What in the hell is this shit? "I'll take you to the candy shop"

New 50 cent single, first from his first album:

"Candy Shop"

I'll let the lyrics do the talking.

Quote:
Artist : 50 Cent
Album: 2050: Before The Massacre (2005)
Song : Candy Shop

Lyrics :


[Intro: 50 Cent]
Yeah...
Uh huh
So seductive

[Chorus: 50 Cent & Olivia]
[50 Cent]
I'll take you to the candy shop
I'll let you lick the lollypop
Go 'head girl don't you stop
Keep going 'til you hit the spot
[Olivia]
I'll take you to the candy shop
Boy one taste of what I got
I'll have you spending all you got
Keep going 'til you hit the spot

[Verse 1: 50 Cent]
You can have it your way, how do you want it
You gon' back that thing up, or should i push up on it
Temperature rising, okay, lets go to the next level
Dance floor jam packed, hot as a teakettle
I break it down for you now, baby its simple
If you be a nympho, I'll be a nympho
In the hotel, or in the back of the rental
On the beach or in the park, just whatever you into
Got the magic stick, I'm the love doctor
Have you friends teaching you 'bout how sprung I got ya
Wanna show me how you work it baby, no problem get on top
Then get your bounce around, like a little rider
I'm season's fit when it come to this shit
After you work up a sweat you can play with this stick
I'm trying to explain baby the best way I can
I melt in your mouth girl, not in your hands (ha ha)

[Chorus: 50 Cent & Olivia]
[50 Cent]
I'll take you to the candy shop
I'll let you lick the lollypop
Go 'head girl don't you stop
Keep going 'til you hit the spot
[Olivia]
I'll take you to the candy shop
Boy one taste of what I got
I'll have you spending all you got
Keep going 'til you hit the spot

[Bridge: 50 Cent & Olivia]
Girl what we do (what we do)
And where we do (and where we do)
The things we do (things we do)
Are just between me and you (oh yeah)

[Verse 2: 50 Cent]
Give it to me baby, nice and slow
Climb on top, ride like you in a rodeo
You aint never heard a sound like this before
Cause I aint never put it down like this
Soon as I come through the door, she get to pulling on my zipper
It's like it's a race who can get undressed quicker
Isn't it ironic how erotic it is to watch you in thongs
Had me thinking 'bout that ass after I'm gone
I touch the right spot at the right time
like something, i like something, she like it from behind (unsure about this line)
So seductive you should see the way she whine
Her hips so slow mo' on the floor when we grind
Long as she aint stopping, homie I aint stopping
Triple wet with sweat, man its on and popping
All my champagne campaign, bottle after bottle, its on
And we gon' sip the heavy bubble, now every bottle is gone

[Chorus: 50 Cent & Olivia]
[50 Cent]
I'll take you to the candy shop
I'll let you lick the lollypop
Go 'head girl don't you stop
Keep going 'til you hit the spot
[Olivia]
I'll take you to the candy shop
Boy one taste of what I got
I'll have you spending all you got
Keep going 'til you hit the spot

[Chorus: 50 Cent & Olivia]
[50 Cent]
I'll take you to the candy shop
I'll let you lick the lollypop
Go 'head girl don't you stop
Keep going 'til you hit the spot
[Olivia]
I'll take you to the candy shop
Boy one taste of what I got
I'll have you spending all you got
Keep going 'til you hit the spot

Do we really need to hear that on the radio?

yeah, i'm back.

at least it's slightly more creative than "It's getting hot in here, so take off all your clothes"

rule of thumb: don't listen to the radio

It's not even that I hate rap. The real thing is that I hate how everyone follows people in the rap culture and how suddenly rappers are these idols who we all have to worship and do everything like they do. And how now there are white people all around my neighberhood pretending that they grew up in the projects, walking around going 'yo' all the time, wearing t-shirts down to their knees, their had inside out and sideways, and wearing their pants down below the waist. Personally, i think that rap music sucks but if people like it, then go ahead and listen to it. I know lots of peopl who think Floyd sucks. The point is not to worship and emulate the artists to the point where it becomes less about hte music and more about he [anti]culture.

