(That shit cray, that shit cray, that shit cray)
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
Despite HEAVY traffic on Twitter about some British crime lords named Kray, it’s quite apparent from Jay’s pronunciation of “crazy” in his verse (and the spelling in the lyric book) that “cray” is just a truncated version of the word “crazy”.
During a recent live performance at a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Jay clearly says “crazy” where the hook says “cray”, thus ending the debate.
Still think it’s spelled “Kray”? Would Yeezy, as grand as his shows are, actually let the Throne’s set designers misspell the word? Y'all really need to stop listening to random hoes on Tumblr…
As for the origin of this controversial phrase, we need look no further than a fairly recent song by the artist Kanye cites as inspiration when interviewed.
Is it a coincidence that “Th(at) shit cray” appeared in “Lose My Mind” some time before this song’s release, and Kanye wanted to bring to mind “Jeezy in Paris”?
Nope, probably not…
