DA FUQ?:Snoop Dogg’s “Cock.”

Man! The stuff bloggers blog about! By the standards of this new-jack hip-hop phraseology I should preface this blog with a big fat “Pause” and “No Homo”—‘cause a man writing about another man’s “cock” certainly deserves that, but ah! If you pay attention you’ll see that you’re either too young to know what I’m talking about or old enough to remember what I’m talking about.

 

I’ve lived through the eras of the 33, 45 & 78 vinyl records on record players/turntables, the 8-track tape player, the reel to reel, the cassette, the CD and now the MP3, but I ain’t effin’ with that! 

 

So the other day I was cruisin’ in the whip bumpin’ some Snoop Doggy Dogg—his first album to be exact entitled, “Doggystyle” (circa 1993). I pride myself on knowing all the lyrics to that album, which I consider one of the Top 5 greatest hip-hop albums ever made (“The Chronic” is the greatest hip-hop album evaaar!). There is not a whack track nowhere to be found on “Doggystyle” and it’s seamlessly woven together to stand the test of time and surely devoid of a thousand features like these rappers today who don’t have enough material to complete a whole album, so they invite every semi-hot rapper “From Here to Timbuktu” to jump on a track!

 

Anywhoo…

 

I get to the track “Gin & Juice” and I’m rapping along like only a 55-year old hip-hop head can as Snoop Dogg raps, “Dre gots the bitches from the city of Compton/To serve me/not with a cherry on top/’Cause when I bust my nut/I’m raisin’ up out the cock/Don’t get upset girl/That’s just how it goes/I don’t love you hoes…”

 

Now stop the presses! Did Snoop Dogg just say, “I’m raisin’ up out the cock?” I’m pretty sure he did. In fact, I know he did! But can you imagine a rapper today talking about “raisin’ up out (or off) the cock?” You’d swear he just rapped the most suspect lyric ever! LOL. Yes! You would! 

 

Straightway, I went and did some fast-food research by way of Google to confirm Snoop’s use of the word “cock” in his song and to my surprise, these new-jack Internet folk who are supposed to give us correct information had Snoop Dogg rapping everything but “cock!” One website had Snoop Dogg rapping, “’Cause when I bust my nut/I’m raisin’ up out the cot.” The cot? A cot is a fold-up bed or a bunch of blankets & spreads on a floor that I use when all my grandchildren come over for a sleepover. Have I been rapping the wrong lyric for over 20-years? It’s plausible because I fuck up lyrics on the regular, but I was so sure Snoop said “cock.” Another website had Snoop Dogg rapping, “’Cause when I bust my nut/I’m raisin’ up out/to pop a cop.” Now wait a fucking minute! I know this lyric ain’t right! “To pop a cop?” Nah! Ice T & N.W.A. were the cop killer rappers of the era. Something is fishy up in Internet Land and I’m gonna get to the bottom of it! Have a listen and you decide whether it’s “cot,” “pop a cop” or “cock.” (3:38 mark onward)

 

 

Can I take you back in time, for a moment, to the year 1974? This is the first time a 14-year old Khalil heard the word “cock” from an older male cousin, but it was in reference to some coochie—stank-box—va-jay-jay—poonanny—pussy—vagina! Indeed, black men in the South (Miami) called a woman’s vagina “cock.” There were no “Pause” or “No Homo” moments when a dude said he just got off some “cock.” We understood quite well that he had just fucked a chick. “Cock” was pussy and that’s all there was to it! But now, I still had to dig deeper and see if Snoop Dogg actually rapped “cock” or did I just insert the word “cock” hearkening back to my teenage years. Thinking back, never in the history of “Cockdom” has a black chick ever called my hang-low penis a “cock” and I’ve been with 100’s of black women!

 

In the porn industry, “cock” has been appropriated and hijacked from the hood as an exclusive term for the male genitalia. White chicks love to call a man’s penis a cock. (It’s “dick” bitch! LOL!) But I’m sure that Snoop Dogg rapped “cock” and I’m sure that he understood “cock” to mean vagina. I’m not convinced or buying Snoop rapping about getting up off a “cot” or trying to “pop a cop.” And I don’t think these are the radio-friendly versions. In the official TV video Snoop rap’s, “I gotta hit the dope spot” (which rhymes with “cock.”), but that ain’t on the CD. Websites just got it wrong!

 

Alas! I found a website that must be ran by someone who’s familiar with black aesthetics and sure enough, according this website Snoop rapped, “’Cause when I bust my nut/I’m raisin’ up out the cock.” I knew it! I ain’t crazy after all! Snoop used the word “cock” as the old-school black guys in da hood had—in the proper context—and the proof is in the following lyrics—“Don’t get upset girl/That’s just how it goes/I don’t love you hoes…” Snoop had an orgasm in a girl’s “cock” (vagina) and she got mad when he had to leave and realized it was just sex and not love.

 

Here’s a link with the correct lyrics. Snoop Dogg – Gin And Juice (feat. Daz Dillinger) Lyrics

 

Snoop Dogg is the last generation of players/rappers that used the word “cock” as “vagina,” which tells me that he’s learned well the lessons and phraseology of the old-heads and O.G.s from Tha L.B.C. who walked around with manicured fingernails topped off with a clear coat of polish. (I still wear a clear coat of polish on my fingernails!)

 

 

So Snoop Dogg’s “cock” is a vagina and he—and I are not suspect. It is you young Negroes who just ain’t hip to the lingo of yesteryear and it is these white-washed websites who have changed and bastardized Snoop’s lyrics out of sheer ignorance and watching too much modern-day porn. “Cock” may be a dick today, but it used to mean pussy and like Snoop, I used to be up in much “cock.” Ya heard?