Warning: I had too much coffee!

You never heard any De La Soul or A Tribe Called Quest then, or The Streets (if that counts as rap).

But agreed, today's rap music mostly sucks.

Or Atmosphere. One of the few rappers I like, course that could be because he's from Minnesota and not some East/West coast ghetto.

Its a societal trend, it'll pass. It will be funny to see how some of the rappers today deal with growing old and crusty.

Which means you like it but don't want to admit it to yourself because you disagree with what the music is about.

I know, i sometimes do it with the crap rock i used to listen to.

Eh, you shouldn't disregard an entire genre just because of what is popular in that genre. I like electronic music but that doesn't mean I'm a big fan of C + C Music Factory.

Like what you like because you think it is good, not because of what category it gets thrown into or how popular or unpopular it happens to be.

I was in a pizza store at lunch today and they played some wacko eminem song with a bunch of kids singing in it. Quite a lot of snare drumming in that song. I proceeded to listen to Machine Head in my headphones.

Yeah you mean Toy Soldiers. Fucked up song that that's real popular with the wiggers.

So yeah I guess you could say I know my Rap. I simply open myself to all sorts of genres: acoustic, alternative, ambient, bass, classic rock, classical, club, country-western, dance, eurodance, hard rock, happy hardcore, hip-hop, house, indie, instrumental, jazz, JPop, metal, oldies, pop-rock, R&B, rap, rave, reggae, rock, samba, ska, soul, techno, top 40, trance; if it has a good beet, I'll listen to it.

This is a sig of some nature.

Ressurection!

Anyways, I was at work today, one of my coworkers was cleaning the trash out of my car when she asked me if I needed an address on the back of a reciept she found. The new guy hears this. And I quote. "ha ha, what were you doing that night? I bet you went to the candy shop."

I about start twitching and reply "Word Nigga!" Which brought on the all popular "Shit, why you gotta playa hate!"

The new guy is a 16 year old, white kid with rich parents and drives a rice burner civic with a huge system his daddy paid for.

I think we need a good ole fashioned cleansing in this town.

*sigh*

I'm sure everybody expects to go on a big rant on this issue.

I won't, it's too played out. Almost everyone who begins a discussion like this has little, if any, idea about what they are talking about.

So you found a rap song that is pointless and poorly written. Good for you. It's just as easy to find crap in any other genre. And since hip hop is so big, it just means more artists that suck making it onto the charts. It's a shame.

These upper class white kids that walk around trying to be thugs are a blessing and a curse. On one hand they equal record sales and clothing revenue, on the other hand.. well it's clear what the downside to this is.

I promised myself I wouldn't go on so i'll leave you with this.

Do not attempt to debate the revelance of a culture in which you are not a part of, or have very little understanding of. It is more often than not just stereotypes, biased opinions, or somebody talking about their distaste for said topic.

Mide as well give you the link to a reply I made on this exact topic. I'm not trying to sway you into liking hip hop. I'm just trying to paint a better picture for those who can't see how anybody could like a song like this.

Something you should read..

And a little followup

EDIT:

Sorry I just had to add this because these comments really got to me. Besides, I see it fitting in to this thread's tone, seeing as how it began with lyrics to a song.

Let me just grab some words from a song playing all over U.S. radio stations this second.

And remember, this is from rap's most legendary "thug". You know the one condemned for his lyrical content:

Quote:
Here's a message to the newborns waitin' to breathe
If you believe then you can achieve, just look at me
Against all odds though life is hard we carry on
Livin' in the projects broke, no lights on
To all the seeds that follow me, protect your essence
Born with less - but you still precious
Yes.. I can't believe the pointless shit these rappers talk about.

Dude, it's a social trend that's been going on since the 70's... So it's taking a while to pass.

If you can't/didn't get into Public Enemy, at least, then I'm sorry.

That song should be heard on the Radio cause it is music for THIS GENERATION which seems to me you are now a part of cause your too old or your just too much of a nerd.though being from Texas your probably one of those people who think country music should be on the radio 24/7

Meh, that was pretty much all my mini rant was. The point was more of the rich white kids idolizing ghetto rap when they probably havn't been within 100 miles of one. I personally think rap is stupid though, as I said above, there are a few rappers I don't mind.

