now you can lie and gossip too,
And later be the guy the dude spoke to,
And right now you can try to prosecute,
But later in you goin’ die in the hospital
I’m fly enough, to do better,
But pimp enough to not give a fuck,
And I’m thug enough, to do better,
And gangsta enough to not give a fuck,
I’m hustlin’ enough, to know better,
But ballin’ enough to not give a fuck,
And I’m, old enough, to know better,
But young enough to not give a fuck
