Lately, when I”ve been searching the dial on my radio, I’ve been hearing a lot of this song called “Like A G6″ by a group called Far East Movement. You’ve probably heard it. Admittedly, it’s got an infectious electro beat, but holy shit are the lyrics inane.
The song is based around the simile of “feelin’ fly like a G6.”
Well, I’m clearly not in the loop because I had no idea what a G6 was. To me, G6 is a government pay grade. But that obviously ain’t fly.
So I did some searching and while I’m not positive, I’m pretty sure these guys are referring to the Gulfstream G650 airplane which apparently is some kind of big deal – enough to base a song on at least.
But that’s not even the most confusing part about this song. Just look at this couplet:
Poppin bottles in the ice, like a blizzard
When we drink we do it right gettin slizzard
What the fuck is slizzard?!! Once again, I consulted the oracles at Urban Dictionary and “slizzard” is either a term meaning extremely intoxicated or it’s referring to a “very slutty lizard.” I swear, these groups just invent terms to rhyme with the lines they already have.
Well, that’s enough yammering. Enjoy this guiltiest of pleasures (and then tell me if these guys don’t remind you of a younger Black Eyed Peas):
