Nothing's better,If you get nothing else out of this list, please learn about the existence of this Village People song, where they passionately extol the virtues of the Big Mac, and its superiority to all other foods in the world. Sure, like all the Village People songs, it's probably some veiled message about gay sex... but taking it at face value, McDonald's couldn't get a better -- and catchier -- advertisement than this.
Nothing's better than a Big Mac!
Use buttermilk biscuits to clean your plateSir Mix-A-Lot shouts out fast food in almost every one of his songs -- apparently his robustness isn't glandular -- but never with more adulation than during "Buttermilk Biscuits". KFC gets mentioned in several songs by several artists (in lieu of pushing forward a stereotype, I won't specifically say which genre shouts them out the most), but I couldn't find any other case where one of their menu items was actually the eponymous inspiration for one.
You eat 'em in the morn', you eat 'em at night.
Kentucky Fried Chicken makes the suckers just right.
I am eat 'em with jelly, it's my favorite deally,
Wrapped and sealed by a freak named Shelley.
No helicopter looking for a murder,Hardcore readers will remember my list of 11 Ways Ice Cube and I Differ On Assessing What Constitutes A Good Day. In that list I went on a mini rant about Fatburger and how I don't really like it, especially when compared to southern California's other dominant burger chain, In-N-Out. That being said -- this lyric is what drove me to a Fatburger back when I moved to L.A. (Well, that lyric and my forest green Saturn.) And I'm sure it's done the same for others. That's some quality product placement.
Two in the morning got a Fatburger.
I'm a freak.No, it probably doesn't fit the Burger King brand to have people getting busy in their bathrooms. But on the flip side, the mere fact that any woman would have sex in one is a pretty solid testimonial for the corporate cleanliness standards. How many fast food bathrooms have you been in, lifetime, that seem like good places to have sex? I'd set the over-under at 1.5.
I like the girls with the boom.
I once got busy in a Burger King bathroom.
I like the way that they walk.Leans ever so slightly to the positive because, at least, they're saying you can meet girls at White Castle. No one's ever said that about Arby's.
And it's chill to hear them talk.
And I can always make them smile.
From White Castle to the Nile.
I said, "C'mon toots - my name is the Prince.So the most harmless rapper in history steals his mom's Porsche and takes it to the McDonald's drive-thru. While I'm sure McDonald's higher-ups wouldn't want to be associated with the grand theft auto (except for maybe the Hamburgler), it does add a certain amount of faux-rebellious bougie street cred to their food. Still, falls more to the negative than positive.
Beside, would a lunatic have a Porsche like this?"
She agreed and we were on our way,
She was looking very good and so was I, I must say.
We hit McDonald's, pulled into the drive,
We ordered two Big Macs and two large fries with Cokes.
I still go to Taco Bell, drive through, Ross, hell--She's using Taco Bell as an example of her old "real" life. Even though everyone knows that her career went Kids, Incorporated -> Meth -> Black Eyed Peas. This, of course, gives me the opportunity to feature one of the most surreal videos in the history of YouTube, a young Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson singing Lionel Richie's "Say You Say Me" to an ultra-creepy clown. I CANNOT OVERSTATE HOW MUCH YOU SHOULD WATCH THIS VIDEO.
I don't care, I'm still real,
No matter how many records I sell.
Before this was a job, before I got paid,Not only is he using Subway as a symbol for his unsuccessful pre-stardom life... but he's also drawing light to the fact that Subways don't even HAVE tip jars out for the staff. I guess sandwich artists don't deserve the same gratuities as the curbside address painting artists.
Before it ever mattered what I had in my bank.
Yeah back when I was tryin' to get a tip at Subway.
And every single person is a Slim Shady lurkin'.The problem is, a fair portion of the people who work at Burger King ARE like Eminem. (Same attitude, infinitely less success, slightly more homemade tattoos). And there IS always a concern that they're spitting in the food. And this lyric just reminds you of that. Bad news. When the Burger King higher-ups (like The King and Wheels) hear this, I'm sure they long for the days when Shock G was putting on a fake nose and getting busy by their urinals.
He could be working at Burger King,
Spitting on your onion rings.
You know you ghetto when you don't show up at court,As I am to understand it, this song is a battle between the guys of Goodie Mob and the ladies of TLC (during the Left Eye era)... where the guys are trying to prove they're ghetto enough for the ladies, and the ladies are insisting that the guys are not, in fact, ghetto enough for them.
For not paying your child support.
Are you too bossier for me?
You act like you too good to eat at Church's, Popeye's and Arby's.
