Is “i Hit It First” A Cry For Help? A Grief Counselor Assesses Ray J’s State Of Mind

Standard

As the old adage goes: Breaking up is hard to do. And maybe even harder than breaking up with someone is the path to getting over an http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ulioyBmVyE old relationship, and moving on with one’s life. For evidence, look no further than the recent antics of Ray J. Last week, Brandy’s brother released the art for a new single, subtly titled ” I Hit It First ,” with the even more subtle move of using a pixelatedphoto of Kim Kardashian (who, you may be aware, is dating someone named Kanye West and is currently with child) for the cover art. Ray J’s claim isn’t wrong. As we all know, Ms.Kardashian initially rose to fame following the 2007 leak of a sex tape (recorded in 2003) featuring herself and Ray J. The lyrics of “I Hit It First” detail Ray J’s claim, and what’s happened since then: “I had her head going north and her ass going south/But now baby chose to go West.” Why make the song? Ten years after Ray J and Kim Kardashian consummated their love in full view, it seems that Ray J’s still working out his issues over it in public. But “I Hit It First” seems less like a stupid, macho brag of a song, and more like a cry for help.
