Smell Yo Dick by Riskay
Sometimes monumental things happen. We have lived through great events. Everyone remembers where they were when World War II ended, when JFK got shot, when the Berlin War fell. Yes, you can’t quite get that out of your mind. You’ll remember it forever. I feel when I saw the video “Smell Yo Dick” by Riskay my life was forever changed for the better.
Riskay is the lobotomized Janis Joplin of our generation. The song revolves around questions of fidelity. Her love interest has her worried. He stays out late, until 5 in the morning according to the song lyrics. Some of her friends have taken pictures of her hubby’s transgressions with their state of the art ‘camera phones’.
I enjoy the amount of product placement in the video. Infidelity is brought to you by Snickers. Glad they managed to squeeze that into the video. But why stop there? Why not take it to the logical conclusion? The lyrics say ‘take a lot of pictures’. Transform that to ‘eat a lot of snickers’ and you’ll have your song paid for before you even write it.
The plea feels a bit weak to me. “Can I smell yo dick?” and “Let me smell yo dick.” I’m not sure why she’s politely asking or stating anything. Right now it looks like he has cheated on her with a Snickers bar. Riskay really must pin him down and take a deep whiff. If it at least smells like another woman, then she’s dealing with a relatively normal problem. If however it smells like some nut and nougat-filled, confectionary treat she’s in for roughly five years of therapy. Besides he didn’t even respond to any of her text messages. That deserves at the very least some sort of interrogation. He’s been flossin’, let’s keep this in mind. He can’t simply fuck ‘hers’ (Diamond’s) and then try to fuck ‘mine’ (in this case Riskay’s).
“Smell Yo Dick” is a deep song about the state of fidelity in our great, sea-to-shining-sea country. Apparently things are going bad if there needs to be dick sniffing. I wonder though if she sniffed his dick with a cold and was unable to smell infidelity. How can we really check up on alleged infidelity if not with a genital smell test? Will technology advance enough where we can determine fidelity without a genital sniff? I just don’t know.
What this song has done is forever change the world as we know it.
