Bumping oldies off my cellular phone
Yeah, bumping oldies off my cellular phone
A little image of sly irony: Frank is listening to old classic tracks through his cell phone, a notion that wouldn’t make sense before the age of SmartPhones.
The fact that “Oldies” is the title adds a little bit of meta as well. He could either be bumping old songs (very Frank) or bumping the song that he is currently rapping in.
Could also be a drug reference.
When spoken, it sounds like “bumping old E’s off my celluar phone’. It is often that people in a bathroom at a club will crush up pills and snort them off the back of an iPhone.
Also possibly a reference to deleting old numbers off his cell phone in order to replace them with new ones.
