Rap Lyrics Translated for White People: Volume 5

Grillz LyricsIt’s been too long since I’ve done this. I know many of you have probably been waiting for a new version of Rap Lyrics Translated for White People. Well, good things come to those who wait. This time around, I’ve picked out five of those most ridiculous rap songs ever written and translated them so white people can make sense of them. As always, there are some helpful footnotes as well.

Nelly feat. Paul Wall-Grillz
Got 30 down at the bottom, 30 mo at the top
All invisible set wit little ice cube blocks
If I could call it a drink, call it a smile on da rocks
If I could call out a price, lets say I call out a lot
I got like platinum and white gold, traditional gold
I’m changin grillz errday, like Jay change clothes [1],
I might be grilled out nicely (oh) In my white tee (oh),
Or on South Beach (oh) in my wife b.
V V and studded you can tell when they cut it
see my granmama hate it, but my lil mama love it

White Translation
I have a set of gold/ platinum encasings that I cover my teeth with. I have 30 on the bottom and 30 on the top
They have diamonds in them
My diamonds shine when I smile
They are expensive
I have many different types of precious metals on these grills
I put different ones on every day. Which is a lot.
I could be wearing these grills with a plain white t-shirt
Or I could be wearing them in Miami with a tank-top undershirt. I haven’t decided yet.
My grandmother does not approve but the girl I am currently having sexual relations with likes them.

Birdman-Get Your Shine On
Loud pipes and big rims, n-gga that’s my life
Come through the neighborhood with my homeboy price
Lets get it understood, n-gga thats my price
Come through the neck of the woods, you be alright
Cause I’m pimpin, I’m pimpin pimpin, I’m comin thru
And I’m dippin, I’m dippin dippin, them 22s
And they spinnin, they spinnin spinnin, them sprewells [2] n-gga
them sprewells n-gga, we makin mill n-gga

White Translation
My life revolves around loud music and big rims on my car
Don’t mess with my rims and you’ll be fine
Because I’m really, really cool and awesome.
I’m driving through your neighborhood
My car is very low to the ground and my tires have 22-inch rims
These rims are really cool. They keep spinning even when the car comes to a stop.
I love these types of rims. We are making millions of dollars from this rap music, friend.

Air Force OnesNelly, featuring Kyjuan, Ali, and Murphy Lee- Air Force Ones [3]
I like the limited edition, the khaki and army green
Patent leather pin stripe, you should see how I do the strings
Size twelve with the strap, red and white with a Cardinal cap
All flavors, well it just depend on when and where I am at

We up in Footlocker, I’m looking like I need those
Ten and a half and if you got em give me two of those
I can tell she never seen Murphy Lee before
cause she’s just standing there as if I’m shooting free throws
I said excuse me miss I only wanna buy shoes
she said I love you Murph especially in the white and blue
I said the white in blue sound nice make it twice
and I signed an autograph
“thanks for the advice”


White Translation
I like khaki and army green colors on my Nike sneakers
They have leather and pinstripes. You should see how I tie my shoelaces
I wear a size 12. It has a strap on it. The red and whites sneakers go well with my St. Louis Cardinals cap.
I really like them all. It depends on my mood.

I’m in Foot Locker and I really want some Nike Air Force One sneakers
I wear a ten and a half. I’ll take two please!
I can tell the woman working there has never heard of an obscure rapper before whose only claim to fame is a song about sneakers
She’s standing there and not rushing to help me
I told her I want shoes
She said, you look good in the white and blues
So I said, Thanks. I’ll take two please!
Then I gave her an autograph to show her my appreciation

Lil’ Wayne-Police Officer
Doing a buck in my latest drop
I got stopped by a lady cop
Ha Ha… she got me thinking I can date a cop
Ha Ha… cause her uniform pants are so tight
She read me my rights
She put me in the car, she cut off all the lights
She said I had the right to remain silent
Now I got her hollering sounding like a siren
And I know she the law, and she know I’m the boss
And she know I get high!! a-bove the law
And she know I’m raw, she know it from the street
And all she want me to do is fuck the police [4]

White Translation
I was driving 100 mph in my new car
When I got pulled over by a female police officer for speeding
Her pants are very tight. I like a nice ass and she has me wondering what it would be like to fuck her
She read me my rights
She put me in the car and shut the lights off
She said I should shut up while we have sex in her police car
Now I have her screaming with pleasure
She’s the law but I’m in charge here
She knows because I’m famous that I am above the law. I smoke weed and that doesn’t bother her.
She also knows that I’m a tough guy because I come from a rough area
She wants me to have sex with her

crank dat soulja boy lyrics explainedSoulja Boy-Crank Dat Soulja Boy

Soulja boy off in this hoe
Watch me crank it
Watch me roll
Watch me crank that soulja boy
Then super man that hoe

Soulja boy off in this hoe
Watch me lean and watch me rock
Super man that hoe
Then watch me crank that Robocop
Super fresh, now watch me jock
Jocking on them haters man
When I do that soulja boy
I lean to the left and crank that thang
I’m jocking on your bitch ass
And if we get the fighting
Then I’m cocking on your bitch ass
You catch me at your local party
Yes I crank it everyday
Haters getting mad cause
I got me some bathing apes

White Translation [5]
Soulja Boy is having sex with a woman
Right before he orgasms, he will pull out and ejaculate all over this woman’s backside
Then he will put a bed sheet over her so it sticks to her back and she has a cape like Superman

Some more lines about having sex with promiscuous women and then ejaculating all over them
Sometimes he leans to the left before he does it.
If he gets into a fight with someone he will kill said individual
You can find Soulja Boy at any local party
He has sex every day
And jealous people get mad because he has nice sneakers and they don’t.

1. Nelly is making a reference to the Jay-Z song “Change Clothes,” which was on the 2003 album titled The Black Album. Nelly is using clever wordplay to describe how often he changes his grills.
2. Sprewells are a type of rim that continues to spin once the car is stopped. It was popularized by former NBA player Latrell Spreewell; hence the constant reference to Sprewells.
3. A brand of Nike sneakers that Nelly loved so much he devoted an entire song to them.
4. A pun, referencing the iconic N.W.A song “Fuck the Police,” while also describing having sex with a police officer.
5. I’m sorry, I was trying to impress you. I don’t know what this song means. I’ll be honest, I don’t think anyone knows what it means anymore. Scholars maintain that the translation was lost hundreds of years ago.
