Of course not. That’s what these dudes do: They put on wigs, they buy dildos, they put it in they mouth, they do stuff like that. We all moving forward.

Plus all credit to Ben Detrick, whose ego tripian feat of compiling full codices of rap insults and their instances–say, the wifey category: “That’s why I fucked yo’ bitch, you fat motherfucker,” Tupac, “Hit ‘Em Up”; “If you think I’m fucking your wife/You’re motherfucking right,” Eazy-E, “Niggaz 4 Life”; “I hope your girl get AIDS,” Cam’ron, “Hate Music”; “I let your girl suck my dick from the back/And let your moms give me cornrows on my crack,” Redman, “Noorotic”; “I get your bitch pregnant/You take the bitch to Lamaze,” R.A. the Rugged Man, “American Lowlife”–surely will help someone with their graduate dissertation someday.
