Let Me Just Taste You: Lil Wayne and Rap’s Politics of Cunnilingus

“However, Lil Wayne also raps about cunnilingus on songs that are not entirely about sex. For example, ‘No Worries,’ from I Am not a Human Being II (2011), is a party song that showcases Wayne rapping in the first verse about competition and rivalry. However, in the last line of the verse, he manages to reiterate his desire to perform cunnilingus, even though his partner warns that she has not shaved her vagina. Similarly, on ‘The Motto,’ a bonus track featured on Drake’s 2011 album Thank Me Later, Wayne raps about getting high, beefing with other rappers, hustling, and, of course, cunnilingus. There is something to be said for the fact that cunnilingus is a topic for Lil Wayne both on the margins and at the center. That cunnilingus occupies such a prominent space in his lyrical content underscores its importance, which significantly revises current iterations of Black sexual politics, especially in popular culture.”
