In the past few months, this song has gained a lot of replay on the radio but few have given it the full credit it deserves. On second listen, you’ll come to find that Trap Queen’s simplistic lyrics boast a multitude of profound meaning that can be applied to all stages of life. The life lessons in this song are comparable to the likes of Rumi or Buddha and accomplishes more than all eight seasons of Entourage.
“Remy Boyzz Yeahhhh, 1738”
The song “Trap Queen” was established by the Remy Boyz 1738, an elite group of gentlemen named after the sophisticated brand of Cognac, Remy Martin 1738.
Lesson #1: How to Land a Date
"I'm like hey, what's up, hello
Seen yo pretty ass soon as you came in the door
I just wanna chill, got a sack for us to roll"
What is often overlooked in modern day courtship is the simplicity of a “hello”. A lady needs no more than a “hello” or maybe even three hellos, as Fetty Wap has given us an example of above. Follow up the “hello” with a compliment or observation, such as “pretty ass” and end by asking her on a date. Fetty Wap suggests splitting a “sack”, offer her to “roll it herself”. So maybe go to a sushi making class together or smoke some weed – it’s all the same novel gesture.
In summary, this is how you land a girl:
- Introduce Yourself
- Make an Observation/Joke/Compliment
- Ask if she wants to hang
Lesson #2: Lead a Life of Ambition
“Married to the money, introduced her to my stove
Showed her how to whip it, now she remixin' for low”
People tend to compromise their career or passions to spend time with their significant other but Fetty Wap and the gang lead by example. Fetty teaches his girl his trade and nurtures her career and drive for success.
Lesson #3: Be an Encouraging and Supportive Partner
“She my trap queen, let her hit the bando
We be countin' up, watch how far them bands go
We just set a goal, talkin' matchin' Lambos”
Here Fetty Wap gives us his most progressive piece of advice: men and women deserve equal pay for equal work. A Trap Queen is a hard worker: loyal to herself, loyal to her man, and loyal to her work. He and his girl are both in the business, entrepreneuring to the max, and just watching those “bands” come in. They set a goal to get “matchin’ Lambos” because they both deserve the same lavish car for their equal work.
Lesson #4: Never Give Up
“Everybody hating, we just call them fans though
in love with the money, I ain’t never letting go”
The climb to the top isn’t easy. People will bring you down and question your work but you should never lose your focus and “ain’t never let go”.
Lesson #5: Eat, Pray, Live, Laugh, and Love
“And I get high with my baby
I just left the mall, I'm gettin' fly with my baby, yeah
And I can ride with my baby
I be in the kitchen cookin' pies with my baby, yeah
And I can ride with my baby”
Ambition must be balanced with cherishing life. You can’t forget to enjoy it all and spend quality time with those that matter to you. “Get fly” with your earnings, “cook pies”, go on long “rides with [your] baby”.
Never stop living.
