I was like Dwayne Wayne if he didn’t have Whitley
Bobby without Whitney, Stooges without Iggy
Mickey without Disney, in other words it ain’t fit me
So that lasted long as the braids on 50

from XV – Be There, Be Square Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

On the fictional television show A Different World Dwayne Wayne and Whitley were played as a married couple.

In real life Bobby Brown was married to Whitney Houston for 14 years, and they even had their own TV Show for one year. Named Being Bobby Brown it depicted their life together.

The Stooges, also known as Iggy and the stooges are a band formed by Iggy Pop, the lead singer that was famous in the late 60’s early 70’s. Reformed in 2003 and inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010 The Stooges are still famous.

After being created in 1928 by Walt Disney at Walt Disney Studios, Mickey Mouse has always been famous and has always been associated with the company.

Any of those things being split just doesn’t seem right. Neither did XV wearing versace, and since the girls still didn’t like him he cut that shit quick. Just as fast as 50 Cent got rid of those dreads he had.

And we can all be thankful for that.
