Here's What People Would Do For Some TrukfitBy Noisey Staff
Man, isn't "Pop That" just the greatest song of all time? Like, when we're all living in an old folks' home on the moon and our great-great-great-spacegrandchildren come to visit us and ask us what life was like in the Pre-Galactic Era (this is what we will call the early 2000's in the future, trust me), we're definitely going to show them the "Pop That" video. When our great-great-great-spacegrandchildren ask what this "Trukfit" is that Lil Wayne's rapping about, and we will explain that the reason everyone now wears shorts that are made of zebra-print sweatpant material is because Lil Wayne introduced them to an unsuspecting public in 2012 and everyone freaked out about them because of how cool they were.
Last week, we held a contest that posed a simple query: What would you do for some Trukfit? We got a bunch of responses via both Twitter and email, and here are some of our favorites:
—I'd eat eighteen grapes a day until I died and also I hate grapes!
—I'd go to my local Senior Center and play "Pop That!"
—I would eat elephant dung and drink someone's pee and brush my teeth with a razor!
—I'd summon a dragon and teach it how to do a Smith Grind!
—I'd delete my Instagram feed like Chief Keef did!
—I'll go volunteer at every homeless shelter and nursing home for a whole year!
The winners of the contest, however, are the following two individuals, one of whom went above and beyond the call of Trukfit, and the other of whom including a really funny story about once tricking their dad into saying, "What's poppin', slime?" to someone on the phone after their official submission.
—I would do a dramatic reading of all of Weezy's tweets in a Weezy voice and film it and then put it on a CD and deliver it to his house.
The other winner kind of freaked us out, because he pretty much immediately responded to our contest with the following email:
I'd hunt down every mention of what Lil Wayne thinks the "F" in "Weezy F. Baby" stands for:
Finisher--"6 Foot 7 Foot"
Bunch Of Shit--"Go Hard"
Not For Failing--"No Ceilings"
Flame--"Oh Let's Do It"
Fuck--"Oh Lets Do It"
Front Door--"Miss Me"
Franchise--"New Orleans Maniac"
Fuck Themselves--"Nightmares Of The Bottom"
Not Fear--"Nightmares Of The Bottom"
Ain’t For Flaw--"Nightmares Of The Bottom"
Forget It--"Hands Up"
Fuck you--"How To Hate"
Fill In The Blank--"Roman Reloaded"
So, that dude wins. Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to everyone for entering.
