Ray J’s “I Hit It First”: An Analysis of the Worst Thing Ever Created

29 Apr

Can you name a song by Ray J? Do you remember who Ray J is? Perhaps you recall Brandy, Ray J’s more successful and older sister. She was the one who sang “The Boy is Mine” with Monica back in the 90’s. Unfortunately for Ray J, many people do not know him for his music, but for his parlaying into reality television when he “looked for love” on the VH1 show For the Love of Ray J. He also had a song a couple years back that was sort of a hit (“Sexy Can I”).

This album cover. Blah.

This album cover. Blah.

The thing Ray J is most famous for is his sex tape with Kin Kardashian, and boy, does he want us to remember that.  Ray J’s latest song, “I Hit it First” is a simple tune that allows him to brag about banging out Kim before she ended up with Kris Humphries of the Brooklyn Nets and Kanye West, of well, being Kanye West.

This song is so mind-blowingly awful that it bends all rules of awfulness and really just leaves anyone listening to it to want to be deaf. The lyrics are the work of a true imbecile. Here, a sampling:

She might move on to rappers and ballplayers
But we all know I hit it first
I hop in the club and boppers show love, and I don’t even put in work
I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it first
I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it first

Yikes. Hold on, it gets much worse. I give you the first verse:
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 the best
Candles lit with that wine, money still on my mind
And I gave her that really bomb sex
No matter where she goes or who she knows
She still belongs in my bed
Going hard in the streets, mobbin with my homies
Sippin’ on good, blowin’ on OG
Me and ghost sittin’ clean with the matching rollie
I did that first so everybody know me

Hmm. “her head going north and her ass going south”? This could mean so many things.  Ray J is a true poet.

You can listen to the full song on SoundCloud:

“No matter where she goes or who she knows / She still belongs in my bed”. Ray J wants Kim back in his bed. Let’s be honest – he wants to be famous for something again. The only thing that ever made him slightly famous at all. Doing Kim Kardashian. Yawn.

The fact that Ray J thinks this an appropriate song to release as a single is just weird. Plus, the album cover is a lame attempt at referencing the cover of Kanye West’s masterpiece, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.  It’s a blurred photo of Kim Kardashian in her bikini, strolling down the beach.

Ray J has always been a mediocre singer and this song cements this fact. “I Hit It First” – the worst thing ever created.
