Song of the Day #2,658: ‘Hit the Quan’ – iHeartMemphis

I_love_memphis_hit_quanOMI’s ‘Cheerleader’ sits in Billboard’s 14th spot, but that’s the last repeat we’ll encounter this week. At #15 is iHeartMemphis (or iLoveMemphis, depending on how you choose to pronounce it) with the dance track ‘Hit the Quan.’

iHeartMemphis is a rapper from, you guessed it, Memphis and this is his biggest (perhaps only) hit to date. It’s one of those tracks (like Silento’s ‘Watch Me’) that catches fire mostly because of what other people do with it.

Like Heaven King, a 5-year-old YouTube star whose dancing has landed her on Ellen. Here she is, hitting the Quan.

[Intro]
Yeah, yeah
(Hey, Buck Nasty, I like your beats!)
I finna, I finna, finna show you how to

[Hook]
Hit the Quan, hit the Quan, hit the Quan, hit the Quan
I said get down low and swing your arm
I said get down low and hit the Quan
I’m finna show you how to
Hit the Quan, hit the Quan, hit the Quan, hit the Quan
I said get down low and swing your arm
I said get down low and hit the Quan

[Verse 1]
I paper chase then vanish
Hit the Quan on her make her boyfriend panic
I heart Memphis, but I also love dancing
I done took off on em, I don’t plan on landing
I call shots just do it like Nike
No FaceTime but the people want to Skype me
If I do time then who would really write me
I stay on y’all mind but oh I think they like me
Clean pair of sneaks, with a designer belt
Please watch your step cause I’m feeling myself
Throw a flag on the play, man somebody get the ref
Go blah la la la low, man somebody get some help
Pulled up on the block

[Hook]
Hit the Quan, hit the Quan, hit the Quan, hit the Quan
I said get down low and swing your arm
I said get down low and hit the Quan
I’m finna show you how to
Hit the Quan, hit the Quan, hit the Quan, hit the Quan
I said get down low and swing your arm
I said get down low and hit the Quan

[Verse 2]
Pull up on the block and do the dance like crazy
This chick is hella hot but I know this chick crazy
If I think she not then that makes me crazy
We are both thots so we are both are crazy
Flexing always on my agenda
Your whole team rats, your CEO is Master Splinter
Bout to hit the Quan and turn that girl into a member
Now my whole team flexing, I think we got a winner
People want to dap it up but they can’t get none from me
I went to jail and snap it up, at least I had bum money
People wanna walk around me tryna steal my lingo
Just make sure when you talk about me you say he’s doing his thing though

[Hook]
Hit the Quan, hit the Quan, hit the Quan, hit the Quan
I said get down low and swing your arm
I said get down low and hit the Quan
I’m finna show you how to
Hit the Quan, hit the Quan, hit the Quan, hit the Quan
I said get down low and swing your arm
I said get down low and hit the Quan

    A rapper from Memphis? Does he draw from the angst of growing up on dry rub Bbq?
