Texts said, "I'm wet"; I said, "Hold up, wait up a minute"
H2O plus my D, that's my hood, I'm living in it

from Childish Gambino – Life: the biggest troll [andrew auernheimer] Lyrics on Rap Genius


“Hold up wait, wait up a minute” is extremely similar to his line off “3005”.

A couple of lines by Gambino, that when put together make for a great punchline…the only problem is that when looked at critically, what he in fact said was inaccurate.

The girl he’s speaking to through text messages said she is “wet,” which means she is horny and her vagina is literally wet. Gambino tells her to wait so he can figure something out (give her his D).

Relating being wet to water, the chemical makeup for a water molecule is H2O.

First off, let’s look at what Gambino meant:

Gambino says H2O as in H and two O’s, which together with his D (chemical symbol for the element Dick) spells the word HOOD. The hood he is living in, while the punchline refers to girl’s vagina, could also mean the hood of the clitoris.

Your hood is also your home. And wet pussy and his D are not strange bedfellows.

Now, here’s the chemically correct debunking of these couple of lines:

With her wet vagina plus his dick, he thinks it spells the word “hood.” What Gambino either fails to realize, or keeps on saying to force the punchline to those who may or may not understand this, is that water molecules are made of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. If the letters used to symbolize these elements were added to the letter D, then it would come out actually as:


…not the word “Hood.”


This isn’t the first semantically questionable lyric on the album.
