Deconstructing Beezy, Part One: Is Soulja Boy Serious on “Gucci Bandana”?



Since the release of Soulja Boy's latest album ¡SouljaBoyTellem on December 18th, we have been grappling with it on nearly every level imaginable: production, rapping, singing, videos, art direction, etc. This series, Deconstructing Beezy, is our attempt to come to terms and hopefully peacefully coexist with 2009's most perplexing album.


Part One

At 0:55 of "Gucci Bandana" with Gucci Mane and Shawty Lo, Soulja Boy raps the following couplet: "And ain't this beat tight?/My chain say 'Hello,' my watch say 'Goodbye.'" Is he serious? If he isn't… kudos, Beezy, kudos.
