Plies is known for making sexual explicit hits, so when he released a snippet of himself remixing the controversial hit “WAP”, fans immediately became hype.
“Y’all Don’t Pay Me No Mind I Just Be In My Own Lil World,” Plies wrote. “Y’all Better Stop Saying I Talk Nasty Cause I Really Don’t!!! Should We Giving The “WAP” (P-Mix)??? I F*ck With @iamcardib &@theestallion By Da Way But Y’all Already Know Dat!!! #ImInnocent.”
Responding to the tag, Cardi B sent fans into a frenzy after consigning that she would like to hear a P-Mix featuring the three rappers spitting their best game on record by tweeting Plies, “I would like to hear it.”
While many fans were excited about the possible collaboration, others pointed out the clear hypocrisy from Black men in response to Plies’ remix of “WAP” versus their reaction to the original version by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion.
“Plies had me singing “can I lick it can I stick it can I touch it can I grab it” at 10, be quiet,” one Twitter user wrote after a video went viral of a man claiming to represent Black fathers calling our Cardi and Megan for their lyrics.
While Plies appreciated the nod for being one of the kings of sexually explicit lyrics, the “Becky” rapper took to Twitter jokingly asking fans to remove his name from the “nasty song” conversation.
Despite the double standard, “WAP” Twitter went on to show love and appreciation for both the original and the remix of the hit song, adding that that the real crime is Plies not releasing the full version.
