Also making the point that he used to be rich, but now he is “Bill Gates” rich.
Also a possible reference to the chorus of Kendrick’s Backseat Freestyle.
“so I can fuck the world for seventy-two hours.”
RHCP reference is waaaaaaay first. Just sayin.
I see where you’re coming from, macdaddyj, and it is a possibility, but I don’t think the original interpretation is at all wrong. I actually think it fits the vibe of the rest of the song a lot better. Especially in light of the second verse.
you mean “your mother”… ?
should link in “Hail Mary” and add some more details…
I don’t think it’s entirely sarcastic. If you’ve seen him live he actually emphasizes that he wants everyone to be dancing their asses off during this song. Seems like more of a fun song than a critical song to me, but I see where your coming from.
Interesting note: Captain Murphy is the name of the captain in Sealab 2021 on Adult Swim, the same channel this song was made for.
I think the lack of swearing is due to it airing on Adult Swim. Also why “fucking” is beeped out towards the end.
That’s a good call on the feeder line, but couldn’t this whole line also be interpreted a list? Meaning there are two dudes(Earl and whoever), two odd crews, kitty cats (women), a couple blunts, and a new wang feeder, which would be FlyLo? It’s a pretty cryptic line.
Then “new wang feeder” would have a double meaning since Flying Lotus is “feeding” them the beats for the track.
