Riff: Nelly – “Hey Porsche”

Mar 6, 2013

I think you know what I wanna do/Come on let me slide under so I can work on, work on you

from Hey Porsche lyrics by Nelly

Nelly’s street cred might have flown out the window when he started duetting with Tim McGraw. But this is on another level. Making Flo Rida sound like Nas, this dumbed-down hip-pop number actually seems to think it’s being clever by using a car as a metaphor for a girl; [LISTEN].
