The Kardashians are famous for...well, being famous. Actually, their claim to fame was a leaked sex tape starring Kim Kardashian and Ray J, which was made in 2003 and leaked in 2007. As Paris Hilton's BFF at the time, Kim's socialite status was on the rise when the tape got out, and the people started talking. Just who is this video vixen? Inquiring minds (perverts) wanted to know. Kim and the rest of her "modern-day Brady Bunch" family then starred in their own show on E! called Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which proved Kim had a solid family life with no significant daddy issues. The show lead up to spin offs like Kourtney and Khloe take Miami, and who the fuck knows where else, (ok I do, it's New York) to clothing lines, makeup and a slew of other products creating a bajillion dollar empire. But what about the young lad from the infamous sexual video? WHAT ABOUT RAY!?
Ray J has been in the studio (he's a singer/ rapper) for the past decade and I really only recall his major hit being "Sexy Can I" back in the great '08. So what do you do when your career isn't skyrocketing and your ex girl is laughing all the way to the bank? Make a song 10 years later about your sexcapades and get the people goin'. That's what you do.
Ray J's new anticipated (?) single "I Hit it First" CLEARLY is about Kim. It's not even remotely subtle. Even though he took to twitter to make this statement: "It's a song, it's not about that, it's about a concept." TOTALLY RAY. I'm sure it's not about that. C'mon. Proof:
"She might move on to rappers and ballplayers
But we all know I hit it first
I hop in the club and boppers show love, and I don’t even put in work
I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it first
I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it first"
As always, Ray provides so much insight, a true lyrical genius.
It's pretty sad that your career is that stagnant that you have to make a song about a girl you boned 10 years ago BUT I think from a marketing perspective its amazing because A) it gets mad publicity. I saw the cover art circulating Facebook earlier this week, people are definitely talking. B) Kim's 5 months pregnant with one of hip hop's most prominent artists, Kanye West's child. How will he react? C) HE HIT IT FIRST!
I think Kanye will react (if at all) in a real sly manner, probably think of some unreal line in a song, a real dagger ya know. Ray might not even catch it it might be so slick. I mean Kanye sang, "My girl a supastar all from a home movie" in his latest hit Clique so who knows what his reaction will be. I do think Kanye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was an actually pretty poetic album and had some deeper content then oh say, "I had her head going north and her a** going south, but now baby chose to go West" -Ray J. Yea, probably you broke up like a decade ago. Also, real original with the compass line.
Never the less, I think it's an actually catchy beat that I want bumping when I'm out. I can see this doing pretty well considering the nature of the song and who it's about. Don't be surprised when you hear some preteens singin this in the hallways at school. This is the sick kinda world were livin in but what can ya do. And in case you forgot, RAY J HIT IT FIRST!!
