“Blueberry Faygo” by Lil Mosey
The title of this song (“Blueberry Faygo”) is actually a reference to a specific flavor of a soft drink particularly popular within some circles in the United States. More specifically the reason a hardcore rapper like Lil Mosey would be compelled to name a track after soda pop is because said brand is widely utilized in the creation of lean. Lean is an illicit mixture of a number of substances, including drinking soda which serves as a powerful intoxicant. And interestingly, this mixture has been espoused by a number of rappers throughout recent years.
But whereas the title of this track may serve as a roundabout shoutout to a well-known inebriant, Lil Mosey isn’t necessarily rapping about getting wasted. Rather his primary focus seems to be on gunplay, referencing quite a wide range of firearms in the process. Secondly he speaks a lot about overly-promiscuous ladies whom he and his “team” tend to take advantage of.
So the explicit nature of the lyrics isn’t necessarily the kind of content that you would expect to blow up on an international youth platform like TikTok. But as is often the case on such sites, perhaps the audience was focusing more on the sound of the catchy tune. And in doing so, the audience was probably oblivious to the hardcore matters which Mosey is actually harping on.
