On Wednesday (Mar. 18), a Vine of the rapper (which had been uploaded earlier in the week) quickly spread online, with millions of loops clip and lots of tweets about it -- and with good reason. It's at once fascinating, funny and addictive.
I think I let this loop a few dozen times when I first saw and it. There's something so mesmerizing about it.
The question everyone seems to be asking is, "What is Iggy saying?"

< ;p>LITERALLY CANNOT DECIPHER ONE WORD FROM THE NEW IGGY VINE CYRING— CamRon (@CamColeCoop) March 18, 2015
It turns out she's rapping lyrics from 2012's "D.R.U.G.S.," which previously made headlines for it's opening lines: "Tire marks, tire marks, finish line with the fire marks/ When the relay starts I’m a runaway slave, master/ Sh-ttin’ on the past gotta spit it like a pastor."
Here's what she's actually saying in the part of the song from the video, according to Genius: "Pitchfork point better pass me the joint/ Gotta twist this beat, I’mma sprang my joint/ Straight crack rock, go to the pop-pop/ Pumo Jiggy Rap City, no Tiggy, yeah shorty do illa’ I’m raw no Digga’."
When reading along, you can kinda get that. Still, the once you press play, the fun don't stop.
So, yeah. There we have it.
