What Ray J's "i Hit It First" Is Really About










Ray J's reliance on words like "hit," "hop," and "boppers," as well as his claim that he can do it all without "even put[ting] in work" makes the Bop It thesis incredibly persuasive. Given the tactile nature of Bop It, in which one must "pull" and "twist" and "squeeze" and "bop" it, confusing Ray J's lyrics for a song about sex is understandable but ultimately misinformed. Ray J's repetition of "I hit it" at the end of the verse is a further shout out to Bop It and his mastery of it. He is proud of his Bop It skills and is challenging any and all listeners to challenge his prowess. "I had her head going north and her ass going south/ But now baby chose to go West/ We deep in the building she know that I kill 'em/ I know that I hit it best." Many of those in the I-Hit-It-First-Is-A-Kanye-West-Diss-Track Camp point to these lyrics in particular to argue that Ray J is referencing Kim Kardashian's decision to leave him and go "(Kanye) West." What these critics are overlooking, however, are the general themes of travel and abandonment that mark Ray J's ballad, and that completely transcend any current event or person. Rather, Ray J is reflecting on the earliest stages of American westward expansion. <br>Source: http://blogs.villagevoice.com/music/2013/04/ray_j_i_hit_it_first_really_about.php

"Why is he hiding his face? He's always trying to show his face when he's with Whitney. Why now?

Cruise, a Scientologist who shuns psychiatry, insisted the depression could be treated with "vitamins and exercise." Shields responded by writing an op-ed piece in the <em>New York Times,</em> writing: "I'm going to take a wild guess and say that Mr. Cruise has never suffered from postpartum depression ... And comments like those made by Tom Cruise are a disservice to mothers everywhere ... If any good can come of Mr. Cruise's ridiculous rant, let's hope that it gives much-needed attention to a serious disease." Cruise later apologized to Shields, the actress told Jay Leno a year later. <br>Source: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/10/kanye-west-ray-j-hit-it-first_n_3900572.html

But for all of Ray J's antics, his rise to fame hasn't been as swift or as high as his ex-girlfriend's.

"One of the things thats very difficult for people is to watch their ex move on to someone more successful than they are. That goes for anyone," Elliott explained. But she had another theory toexplain Ray J's behavior that may be more subtle: "There was the intervening Whitney Houston thing. He took her death very hard, and this might be one of the things that happens when you have a loss and you havent dealt with other losses: They all kind of come up together." "Many, many times people have their anger come out sideways when theyre not directly dealing with the thing theyre really angry about." In other words, Ray J may not simply be working out only the loss and successes of http://www.rayj-sextape.com Kim Kardashain in his life, but other problems, too. <br>Source: http://www.complex.com/music/2013/04/for-the-love-of-ray-j-is-i-hit-it-first-a-cry-for-help
