A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this music.

Positive Messages

Not only is this song filled with sex, violence, and graphic language, but it also has a deeply angry and aggressive tone overall.

Positive Role Models & Representations

None of the many actions and behaviors referenced here could be construed as positive.


Lots of violent metaphors ranging from shooting to decapitation: "Mind so sharp, I f--k around and cut my head off."


Graphic sexual references; for example, "Two bitches at the same time, synchronized swimmers / Got the girl twisted 'cause she open when you twist her / Never met the bitch, but I f--k her like I missed her."


Plenty of explicit language, from "f--k" to "s--t" to "n----r."


Not a lot of product references, though there are several lines about material things like diamonds and money.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

References to drinking.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that "6 Foot 7 Foot" is a lot like Lil' Wayne's other songs in that it includes extremely graphic language, sex, violence, substance use, and exceptionally dark themes. Even the edited version of the track, which simply bleeps out the swear words, is too mature for most teens.

Lil Wayne doesn't change much, and has flaws, but is pretty good to listen to, with good flow.

Lil Wayne has now become the staple of irritating writing. He's become flexible in his style dependant on multiple factors, but the first half of his song... Continue reading

What's the story?

6 FOOT 7 FOOT is the latest in a long line of extremely graphic singles from Lil' Wayne, a rapper who's well-known for law-breaking antics in his personal life. True to form, Lil' Wayne once again sets the world aflame in this track, scorching through every topic in front of him with a lot of angry, dark, explicit language and references to sex, violence, and substances. It's not a song that most parents would want their kids and teens to hear.

Is it any good?

Musically, this song has the same effect as a gnat near your ear: its whiny, high-pitched, frenetic vocals and beats have a seriously grating effect on the nerves. The rapping from both Lil' Wayne and guest star Cory Gunz sounds almost frantic, making the whole song hard to listen to. Coupled with its tired themes of bragging, violence, sex, and substances, the tune is just another one to throw on the pile of unoriginal rap releases.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how these lyrics include a lot of swagger. Why do so many rap songs incorporate this bravado? Are people who brag a lot always as confident as they appear on the outside?

  • Does the profanity in this song bother you? Why or why not?

  • What are your family's rules about songs with explicit lyrics?
