"With your boo, all his homeboys think I'm cute (Doo-doo-doo doo-doo-doo-doo)/Ridin' ’round tinted 5, totin' his iron/Better not no opp try nothin' (Boom-boom-boom boom-boom-boom-boom)/You gettin' filled too/I coulda killed you/You lost a tennis shoe/We shootin' out the roof/And now you on the news."

Sexyy Red's hilarious video certainly isn't the only time singer-songwriter Vanessa Carlton has rubbed up against the rap game. When Yungeen Ace, Spinabenz, Whoppa Wit Da Choppa and FastMoney Goon similarly sampled the piano-driven "A Thousand Miles" for the song "Who I Smoke" back in 2021, Vanessa Carlton famously came out in support of the rappers' use of her music.
