Like a Cheese Stick

I put on a radio station from the TV that was called Y2K Hits. Obviously I'm not caught up on what's cool nowadays because a song came on that I thought was peculiar...for being a "hit", especially during this day in age. Yet, this random hip-hop song was totally my style. Frankly, I was surprised that I had never heard of it before...because the song's chorus was just that spectacular.

The chorus that I heard went like this:

Now I'm feeling so fly like a cheese stick.
Like a cheese stick,
like a cheese stick.
Now I'm feeling so fly like a cheese stick.

What has gotten into hip-hop artists now to where they go from "singing" about money, skanks, cars, bullets, and ghettos to about mozzarella sticks? I could really get into this new fad they're in right now. Singing about food? Sounds good to me--especially if their next song is about pizza, cake, or mashed potatoes (wouldn't that be interesting?).

I just HAD to look up these lyrics because I thought the lyrics were just too good to be true. Much to my disappointment,

the actual lyrics went like this:

Now I'm feeling so fly like a G6
Like a G6,
like a G6.
Now I'm feeling so fly like a G6.

I see hip-hop artists have stuck with their same old topics of money, skanks, cars, bullets, ghettos, and the like. Can't they ever go out of the box just once and make a song about mozzarella sticks? I liked that version so much better. Yo, G's, you have let me down. Until you start singing about cheese sticks, pizza, cake, or mashed potatoes, then for now I'm going to stick to my own little world and listen to cheesy songs.


  1. I don't even know what a G6 is but I think it was one of the portable classrooms at my high school. Being a portable, it wasn't very fly at all. The air conditioning sucked.

    Long live cheese sticks!

  2. At first I thought a G6 was like, a gangster dude worth the power of six gangsters...then I went to Wikipedia and discovered their song is actually about a jet. When you think about it, "so fly like a G6" actually makes a lot more sense than the whole "so fly like a cheese stick" thing--unless, of course, there was a food fight they were singing about.

  3. I much prefer the cheese stick version, though it does make me hungry.

  4. Hiphop artists (at least the more famous ones) would be much better off rapping about cheese sticks in my opinion. Less violence and misogyny at least.

    Fickle Cattle

  5. Your version is so much better! Looking forwards to the cake sequel ;)

  6. I am diggin' your blog Shanimal. :-) Thanks for stopping by mine, too!

  7. We heard it the same way and were driving around and our whole family was singing "Like a Cheese Stick". What the heck is a G6?

  8. G6 is a Pontiac G6 vehicle......I know it makes litle sense still!!

  9. G6 as in a jet, the best of the best, fastest of them all. At around at $58 million... Fly as in jets fly and as in cool/hip. Its just a metaphor.

  10. I found your blog during a desperate search for my husband to find the cheesestick song that is constantly playing at the gym. He too is very sad, as a song about a cheese stick is far more enticing.

  11. Too funny! Several years ago, there was an entire book of misheard song lyrics called " 'Scuse Me While I Kiss This Guy," a lyric often misheard in Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze." I find these things hilarious.

    I would eat cheese sticks every day if they didn't have, like, a million calories. I also like Bosco sticks, where the put the cheese inside a breadstick.


Thank you for reading and have yourself a great day. Or night. Whatever.
