In 2001, Ludacris was one of the biggest rappers in the world. By the time he dropped Word Of Mouf in November, the project was among the year's most anticipated, backed by singles like "Rollout," "Area Codes," "Saturday," and "Move Bitch." In truth, the entire album is lined full of top-to-bottom bangers, but late-game sex anthem "Freaky Thangs" stands among the upper echelon selections. Shamelessly bawdy, hilarious, and tantalizingly X-Rated, the seductive banger finds Luda and Twista going back and forth over some Bangladesh production.
Up-tempo and lined with Luda's signature wit, the Atlanta legend dubs himself "the ding-a-ling king" with a noted sense of pride. Twista is more than willing to match Luda's energy, calling himself "Mr. Magilla-cutty," seeker of "booties soft as silly putty." The track is masterful in its arrangement, and every new verse finds the rappers experimenting with different flow schemes, with Luda displaying some true versatility. The pause before he drops "Blouse" is something you don't hear every day. Throw in an incredible piece of spoken word poetry from 4-Ize to close things out - "goonie goo goo, I cut Bigfoots and Wookies" - and "Freaky Thangs" is exactly what you need to spice up your late night routine.
Thick skin so, butter soft I'm rippin the buttons off yo' blouse
Smell the aroma of a dingaling king Ludacris when I'm in yo' house
Check the ratio of men to women and women to men when down south
Hot fellatio, hot jalapenos, holla while they in yo' mouth
