If you haven’t heard of up-and-coming Memphis rapper, P-Nut, maybe it’s time you did. Already taking the southern hip-hop world by storm, P to the Nut’s cache rose even further after a recent appearance on his local Fox affiliate. If you doubt his prowess, check out one of his dope rhymes, below:
Superman’s no hero/They never found Nemo/Can’t play with Tonka trucks ’cause all the Tonka trucks got repo’d.
You can watch his adorably crunk interview above, but if you want the crib notes, I’ve excerpted four of his choicer quotes:
- I’m gettin’ ready to spit somethin’ for y’all. Y’all ready?
- It feels good because I’m lettin’ all the steam that I have come out. [Editor’s note: elementary schoolers have steam?]
- It’s just me goin’ out there. Doin’ what I got to do over and over again to make the fans see what I can do.
- I tell ’em, stay in school, pay attention to your teacher, your mother. And if you’re tryin’ to do the same thing, and if you can’t do it, just do what I told you to do and then you’ll make it there.
Now pretend for a minute that you have no idea how old this kid is and ask yourself the following question: If I saw these quotes out of context, would I assume they were spoken by an aspiring seven-year-old rapper, or an established hip-hop superstar? And more importantly, does the fact that it’s impossible to tell one way or another say more about P-Nut the wunderkind or established hip-hop superstars? I guess there’s a reason why rappers are always spelling things in their songs — they’re just trying to self-educate.
- La-da-da-da-dahh/It’s the motherfuckin D-O-double-G (SNOOP DOGG!)/La-da-da-da-dahh/You know I’m mobbin with the D-R-E
- I’m on the parkway see me at the Knick game/Probably seen this tatted on your chick frame/F-A-B-O-L-O-U-S
- I don’t know what you heard about me/But a bitch can’t get a dollar outta me/No Cadillac, no perms, you can’t see/That I’m a motherfuckin’ P-I-M-P
- T to the A to the S-T-E-Y* girl you tasty, T to the A to the S-T-E-Y girl you tasty/D to the E to the L-I-C-I-O-U-S, to the D to the E to the, to the, to the, hit it Fergie
* And this is why they should keep practicing. There’s no “e” in “tasty,” professor Will.I.Am — and for that matter, didn’t anyone ever teach you that the direct object should always follow the subject and verb in a sentence? Why not try calling yourself “I.Am.Will” to set a good example for the rest of the rap community? You’re not Yoda, my friend. Hell, you’re not even my friend!