Hypocritical, probably. But that is just what I think.

Have you noticed this happens every generation? Right now it's rap and hip-hop, but before that there was metal, before that was rock and roll, before that was like, jazz. I'm sure you could go back further and further, and each generation liked music that their parents thought was over-the-top garbage
The reason I bring it up, is that if the music that's on the radio now is so rediculously explicit, just like the music in the 50's and 60's must have seemed at the time, I can't imagine what sort of trash my kids are going to want to listen to 20 or 30 years down the road

Wow.. I just spent over twenty minutes writing up another long response after reading your above reply.

Then I said "fuck it", and deleted it. Why? No ammount of words can convey what I am trying to get across.

My post above along with the two posts linked in it should be enough to touch base on my views, I feel that's all I need say for now.

I could literally sit here and type for hours on end, but I feel it very unnecessary, and pointless seeing as how many would not even absorb what I could write.

If you want me to address a specific aspect you can't quite grasp, just say so, i'd be glad to give you some insight. At the very least I could have someone disliking hip hop for the right reasons rather than some misconceptions.

As for so called "wiggers", what can I say. America has a natural interest in crime. It's the same reason why many pay millions to see the latest 'mafia' flick, or tune into Cops every week.

This is no different with street crime. Except the medium that most represents this isn't cinema, it's music. Rap music. So the same people who grew up watching 'The Godfather', or 'Scarface', probably have kids listening to 50 Cent.

People seem to regard this as a color issue. Believe me it's not. People aren't buying Eminem albums because he is a thug, they're buying these albums 'cause they can identify with the artist.

I have black friends who are intrigued by some of the 'misdeeds' I get into, they love to hear stories about shit like that. How does that differ from a black rap artist talking about drug deals and robbing people? Then selling a million copies because some white kids can't get enough of it.

Don't forget black people are also walking around with their pants at their ass saying "yo' dawg what's up". So is it just wiggers, or is it just teens in general? Because I know plenty of black people who haven't done even close to half the ammount of thigs that I have done, running around acting like gangstas. A friend of mine lives in a nice upper class neighbourhood with a loving family and three little sisters. Yet he can be seen driving around in a '95, all black, mercedes with chrome rims blasting the latest gangsta rap CD on the shelves.

Anywho I have something to do so i'll leave it at that for now.

But does anybody get what i'm saying or am I just rambling on pointlessly? It'd be nice to know..

I get what you're saying, but I agree it's a waste of time for you to say the same thing so many times.
Songs like this make me uncomfortable, because hearing this on the radio is like accidently finding porn on TV (not even cable) as you flip through the stations. You can't say that this particular song is not over-the-top full of sex. There are a lot of songs like this, and I think it's rediculous.

Lol. What's worse is having someone walk in as you "accidently" find that porn.

Oh my bad. I though I had put that in there. It's almost second nature to me.

It's too late to edit the post above, but yeah I meant 2Pac.

Lol, funny thing is, the odd time I come across someone who has never heard of 2Pac, it kind of reminds me 2Pac was a rapper.

50 Cent will always be just a "rapper", Dr. Dre will always be just a "rapper"/producer.. w/e.

But 2Pac touched so many people, and made such an impact on the music industry that even people who know nothing about hip hop know who he is.

Just goes to prove what i've said in the past, 2Pac was an icon, not just a rap icon, an icon period.

We can't say the same thing for Notorious B.I.G. can we?

There's good and bad hip-hop, as with most types of music. The main problem is that because lyrical content is brought to the fore, often the people with the most "thug" attitude become popular. You just need to find the good stuff.

For the record, I think some of Tupac's music was good (not my thing, but I can see it) but he was supposedly an ass in real life, as are most "thug" characters. There you go. A few people who make good music are arseholes, unfortunately.

