A line-by-line analysis of Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Lil' Wayne's "Truffle Butter"

The True Meaning of Nicki Minaj’s “Truffle Butter”

March 06, 2016 / by / 0 Comment

Since last summer the should-have-been-Academy-Award nominated song “Truffle Butter” has been blaring across suburban exercise classes across the country.

These Lulu Lemon-riddled establishments have been playing the clean version, out of fear that the real Truffle Butter is too explicit. However, what people forget about the song is the fact that it’s actually about personal wellness. Let me enlighten you:

Drake Verse

“Two things I’m about talkin’ blunt and staying blunted” 

This line is about staying true to your feelings and expressing them openly. Drake has always expressed a love for being in touch with one’s feelings and not bottling his emotions, perhaps of his high soy consumption or perhaps it’s because it’s the healthy thing to do. The staying blunted part refers to not running around with scissors, as Drake is a safety-first man.

“Pretty women are you here, are you here right now?”

Once again Drake is talking about the importance of being direct. He walks into the club and shouts “pretty women are you here right now” to which pretty women are likely to respond “yes.” Chances are a rather large and not pretty woman will also respond “yes” but because Drake is blunt, he’ll tell her she’s lying — this is how the song “Doing it Wrong” was born.

“Fresh sheets and towels man she gotta love it”

This song is about practicing good sanitation for your guests. Clearly, Aubrey has invited one of the pretty women from the club over to his house. Any respectful host would know that your guest deserves fresh sheets and towels. Besides, it’s also much cleaner than your previous unwashed sheets and towels, and practicing good hygiene is essential to well-being. Thank you, Drake.

Nicki Minaj Verse

“I ain’t gotta compete with a single soul”

You’re not going to win running somebody else’s race, so what’s with all the life comparisons? Sure you dropped out, barely got a GED and have been working at Baskin Robbins for five years while your cousin went to Harvard and is the youngest VP in Goldman Sachs history BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO PROVE ANYTHING. Just make sure to wash the weed smell out of that gray sweatshirt you’ve had since you were 15.

“You a stand up or is you in your chair right now”

Chances are you were too fixated on Nicki’s grammatical errors to notice the true message of this line, which is to encourage more physical activity. Today, the average American sits in a chair for 10 hours a day, that number is even higher for abusive spouses with recliners. So, Nicki is asking you to make sure you stand and stretch, even if it’s for a few minutes a day!

“I floss everyday but I ain’t a dentist”

Wow. Oral hygiene is too often overlooked, 27% of Adult Americans have untreated dental caries, and with the help of Colgate, Nicki is going to reduce that to at least 10% or she’ll be damned. DENTAL DAMNED.

Lil’ Wayne Verse

Uh, thinkin’ out loud
I could be broke and keep a million dollar smile
LOL to the bank checkin’ my account
Bank teller flirtin’ after checkin’ my account
Pretty ladies, are you here? Truffle butter on your pussy
Cuddle buddies on the low
You ain’t gotta tell your friend that I eat it in the morning
Cause she gonna say “I know”
Can I hit it in the bathroom? Put your hands on the toilet
I put one leg on the tub
Girl, that’s my new dance move, I just don’t know what to call it
But bitch you dancing with the stars
I ain’t nothin’ like your last dude, what’s his name? Not important
I bought some cocaine if you snortin’
And she became a vacuum, put it on my dick like carpet
Suck the white off white chocolate
I’m so heartless, thoughtless, lawless n’ flawless
Smallest regardless, largest in charge and born in New Orleans
Get killed 4 Jordans
Skateboard, I’m gnarly; Drake, Tunechi and Barbie
You know

This verse is actually very explicitly about sex, and in all honesty it’s pretty gross. This is probably why they play the clean version outside of the city lines.
