Transcript: Yung Shaggy | Nov 17, 2019

A teenage boy enters his bedroom, grabs his phone and starts rapping.

He sings YUNG SHAGGY
HE'S BEEN EATING ASS
AND RAPPING FAST
THE VAST CAST IN
MY LAST CLASS, OH SHIT

He says IF MY PARENTS EVER HEAR THAT,
I AM DISOWNED.
(RAP BEAT PLAYING)

A black slate appears with the caption "Yung Shaggy."

(CLEARING THROAT)

He says HI, I'M WILLIS AND I'M 16.

Willis has slightly long straight light brown hair and wears jeans, an army green V-neck T-shirt, sunglasses hanging in his collar, a black sweatshirt wrapped around his waist, and a pendant necklace.

He says I'M A RAPPER JUST
'CAUSE I CAN'T SING, REALLY.

In his room, he records and sings ASK MY BITCH
ASK MY BITCH, BUY THE BITCH,
I ATE THE BITCH

He says RAP, THAT'S JUST TALKING FAST.
POP AND ROCK MUSIC,
THAT'S SINGING.
THERE'S A PART
OF ME THAT'S LIKE,
"YEAH, I WANNA GET FAMOUS,
I WANNA JUST, LIKE,
"GET ON THIS GRIND,
GET UP THERE."
BUT THERE'S A PART OF ME
THAT'S ALSO LIKE, "WHATEVER."
IF I DID GET ALL THE, LIKE,
YOU KNOW, RAP MONEY,
I MIGHT GO CRAZY AND JUST BUY
RANDOM CRAP WITH IT,
BUY CARS, HOUSES, BUY ICE TEA,
YOU KNOW, YOU NAME IT.
(RAP BEAT PLAYING)

Lounging in his couch, he short a money gun.

He says NO BREATHING TIME FOR SPENDING,
JUST ALL AT THE SAME TIME,
ALL WITHIN AN HOUR. POOF.

At work in a fast food restaurant, he says SURE. ANYTHING ELSE WITH THAT?

A customer says NO, THAT'S IT.

Willis says WORKING AT WENDY'S IS,
YEAH, MY FIRST JOB.
WORKING THERE IS HARDER
THAN I THOUGHT.
I EARN SYNTH MONEY.
IT'S, LIKE, ENOUGH TO, LIKE, YOU
KNOW, BUY THE RIGHTS TO BEATS,
BUY ICE TEA, YOU KNOW,
LUNCH EVERY SO OFTEN.
WENDY'S SPONSORS ME,
I'LL DO A RAP ABOUT WENDY'S,
I'LL DO A RAP ABOUT, LIKE,
THE BACONATOR
OR WHATEVER SPECIAL
THEY HAVE GOING ON.
IT WOULD JUST BE LIKE, "WOW, A
COMPANY WANTS TO WORK WITH ME.
"I JUST THOUGHT I WAS SHIT."
IT'S WENDY'S, SO I DON'T KNOW
WHAT THEIR TASTE
IN MUSIC IS LIKE.
BUT...
(RAP BEAT PLAYING)

He raps and says HUH, YEAH
TICK-TOCK GOES THE CLOCK
IT GETS TO TIME
TO START THE DAY
SMOKING GRASS AND GET TO CLASS
LIKE 30 MINUTES LATE
(RAPPING INDISTINCTLY)
JUST ONE OF THOSE DAYS
AND THERE
AIN'T NO OTHER WAY
BUT GETTING
HIGH AND LOW TODAY

He says MY FIRST LIVE PERFORMANCE,
I DON'T THINK I'M NERVOUS.
UH, BUT I AM AT THE SAME TIME.
I SPENT MONEY ON BEATS FOR THIS.
THAT'S WENDY'S MONEY,
THAT'S ME SCRUBBING GRILLS,
DOWN THE DRAIN FOR NO REASON.
(GROANING LOUDLY)

He says ALL RIGHT, WELL,
THAT WAS PRACTICING.
WHAT TIME DO I GO OUT?
OH, I GO OUT IN,
LIKE, 12 MINUTES.

He then says to the audience UM, YEAH, SO, YOU CAN

BUT, LIKE, I DON'T WANT TO BREAK
THIS AND PAY FOR IT, SO...

A woman in the audience says WE LOVE YOU!
(CHEERING)

Willis says I AIN'T REALLY GOT NO IDEA
WHAT I WANT TO DO
WHEN I GROW UP.
I COULD LOOK BACK AND BE LIKE,
"DAMN, I WAS A STUPID KID.
"WHY THE HELL WAS I
TRYING TO BE A RAPPER?
"WHAT THE HELL KIND OF
NAME IS 'YUNG SHAGGY?'
"WHY THE HELL DID I BUY A
BITCOIN CHAIN? WHAT THE HELL?"
OR I COULD LOOK BACK
AND I COULD BE LIKE,
"YUP, EARLY STAGES
OF GOD RIGHT HERE."
GROWING UP'S GONNA REALLY SUCK.

A raps song says HUH, YEAH
