McDonald’s will pay rappers dead presidents if they mention the Big Mac in their, er, “songs”. And, I’m assuming, they don’t sing “Back that ass up.”
The one thing that surprised me was that there is an advertising firm (Maven Strategies) dedicated to getting gangsta thugs to name-drop as they bust rhymes.
I think Micky D’s should pay royalties to Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock for their shout-out in “It Takes Two”. After all, Base eloquently waxes: “I like the Whopper, fuck the Big Mac!”
