‘No Mediocre’ Exegesis

I discovered this new video because it features my darling Iggy Azalea. I had no idea who T.I was, that’s how ignorant I am.

But now I know, and Knowing is the First Step.

Anyway, T.I. is somewhat controversial, but that’s due to his personal life. “No Mediocre” is just a standard rap song evidently, and yet it is so rich in poetry. Let me share some of the lyrics:

Right hand in the air
I solemnly swear
I never fuck a bitch if she don’t do her hair
No more, you won’t get no dick if there’s a bush down there
Girl I should see nothing but pussy when I look down there

Fair enough. Got it.

However, rap genius offers choices in interpreting the heartfelt couplet about dick with regard to bush.


See? He has standards. But if a bitch meet the standards, here is what will happen:

Out here trying to find someone that better than my last go
Take her to my castle
Drown her in my cash flow

Okay! Again, got it. But I like this clarification from rap genius:

“T.I. would like to find a female that looks better than his last, if that’s possible since he all he fuck is bad bitches.”

And with a net worth of around $50 million, T.I. can afford to be discriminating with his bitches, and he don’t want no bitch that will settle for mediocre either. It’s all good.

    I still have no idea who TI is. But he does seem to have very firm ideas on female grooming. Or cats possibly.

    This is brilliant. You help me to understand the angst of today’s rapper. It truly is hard out there being a pimp

  3. Suspended says:

    Fucking amateur! Doesn’t he know correct rap grammar.

    It should read — “I never fuck a bitch if she don’t get her hair did.”

    next line rewrite – “If it’s hairy down there, I need to fuck you in your armpit.”

    I’m sorry Sister Wolf, but I hate absolutely everything about the above video. There’s nothing political, socially relevant, poignant, forward thinking, or even creative about it. It’s as sexist as it gets. When people are being displaced and continue to disappear in Brazil, when 100s of thousands lack healthcare, education, and live in clapboard houses, all this fucker can talk about is shaved pussy, and no, he’s not talking about Cheney and Bush (rap genius is really, really reaching there).

    “Keep in mind when brothas start flexing the verbal skillz,

    it always reflects what’s going on politically, socially,

    and economical/y.” –Musician Davey D

    Not in the video above, unless I’m missing something so subtle, that it’s subliminal, and I need my third eye to see it.

    Do he wax? Horrible….

  6. Deena says:

    You would think that after all these years rapping he would have something more interesting to say- and be able to say it in a less amateurish way.

  7. Deena says:

    Hey. I just wrote a rap.

  8. Eek says:

    For old bag like me, what should I start with with iggy Azalea? What song is best way in?

  9. Suspended says:

    Start here, Eek.


    Iggy’s giving some Streisand realness at the 1:50 mark.
