Album: Kings Of Crunk (2002)
Charted: 10 2

Songfacts®:

  • This is a song about going to a club, getting really drunk and watching females dance suggestively for your delight. The rappers are enjoying their celebrity status in the club and are asking the girls to "Get Low" and shake their butts down to the dancefloor. The implication is that sex will follow, as the chorus of "Skeet skeet skeet..." refers to ejaculation. (Nelly also slipped the term into a 2002 hit - in "Hot In Herre" he raps about "Looking for a good time to shoot my skeet").
  • This became a huge club hit and introduced the "Crunk" sound ("Crunk" = "Crazy Drunk"). The track was produced by Lil' Jon, who brought the Crunk to Usher's "Yeah!" and had several hits of his own using a similar beat, including "Salt Shaker" and "Snap Yo Fingers."
  • Comedian Dave Chappelle did a popular bit about the raunchiness of this song, and how despite the hedonistic, misogynist lyrics, many women dance to it anyway. Chappelle did a famous impersonation of Lil' Jon where he would rarely speak except to say "Yeah!" as in the Usher song. Chappelle's impersonation became more famous than what Lil' Jon actually says on his recordings, to the point that Jon would start saying "Yeah!" like Chappelle's impression to appease fans and reporters.
  • In 2003, Lil' Jon released remixes of this song with Busta Rhymes and Elephant Man on vocals.
  • This song is part of a popular scene in the 2009 film The Proposal, where Sandra Bullock encounters Betty White in the woods, and White asks her to improvise a chant. Bullock tries to come up with something, and ends up singing the lyrics to this song, including the famous line, "'Til the sweat drop down my balls."

  • Kristi from Vegas I googled how many times does Little John say yeah in this song and this is what I got so if anybody knows the answer let me know.
  • Sioraf from Macroon, IrelandAh the internet, where pages about things they DON'T like are the first places people will go.
  • Alex from Boston, MaIn the remix of the song "Get Low (Remix)" they say, "I know your just waiting for me to say your name. Cut the check, first." They are referring to music producer Scott Storch, who helped produce the remix and was starting to have financial problems that led to him being unable to pay artists to give him shout-outs. He NEVER ended up getting a shout-out, and they implanted this verse in where his shout-out should have been
  • Al from Philidelphia, Pamusic is like candy,you have to take all the rappers out.

  • Marissa from Is This Optional?, OhDude, you are so right . . . but you gotta admit, the important thing to most people is the beat. Unfortunately, rap has evolved -- or devolved -- into something that's only good to shake your @$$ to. However, if it weren't for (c)rap like this, what would they play at school dances? Hmmm. . . maybe something GOOD? Perish the thought!
  • Wilfred from Melbourne, AustraliaWowweeee... It took so, so much "talent" to perform this piece of crap... Sadly, rap is all the same these days - how many ho's you have, how much bling you have, and how you plan to exhibit it all. Sheesh. Get some talent, people.
