Ray J made waves this week with the release of his new song, "I Hit It First." The cover art for the single, which shows a pixelated image of a woman, and the lyrics of the song were widely understood to reference Ray J's history with Kim Kardashian, with whom he infamously recorded a sex tape. ( The cover art image is based on a shot of Kardashian wearing a bikini ; it's pixelated to look like West's album cover for "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," as Global Grind noted.) Ray J seems to reference Kardashian's relationship with rapper Kanye West, by singing, "She might move on to rappers and ballplayers / But we all know I hit it first ... I had her head going North and her ass going South / But now baby chose to go West." In the chorus of the song, Ray J boasts "I hit it, I hit it, I hit it." Immediately after the news of Ray J's single broke, the singer took to Twitter to address the track, saying that it's "not that serious."

Ray J taunts Kanye West in new single, 'I Hit It First'
We're sure he was definitely at No. 101. So now Ray J stays relevant by badgering the hilariously more successful Kardashian on Twitter because he has no other means of power. He has recently moved onto attempting to incite West by reminding everyone that he once had sex with a woman before Kanye did. Kanye, to his credit, has yet to respond to Ray J his mere existence says more to Ray J than any words could.Every passing day refutes Ray J's insane assertion that he "put [Kardashian] on," but his imepnding "single" has pushed his desperation to its lowest depths. <br>Source: http://www.spin.com/articles/ray-j-i-hit-it-first-stream-kanye-west-kim-kardashian/

Ray J to Kanye: 'I Hit It First'
But former Rhodes Scholar Ray J insists that we are wrong and that I Hit It First is not about his sexual escapades with a pre-famous Kim Kardashian at all. If this is the case -- which it most assuredly is given Ray J's record for intellectual and moral decency -- then we must dig deeper and understand what Ray J truly "hit first." A close-reading of the lyrics to I Hit It First yielded a few possibilities. See also: The Ballad of Kim Kardashian and The-Dream: A Speculative Musical "She might move on to rappers and ballplayers/ But we all know I hit it first/ I hop in the club and boppers show love/ And I don't even put in work/ I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it first. I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it, I hit it first." These introductory lyrics to I Hit It First suggest that Ray J may have been the first (and greatest) player of the late-90's cult-toy-darling, Bop It ! Ray J's reliance on words like "hit," "hop," and "boppers," as well as his claim that he can do it all without "even put[ting] in work" makes the Bop It thesis incredibly persuasive. <br>Source: http://blogs.villagevoice.com/music/2013/04/ray_j_i_hit_it_first_really_about.php
