Thanks to a viral VINE video, the Sausage Movement is upon us.
Tell your kids to cover their ears because this movement is primarily about…well, penis. While its initial introduction highlighted the various and (let’s face it) creative ways to cater to a “sausage,” the movement fell onto a more serious plate when rapper Lil’ Mama took to World Star Hip Hop to unveil her take on the craze breaking the internet.
“Sausage” debuted online as a high-energy music video that guarantees to either make you hungry or make you sweat as you dance along to the beat. With lyrics that are anything but apologetic, Lil’ Mama makes one thing clear: there is a message for everyone in this song.
For the sexual being in you:
“You better use a condom if you’re taking that sausage.”
Lil’ Mama encourages the use of protection as people embrace their sexuality.
For the media amuck with misinformation:
“(I don’t f*** with you.)”
“It’s funny how I asked y’all years ago watcha know about me and you still don’t know...”
Lil’ Mama makes a point to remind the media of its shoddy coverage of her musical career and personal life.
For her fellow musicians:
Lil’ Mama uses her delivery of the song to pay homage to many of the musicians and artists from whom she draws inspiration – Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, Wu Tang Clan, Fetty Wap, Missy Elliott, Teena Marie, and many more…
For everyone else:
“The birds are chirping…eggs, bacon, grits, sausage...”
Lil’ Mama advises people to focus less on how the media negatively portrays her and more on forming their own opinions about her and her music.
Although the lack of a cohesive concept may make this song seem a little disjointed, and the busyness of the video may take away from the message, one thing is certain: the media’s opinions don’t satisfy Lil’ Mama’s palate. This Brooklyn-born rapper is serving bonafide confidence in what some might call her first real attempt to mark her territory in the music industry. So if you can’t stand the heat, get out the kitchen.
