What Ray J’s “i Hit It First” Is Really About

See also: The Ballad of Kim Kardashian and The-Dream: A Speculative Musical “She might move on to rappers and ballplayers/ But we all know I hit it first/ I hop in the club and boppers show love/ And I don’t even put in work/ I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it first. I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it first.” These introductory lyrics to I Hit It First suggest that Ray J may have been the first (and greatest) player of the late-90’s cult-toy-darling, Bop It ! Ray J’s reliance on words like “hit,” “hop,” and “boppers,” as well as his claim that he can do it all without “even put[ting] in work” makes the Bop It thesis incredibly persuasive. Given the tactile nature of Bop It, in which one must “pull” and “twist” and “squeeze” and “bop” it, confusing Ray J’s lyrics for a song about sex is understandable but ultimately misinformed. Ray J’s repetition of “I hit it” at the end of the verse is a further shout out to Bop It and his mastery of it. He is proud of his Bop It skills and is challenging any and all listeners to challenge his prowess.

News last night. MORE: Whitney Houston Cause of Death Revealed: Accidental Drowning and Cocaine The statement continued: “Even the most minimal inquiry with anyone actually in contact with Whitney would reveal that Leolah Brown had been out of contact with Whitney for more than a year and was nowhere near the scene on the day of her death.” What ticked off Brandy ‘s little brother was the fact that Leolah told Dr. Drew Pinksy that she witnessed Ray (real name William Ray Norwood Jr.) leaving the “So Emotional” singer’s hotel room “hiding his head” on the day she died. “Why is he hiding his face?
