Given the plethora of disgusting euphemisms for vag, raunch-rapper Royce da 5'9"'s straightforward approach (and anatomical correctness) is actually slightly refreshing. Of course, he still slips in the meanest misogyny—calling girls he's doing "ugly" and "chickens," et al—but tempers that with ridiculous lines like I've got a present for you right here/ actually it's not a present, it's my penis. Homie knows he ain't god's gift, which is more than one can say about 97% of the rappers talking about the bonezone—his approach is reminiscent of 1990s play-rap, and in the scheme of things, the ridiculous jokester approach to women-objectifying is a hell of a lot more palatable than even what some R&B singers are peddling. Still, don't let this dude around your daughters.
