Lil’ Flip’s 2004 song “Sunshine” is a classic tale of what happens when a woman falls in love with a thug: private jets, luxury cars and trips around the world. And according to Lil Flip, there are some pretty standard guidelines you have to follow if you’re going to be his girl: be a freak in the sheets, cook him food, pick him up from the airport at the right time, that kind of thing.
But what makes “Sunshine” such a notable song for thugs is Lil’ Flip’s complete disregard for milk despite appearing to buy it regularly:
I need a lady in the streets but a freak in the sheets
That know how to cook cause a n**** like to eat
Spaghetti, shrimp and steak and I’ll adore you
I’ll treat you like milk, I’ll do nothing but spoil you
It’s a little concerning that Lil’ Flip seems to continuously buy milk just to watch it spoil. Why is he wasting his time and money buying it in the first place? We’ve all bought milk with good intentions, just to watch some of spoil before we can finish the carton. But to buy it with no intention of ever drinking it? That’s messed up.
Lil’ Flip clearly understands what he’s doing, so this practice might satisfy an underlying fetish of his. Either that or he legitimately thinks the only purpose of buying milk is to watch it spoil. And, of course, I’m not very deep in thug culture, so it’s also possible that spoiling milk intentionally provides some sort of thug credibility.
