Consent is cool.
Lil Wayne was the latest musical guest on this week’s Saturday Night Live.
The rapper was joined by Future and pop singer Halsey in a skit addressing consent called “Permission.” In the skit, The Booty Kings (Chris Redd and Kenan Thompson), Uncle Butt (Pete Davidson), Lil Wayne and Future rap about loving women and getting permission to do so.
Some standout lines from the skit:
“Times have changed; we on some new, respectful stuff.”
“We would love to touch yo booty, but we will respect your voice.”
“If you insist, we gon’ treat that booty right, cause we allies in this b*tch.”
“I’m on a mission for that ass but first, I need permission.”
“On a hunt for consent like a bounty.”
“Hendrix steal your girl, but only with her permission.”
“Respect is the game, and booty is the scrimmage / And I play good defense if that booty get offended.”
Comedy skits are cool, but let’s hope men in hip-hop and hollywood actually take heed to these lines.
Wayne also performed “Uproar” alongside Swizz Beatz and “Can’t Be Broken,” with Halsey off his latest album, Tha Carter V.
