Kevin Gates Loves Eating Groceries
Remember when Jhene Aiko boldly sang, “But he got to eat the booty like groceries”? Well, she openly revealed that Kevin Gates served as the catalyst for that poignant line.
“When I got the song, obviously I’ve known Omarion since even before he was in B2K,” she says. “I loved the song, and of course I said, yes, that I wanted to do it. Just playing with the rhyme scheme. The line of ‘Post To Be’ reminded me of the Kevin Gates Vines where he’s talking about booty. I sat down with Micah Powell, who is a writer I’ve worked with for a long time. I sat down with him, and I was like, ‘Whatever we say, I really want to say something about eating the booty.’ He keeps saying in the Vines—’You ’posed to eat the booty.’” – Jhene Aiko
