Ray J breaks down lyrics that reference him for Genius, including Kanye West’s “Highlights” and Money Bagg Yo’s “Said Sum” remix.
Ray J is one of the few people in pop culture that somehow provides us with unlimited comedy and classic moments time and time again. Sometimes, it even feels like everything in the entertainment industry is somehow connected to Ray J.
The reality star recently sat down with Genius to break down lyrics that have mentioned him over the past years. Most notoriously, Ray J’s Breakfast Club rant about Fabolous is where a majority of the references about Ray J come from. If you haven’t heard the 2011 rant, do yourself a favor and watch it below. This clip in particular launched the Breakfast Club as we know it.
I bet me and Ray J would be friends
If we ain’t love the same bitch
Yeah, he might have hit it first
Only problem is I’m rich
Ray J laughs off the lyrics, but admits he had never heard them in full and is kind of shocked by his facial expression.
“That’s what it say in the song? No, it don’t,” the 40-year-old singer says. “That was cool. That’s like he’s having a conversation. I didn’t know it said all of that.”
Further along in the video, Ray J also gives praise to the City Girls for mentioning him in their “Said Sum (Remix).” The “Sexy Can I” singer expresses his excitement to work with the Miami rap duo in the future.
“That’s what the f–k we need!” Ray J exclaims. “City Girls, please, man, let’s collab. Let’s do some technology together. I got some bags. I got some opportunities for us. That’s my wish, that City Girls make ‘em wish like Ray J. And that’s Ray J’s wish is for City Girls to come get on some of this technology with me.”
Either way, Ray J is a good sport about the references and you can hear him discuss all of them below courtesy of Genius.com.
