“Pimpin’ Ain’t Eazy” by Kodak Black
“Pimpin’ Ain’t Eazy”, the 1989 rap classic the title of this song is based on, was about the artists’ domination over women (from a sensual standpoint). However, “Pimpin’ Ain’t Eazy”, Kodak’s rendition, isn’t particularly about that. Rather what he seems to focus on most is violence and female gayism. For instance the word “strap”, which is featured various times in this track, is used interchangeably between it being the street synonym for a gun and it being the name of a type of toy used by females of certain orientation.
As such, Kodak lets listeners know that when it’s time for beef, he’s going for the strap. For instance, he starts off the first verse by reminding us that he recently served a six-month jail sentence (with weapon possession being part of the charges). And later he states that he’s not afraid to go to federal prison for life, likely implying a first-degree murder charge or something equally as dangerous. Amongst other boasts stated in Black’s two-verse tirade is his ability to get guns into clubs and his willingness to “kill a rap ni**a”. Overall, the implication is that being tough on the streets is even more important to Black than his rap career.
In terms of gayism, he seems to reference such in primarily two ways. One is so profane that we don’t want to go into it. The other is to state that his peers can’t get near him like a straight man to a lesbian but more in the sense of them being unable to compete. He also states somewhat of a preference for lesbians, even insinuating that he feel in love with one.
Kodak’s numerous references to gunplay and lesbianism are all meant to boil down to one concept – that he’s a pimp and holding such a title “ain’t easy”.
