The Ying Yang Twins want credit where it's due, and they're not whispering for it. Perhaps since the twins have been under the radar for quite some time, rap fans have begun to attribute the use of "HANH" to today's more relevant artists such as French Montana and Kanye West (both of whom are called out in the song).
On "Sayin My Word," the primary complaint is that use of "HANH" is not attributed to its creators by its adopters. It's no surprise that we've never heard French or Kanye working "Shout out to the Ying Yang Twins!" into any of their songs, but the twins themselves would rather not let this issue rest.
So they ask: "Excuse me Mr. P. Diddy and Jay-Z, you presidents, if your artists use our lyrics, don't that make us relevant?"
Relevant might be a stretch, but one can't deny the legacy of the seemingly ever present "HANH" in today's rap landscape. This year may actually be the ten-year anniversary of "HANH." In that case, congratulations are certainly in order, and perhaps it is time for "HANH" users to acknowledge the ad-lib's pioneers.
But doesn't everyone here owe something to Juvenile, anyway?
