Rap Sex Euphemism: Young Money’s “BedRock”

The cataloging of sexual euphemisms in rap songs continues. This time:

EUPHEMISM: "Bedrock."

[youtube:v=Ha80ZaecGkQ]

DEFINING MOMENT: Young Money's "BedRock," in which Lloyd announces, "Call me Mr. Flinstone, I can make your bed rock." (Thanks to Heartless Doll for the tip).

LITERALLY: "Bedrock" has several classic associations. According to Wikipedia, bedrock is the stratigraphic term for "the native consolidated rock underlying the surface of a terrestrial planet, usually the Earth." Bedrock, when employed as a proper noun, is also home to animated prehistoric family The Flinstones. It is this definition which the Young Money lyrics favor.

UNDERLYING MEANING: Has there ever been a weaker sexual euphemism? According to Urban Dictionary, the phenomenon of bedrock—the sexy kind—occurs "when two are enjoying intercourse & the man shakes the bed." Obviously. "Bedrock" is mostly pun at this point, but if Young Money's track takes off, we may see this term come into its own as a bonafide euphemism. On the other hand, for a song filled with references like "Call me Red Bull / we can fly away" and "I be stuck to her / Like glue, baby," I'm not betting on this track's lyrical stylings enduring.

    I think what makes Lil' Wayne (Young Money is really just Lil Wayne et al) great is his ability to produce a song with terrible lyrics, concepts, and rapping and make it something truly beautiful.

    The amount of talentless people making money in the industry is amazing. Pure marketing and hype combined with braindead people who follow a certain sytle to pretend they know where they fit in, in the world.
