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

February 03, 2009



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.
