The year? 2012.
The artist? 2 Chainz, a true revolutionary in that he made the world aware that he only needed two chains. He was too important to have only one chain, yet not so tacky that he needed a hundred chains. He just needed one more chain that the average man.
The song? The Birthday Song.
The important lyrics:
When I die, bury me inside that Gucci store
When I die, bury me inside that Louis store
All I want for my birthday is a big booty ho
All I want for my birthday is a big booty ho.
Crude? Certainly. Crass? Definitely. Groundbreaking? You bet.
Shakespeare? Fakespeare. Chaucer? Schmaucer. With these four lines, 2 Chainz proves to be one of the greatest bards of the English language.
3.5 READERS: But BQB! He’s just talking about material possessions and women with big butts.
Death. Ahh, the Grim Reaper eventually puts his icy hand on all over our shoulders. And so, all that Mr. Chainz asks is that when he dies, he is buried in a high end fashion store (Gucci or Louis).
He considers himself high end, a man worthy of the respect that wealthy shoppers give to luxury clothing labels. That’s how he wants to be remembered – as high end.
But he’s not dead yet. In life, and for as long as air fills his lungs, the man wants what is most important to him, namely, women with loose morals and copious derrieres. Big booty hoes make Mr. Chainz happy and he wishes to celebrate his birthday (the annual celebration of his life) by pursuing his great passion of fornicating with big booty hoes.
What the general public fails to realize is that getting the gift of a big booty ho on your birthday is a metaphor that could represent literally what is the most important pursuit in anyone’s life. When you hear Mr. Chainz say, “All I want for my birthday is a big booty ho” you should hear, “All I want for my birthday is to pursue the most important activity in my life.”
3.5 readers, what is your big booty ho? For 2 Chainz, his big booty ho actually was a big booty ho.
For me, my big booty ho is writing. All I want for my birthday is a seven figure book publishing deal. Although, to be honest, I wouldn’t turn down a big booty ho either.
What’s your big booty ho? Is it music? Art? Sports? Photography? Hiking? Tennis? Basketball? Needlepoint? Cooking? Fancy dining? Travel?
Maybe the big booty ho isn’t an activity but a dream. A goal. 2 Chainz’s goal is to get down with a big booty ho. Maybe you dream of becoming an Olympic athlete, or a broadway star, or the next start up company billionaire. Whatever it is, you must pursue and grab hold of the gigantic butt cheeks of your big booty ho before it is too late and you are left all alone, with nary a big booty ho in sight.
Whatever your personal big booty ho is, I hope you pursue it. And if you ever lose sight of your big booty ho, I hope that you will remember to keep chasing that big booty ho on your birthday. Birthdays are fun days to celebrate our life, but they also keep us humble and remind us that that clock is ticking, and there’s one less year to chase that big booty ho that is eluding us.
Tell me about your big booty ho in the comments, 3.5 readers.
