Rae Sremmurd – Come Get Her


Rae Sremmurd is part of this new era of rap that makes no sense to me, so I thought I’d look into their lyrics to see if there was any magic to behold. I was confused by the whole thing.


Somebody come get her, she’s dancin’ like a stripper
Somebody come get her, she’s dancin’ like a stripper
Somebody come tip her, she’s dancin’ like a stripper
Somebody come get her, she’s feelin’ all the liquor

Do strippers dance? Are what they do on stage technically dancing? I had to look up by typing stripper dance. It gave me porn. Lots of porn. Luckily I found Wikipedia hiding in-between to help me research the topic, but even on the stripper Wikipedia page, the main photo is of nude women. You win again Internet.

Anyways, the Stripper Wikipedia page states that they are also known as erotic dancers. Furthermore, the performance that they do on stage is known as a striptease. This also has a Wikipedia page with even more photos.  The striptease as defined on Wikipedia says, “is an erotic or exotic dance in which the performer gradually undresses, either partly or completely, in a seductive and sexually suggestive manner.

So apparently there is a woman the song is referring to that is baring it all. Due to the behavior, the rapper is confused so much by it that he doesn’t know if someone should “get her”, tip her, or after thinking it over, definitely “get her” cause she’s hammered. I guess it’s a nice thing to do to help the lady out.

Chopped and screwed up
I’m a pothead, true enough
At your ex’s crib and you’re boo’d up
Take it slow baby, we in no rush
Hennessy or Don Q, that’s a very hard choice
For the diamonds on my pinky, need a gang of cool points
And the drop head make ’em drop dead, yeah
Ye ain’t scared, ye ain’t scared, ye ain’t scared, yeah
Believe me, I’m out here, you see me, in action
I’ve heard a lot, a lot about you
Catchin’ round blunts like a hot potato
And you dancin’ on the table, gushin’ like volcano

Ok, cool, you smoke pot. Not a big deal anymore. At my ex’s crib? Yeah, who cares, she’s single, and it didn’t work out between us. Someone needs to keep her busy. Wait, is he talking specifically about me or, just everyone? Because that’s a lot of women, and a lot of places to be simultaneously. I’m calling bull shit. It’s not possible.

He tells her to take it slow, as there is no rush, and goes to consume a bunch of alcohol which causes erectile dysfunction. Poor choice. I do not understand what the next three lines are supposed to me, so I’ll just skip that part.

Finally, he says this girl is catching round blunts like a hot potato. I do not understand how warmed spuds have to do with weed at all, so this statement makes no sense. Afterward, the final line says she’s dancing on the table, gushing like a volcano. So now she’s on a table and proceed to puke out of her mouth, or is it sexual juice coming out of her baby maker? I don’t know, but either one would be gross, and weird to see.

Somebody come get her, she’s dancin’ like a stripper
Somebody come get her, she’s dancin’ like a stripper
Somebody come tip her, she’s dancin’ like a stripper
Somebody come get her, she’s feelin’ all the liquor

Chorus lines again so nothing new here.

You got girls in here? I’m recruitin’
And they fine, hop the line
I’ve been sippin’ on Patrón and wine
I’m just tryna have a good fuckin’ time
I was chillin’ with the open container
Grabbed her arm, told her not to be a stranger
I was throwin’ on the drank with my niggas
I was lookin’ for the girls who willin’
Baby girl, if you fuck with me then we gettin’ bands
If you smokin’ with me then we on dabs
I don’t fuck with local hoes, I told you that
How you movin’, you deserve a couple racks

I’m going to skip the first few lines and go right “Grabbed her arm, told her not to be a stranger.” This is a bold move. So bold that it’s considered sexual assault. He tries to cover this a couple of lines later when he says he’s looking for girls who are willing, but I think he might be liberal with the word willing. This theory is proven the very next line when he is offering to pay her money to have sex with him

He doesn’t fuck with local hoes though, and that sounds stupid to me. Who is he sleeping with? Tourists? Did he already ask if she was not from around the area. He said just minutes ago that he was a girls crib, so he is definitely fucking local girls, and this whole statement needs to be taken out of the track for conflicting earlier statements.

Somebody come get her, she’s dancin’ like a stripper
Somebody come get her, she’s dancin’ like a stripper
Somebody come tip her, she’s dancin’ like a stripper
Somebody come get her, she’s feelin’ all the liquor

Again, I have nothing to add to these chorus lines. Moving on.

Hundreds on your face, baby girl
Come and do that little thing that you was doin’
Aye they was in this mothafucka trippin’
What the hell they think we was doin’?
It seems like we’re fuckin’ in this club
Baby girl, what they think that we’re doin’?
You gettin’ on my nerves with them questions
Girl you know I’m tryna start a little movement
Ain’t got no business fuckin’ with you
Out the blue, you actin’ brand new
Washingtons mean nothing to you
Same way with us

He’s continuing to pay women even though, I feel, it should be easy for a known celebrity. Maybe it’s actually hard to have sex if you’re a celebrity. I doubt it though. The girl seems to finally understand that this guy is bothering her and starts asking questions. This makes him mad, cause he knows he can’t answer them and continue to sleep with the woman.

Both parties disburse and that’s the end of this story. There are chorus lines again after this but I won’t type that in. My understanding of the story is that he thinks he’s a “bad man”, but in the end, he can’t even pay a woman to sleep with him, and he goes home. I tried, but I can’t like the song as it’s too weird to jam to a man eliciting prostitution.
