Nice little reference to that horrendous Juelz Santana line…“i’m fly like an ostrich”, which is all over the forums as one of the worse lines of all time

Groupies lookin' like the Yakuza in my Jacuzzi Toxic by Childish Gambino (Ft. Danny Brown)

Yakuza are proud of their tattoos, and often show this by removing articles of clothing during festivals — Gambino got girlies half/all-naked in his hot tub

Alternatively, Gambino’s satisfying his Asian fetish by having a group of Japanese girls in his whirlpool

Furthermore the Yakuza generally cut off one of their fingers during an initiation process to show that they are committed to the life they are adopting. Gambino may be alluding the fact that the girls are missing a finger because they are fingering themselves.

Goddamn it, now that's one for the Googlers
That fell sleep on they desk and never step their noodle up
R.I.P. by Childish Gambino (Ft. Bun B)

Bun B takes a shot at the listeners, saying that if we were more curious about things and used our brains more than our computers, we’d already know what terms like “parabolic” and “brolic” mean and not have to use Google to look them up.

Maybe it’s a really sly reference to RapGenius, a site that prides itself on filling the knowledge gap?

“and never step their noodle up” may refer to those who are on the level of instant ramen and need to step up to a legit dinner, another possible aspect of a googler

Late ass nights come from long days
Doin' all the right things in the wrong ways
Doin' all the wrong shit for the right reasons
R.I.P. by Childish Gambino (Ft. Bun B)

It’s all about using your time wisely to maximize your profit

  • You can do legit work but be bad at it and end up spend more time fixing all your mistakes (resulting in a late night)
  • You can do illegal work to support yourself and loved ones, but you’ll have to start late to work covertly in the darkness (resulting in a late night)
