Snatched the beer can out your hand like "Gimme that!" Hahahaha jk? by Das Racist (Ft. Boi-1da)

Perhaps a comment on the indie music blogosphere habit of cliques trying to claim acts as their own before anyone else gets to them (e.g. “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell,” which received broader attention after New York music critic Matt Perpetua posted a remix of the song by Wallpaper, an Oakland-based DJ, on his “influential” mp3 blog Fluxblog.org)

They saccharine, but they not Equal! Hahahaha jk? by Das Racist (Ft. Boi-1da)

They’re “soft” or inauthentic, like saccharine sugar, and not even top-line brand, like the Equal brand sugar substitute

Also a play on the “separate but equal” American race relations paradigm from the old Plessy v. Ferguson days..

Equal is made from aspartame, not saccharine. They are “saccharine” like “Sweet and Low” (mentioned later) and therefore “not Equal”.

Call me Dwight Schrute the way that I eat beats
No beet farm, just pharm beats
Hahahaha jk? by Das Racist (Ft. Boi-1da)

On The Office, Dwight Schrute’s colleagues will occasionally visit his family’s beet farm in rural Pennsylvania… Das Racist is as enamored of beats as Dwight is with beets

To “pharm” something is to grow it synthetically or with the use of excessive antibiotic therapy, a possible ethical breach (unclear if they’re using pharm in that context here, but works with their theme of authenticity in rap)

“Pharm beats” also refers to beats that go well with taking pharmaceuticals (ie poppin' pills)

He gets the idea for this line in this video

"These zooted brown weirdos is wildin'... but they can really rap!" Hahahaha jk? by Das Racist (Ft. Boi-1da)

They seem to be at highest technical proficiency on this track, though it should have been clear from their earliest work (e.g. “Shorty Said,” which rhymed “Shorty said I look like Devendra Banhart/Shorty said I look like that dude from Japan’s art/You know, that dude who did the Kanye album cover?/Shorty said I look just like Egyptian Lover”) that they could really freestyle

The first part “zooted brown weirdos” is a reference to the zoot suits popularized by blacks during the 1920s and 30s. The long coat, high waisted pants look was originally popular in Harlem, and have come to symbolize racial tensions after the 1943 Zoot Suit Riots.

Also, a zoot is a big, conical joint. Das Racist are zooted in the sense that they smoke a lot of zoots.

My work is my play-play
Every day pay day
Hahahaha jk? by Das Racist (Ft. Boi-1da)

Like the expression “work hard play hard,” but also possibly a joke about the use of the antimetabole “We mostly work to live/Until we live to work” on Vampire Weekend’s song “Run.” The members of Das Racist occasionally riff on Vampire Weekend’s cultural appropriations: For one, VW aped the work of Brooklyn artist Aakash Nihalani in the “Cousins” video without crediting the artist, whereas Das Racist asked the artist directly to design the album cover for their first mixtape Shut Up, Dude

The members of both bands are, however, friends

I doubt this is a reference to the Vampire Weekend lyric. I think he’s just saying that he has fun doing his job, and every day therefore is rewarding, not just his paydays. This and the “live to work/work to live” idiom are cliches that were popular long before Vampire Weekend used them.

Wait a minute like Ray-J Hahahaha jk? by Das Racist (Ft. Boi-1da)

Ray-J, Brandy’s brother, had one hit: “Wait a Minute” (featuring Lil Kim)

He’s also famous for fucking the shit out of Kim Kardashian (O.J.’s lawyer’s daughter) with his enormous cock (watch!)

Sweatin' me like Sheneneh Hahahaha jk? by Das Racist (Ft. Boi-1da)

Sheneneh was Martin’s ridiculous, besotted hoodrat neighbor on Martin, and was played by Martin Lawrence himself in drag (probably the show’s most popular recurring character)

Would you brag about this girl being interested in you? No! He ain’t braggin' about Sheneneh (or even a girl who looks like Sheneneh) bein' interested in him…he’s referring to how Sheneneh used to be up in Martin and Tina’s grill all the time, even when they were just comin' home or leavin' their apartment. Bitch didn’t know when to back da fuck off….hence “sweatin' me like Sheneneh”.

Vajayjays Hahahaha jk? by Das Racist (Ft. Boi-1da)

First introduced and created by MC Paul Barman on “MTV, Get Off The Air pt. 2”, Va-jay-jay is slang for vagina. However, the term was wrongly credited to Shonda Rhimes to the creator of Grey’s Anatomy by the NY Times, then adopted by Oprah. He is saying the joke is not related to vajajays. The joke he’s referring to comes three lines before, where he says “Meet me at the mall, it’s going down.” Since ‘Going down’ is slang for cunnilingus, the purpose of the line is to clarify that although he was joking, he was not joking about cunnilingus.

An apropos Das Racist reference point, because it happens to fit into the rhyme scheme…
