Let's see where I land, I'm like Gilligan

from Frank Ocean (Ft. Tyler The Creator) – End/Golden Girl Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Play on words, as “I land” sounds phonetically identical to “island”. “Gilligan’s Island”, was of course a popular American television show in the 1960’s.

Almost undeniably intentional, the show that Tyler references is about a shipwreck of a two-man crew (and five passengers): the song repeatedly references being either a “wreck” or “mess”, and features two artists, Frank and Tyler. Not only this, but it is about being “a boy from America […] on this island”.

The song also continually references “golden girl”, while “The Golden Girls” is a television show as well. The characters in the show are women old enough to have been fans of Gilligan’s Island when it originally aired.
