Do u guys like titty rap? Titty rap is blowin up the charts these days, and we are str8 crazy8s about it. As part of our new weekly series of single critiques, we wanted to bring you a few paragraphs on Juicy J’s new titty rap anthem, “Show Out,” the follow-up to his hugely successful titty rap jam “Bandz (A make her dance)”. In case you have been living under a rock, or living in some hick town that doesn’t have 4G, allow us to take a few minutes to explain what titty rap is all about.
Titty rap differs from regular rap in that it prominently features verses about titties, strippers, poppin various things (ie bandz, p***y, pillz, bottles, etc), and other trill ballin shit. Popular modern purveyors of titty rap are Juicy J, 2 Chainz, Big Sean, Rick Ross, et al. The history of titty rap remains open for interpretation. Much has been made regarding the influence of 2 Live Crew upon modern titty rap. But my particular line of thinking is that 2 Live Crew’s work, while celebrating the female form in a style similar to modern titty rap, is actually itself derivative of titty rap’s true pioneers, the titty funk of George Clinton and the titty rap baby steps made regionally famous by Afrika Bambaataa.

But the history of the genre is really beside the point. It’s fkn 2k13 and titty rap is here to stay. So crank up ur drebeats and A make her dance.
Confession: I still haven’t actually listened to “Show Out.” I did ‘star’ it on spotify, and I played it this morning while I took a shower so I heard some parts of it. And who tf needs to actually listen to music to write a dope review of it anyways? This isn’t 2010 get real. So here is my review based on what I heard in the shower.
“Show Out” begins like any other great titty rap song: with various posturings levied over a simple trap beat. Producer MikeWillMadeIt most likely produced the beat using whatever is the equivalent of fruity loops for windows 95. Then we got some raps about drinkin lean etc. Oh yeah there is like a Young Jeezy chorus I think. I know for a fact there is some really fast hi hats. Lol like prolly had to make the midi dots really small and put them really close together to get that sound. The song takes off when Big Sean begins to rap. See, if ur gonna have a titty rap song, you ALWAYS want it to feature Big Sean. The reason for this is simple: Big Sean created what most analysts believe is the gold standard for titty rap singles in last year’s “Dance @$$”. BS instantly had limitless titty rap cred. He was hotter than Matt Damon in 1998. It was a lot like when Led Zeppelin released Zoso and ppl were like “oh shit it’s like blues but it’s new, and in its wake, Blues music will never be the same.” That is what happened to titty rap when Dance Ass came out.
So anyway, I looked up the lyrics to “Show Out” on rap genius. Big Sean raps about poppin xanax, ratchet hos, then he rhymes ‘shit’ with ‘ho’, then he talks about Anne Hathaway (lol). Then BOOM mother fkers! More Young Jeezy.
So that’s my review of “Show Out.” I hope you found it focused and insightful.
In summation: The Pophublounge gives our first ever New Music Tuesday music review, “Show Out,” 10/10 thumbs up emojis. Congrats to Juicy J and the rest of the boys. Make sure to leave a comment re: what song you want us to review next. We’ll see you guys next week!
