5 Songs with Superstar Condom Cameos
Yikes. Ray Stephens from Have Sex Standing Up is pretttyyy ticked off. He can’t believe that a significant number of folks know little or nothing about condoms. Do you know who does? Musicians! There are lots of song lyrics that mention condoms. Since we can’t send iPods to the uninformed masses, here are the lyrics to those catchy condom tunes. I think that they’ll remember “jimmy hats” much better now.
And don’t have sex if she’s too gone/when it comes to condoms put two on (trust me)-–“I Love College,” Asher Roth
Rapper Asher Roth seems to have the right intention, but I hope the mention of using two condoms is metaphorical since two is NOT better than one when it comes to condoms (in fact, it’s worse).
And I said uhhhh, you are like the type of girl I like…/I said hold on/and it won’t take long /baby put this put this put this rubber on!—“Rubber On,” Pitbull
Pitbull uses a weapon of mass protection in the heat (Miami heat?) of the moment. Smart man!
All the better to love you with!/No glove, no love/if you don’t believe me-–“Evil Boy,” Die Antwoord
A self-explanatory line from South African rap trio Die Antwoord—no cuddling without condoms.
And she say I got great sex/Safe sex is great sex, better wear a latex/’cause you don’t want that late text/that “I think I’m late,” text…so wrap it up!-–“Lollipop (Remix),” Lil’ Wayne
Brilliant wordplay (before foreplay) from the self-proclaimed best rapper alive. Weezy F. Baby doesn’t want another baby, so he rightfully wraps it up.
I went to the free clinic, it was filled to capacity/now how bad can a piece of a** be?/Very bad, so I had to make the trip/and thank God, I didn’t have the drips/I was there so a h** couldn’t gimme that/just to get - twenty free jimmy hats-–“Look Who’s Burnin’,” Ice Cube
What’s cooler than cool? Rapper Ice Cube dishing about his trip to a health clinic for “jimmy hats.” (And it comes full circle.)
