We’ve already covered Making it Rain on them hoes like Pacman Jones. Now if Making it Rain means throwing money on strippers…what the hell is Chocolate Rain? Maybe my man Tay Zonday can explain it for me.
Is that joint a freestyle? Is he reading lyrics off of the wall in front of him? There isn’t a line that makes sense in the whole damn song. “School books say it can’t be here again”? “The prisons make you wonder where it went?” First of all, this cat sounds like a smoothed out Louis Armstrong. Then, what is that note at the beginning of the video? I move to the side to breathe? Word up Tay? Here’s the crazy thing, he only moves to the side every four verses. Is he holding his damn breath the rest of the time?
So what the hell does Chocolate Rain mean? It is a good thing that aRa Kelly didn’t make this song. Cook County prosecutors were already looking into the lyrics of “Make it Rain”, thinking that it meant that he was peeing on people as opposed to showering them with money. I guess unless it was the 1600’s and you were throwing gold…then I guess technically it would be a “golden shower”, but I digress. They would probably think Chocolate Rain is waiting until you had the bubble guts and taking a shizzle on these bizzles.
In recognition of Tay Zonday’s musical breakthrough. UvT must take a moment to recognize other great rain in history.