There is good rap though. Hell, I even like some "gangsta" rap -- in particular, I quite like the original NWA stuff, I think it has a very good edge that's been well overplayed on these days. But J5, De La Soul, Public Enemy, The Streets, Olympic Lifts, Cypress Hill, Run DMC, Beastie Boys... this isn't a genre you can marginalise so easily.

Mmmkay. Fuck. Now I've got to bitch at you for doing something which I really hate.

Lemme start of by saying this, Just because texas has a stereotype of country hicks listening to western music, it's not true.. I only know a few people who live around me who even like country music. Myself? I cannot fucking stand it.

I listen primarily to independent rock, followed by rap, signed rock, classic rock, classical orchestral, and just about everything except for country.

This is not music for "our generation". Actually, it might me. I like candy shop. It's a good song, but not at all lyrically. I'm definitely "part of this generation", I'm 15. Still, this generation seems to be full of idiotic teenagers who want to be either A.) sluts, B.) pimps, or C.) cool.

The song is just about typical of any song 50 cent does with a female in it. (see magic stick )

yeah, i'm back.

I know nothing of 2Pac, only that people sell pictures of him looking like Jesus in montages at the flea market. And I'm pretty "into" music.

Actually, 2Pac was known for being a very friendly and insightful person away from hip hop.

Many of the people who worked for him often stated this.

However, when you turned to the rap side of things, you got the evil side.

Not to mention, 2Pac had alot of real issues when he was alive, unlike most of today's rappers. You may not know this but he was shot in 1995 five times in a recording studio in an incident the police deemed a "robbery". This was just one year before he was fatally shot in Vegas.

Also a little fun fact, 2Pac originally went to school for acting and planned on being an actor, not a rapper.

Although he did still act (Poetic Justice, Juice).

Another little interesting fact. Tupac released the album "The 7 Day Theory" in 1996 under the alias 'Makaveli'. This was the album cover:



Tupac stated this image was a metaphor for the way he was crucified by the media. However, since he died shortly after, this only encouraged the many rumors that 2Pac had faked his death. (More or less that he would be ressurrected as 2Pac once again, much like how Jesus died and was reborn again..)

The big conspiracy theory is a whole other story. However, even people who are not fans of rap or hip hop would find this stuff very intriguing, it's an interesting life story no matter how you cut it.

The 7 day theory was more or less brought out speculations on anything having to do with the number seven. Like how Tupac died seven days after he was shot, (on Friday the 13th no less). And a whole bunch of other stuff I choose not to get into right now.

Anyway, I wonder if that's the image you were talking about though..

The only thing I have to say is that despite not really liking the persona it carries at times, I like rap. I come home and download random songs from random albums, trying to find some good shit that I like. If I like it, I'll go and buy the album. It's not a genre of music I know a lot about (like Country), but I'm actually interested in it. I gave country a shot, and some of it is cool, but most of it is garbage.

Also, I disagree with the "I don't want to hear that on my radio". Turn off the radio if you don't want to hear it. 50 Cent has the right to say a lot of things on the radio, and if you disagree with that ideal than you're living in the wrong country (or century).

Of course, I'm more of a fan of WuTang than 50 Cent, but they both talk about some serious shit when they're not discussing how they fucked your mother while wearing a garden gnome as a hat. The Wu has a shitload of violent songs, not just in what they'll do to you, but what has happened to them.

Plus I like the beats. My stepdad used to give me shit for "needed the beat of some drum" to survive. It's not like that. I dig music, any music that's good in my ear. I like the beats, I like the rymes, I like it all. There are some really kick ass songs out there if you get your head out of the sand long enough to listen for a bit.

I like music in general, and I dig rap music, I don't want it to go away. If 'Candy Shop" inspires some young kid that he can go out and be a success rapping about fucking bitches then more power to him. I know rap in general makes me want to find a good program to make some beats, just because I've always liked fucking around like that.

One last thing: I hate the word "wigger", simply because it stands for (to me at least) White Nigger, and that is fucking wrong. It's completely derogatory and makes you formulate an opinion about people before you even know them. "Oh, he's a wigger." No he's not. He's a fucking person. He's a dude who you might relate to if you dropped your fucking narcissistic "I'm better than him" attitude.
