What's the story?

EVERY GIRL is the first single from Young Money, a group of five rappers led by its most famous member, Lil' Wayne. The song's title speaks volumes about its theme: these guys want to sleep with every girl -- in every way imaginable. The entire song is an ode to sex, describing in minute detail various sexual situations that also involve drinking and drugs: "I wish I could f--k every girl in the world / …I just can't pick one so you can never say I'm choosy / …And weed and alcohol seem to satisfy us all / …And every time I think of staying with her / She bring that friend around that make a n---a reconsider."

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

Musically, this song sounds amateur at best. The artists use an Autotune throughout, which distorts some of the lyrics so badly that the words are barely comprehensible (maybe a good thing?). The rhymes are set against a backdrop of boring, unimaginative beats that sound as if they were thrown together in a matter of a few minutes. And with five different rappers each needing their time in the spotlight, the song drones on for more than five minutes -- when it was hardly worth one.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about whether people who glorify casual sex may be

  • attempting to compensate for a deficiency in their lives. Is sleeping

  • around truly satisfying, or does it simply mask a deeper

  • loneliness?

Most Explicit Song Ever!

I hate this song. Hate it. I wish I could f-ck every girl in the world? What the heck? Are you serious? Most graphic ever. It's so disturbing and evil. I hate you, Young Money or Lil' Wayne or whoever the heck you are. And only 50% think sexual content is the issue? But they think that on J-Lo's song "On the Floor" 100% of the problem is drinking, drugs, and smoking? Puh-lease. I bet Common Sense Parent would like this song.

Kids shouldn't listen, adults shouldn't listen, it's garbage.

Yet another one of the awful pieces of junk that somehow manage to make it onto my bus every morning and afternoon on the way to and from school. Not much else needs to be said this is AWFUL and not kid appropriate. This is one of those times in which I wish this site let you rate something a zero out of five because that's what it deserves. HORRIBLE!
