Cooked Food

Album: Growing Over Life (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • Wretch 32 draws parallels here between a sexy woman and cooked chicken:

    Now everywhere I go, I'm dropping bread on chicken heads
    I'm happy that I now see you all over the ends
    Cause I can see the power in them legs
    Think I can get some salad with them breasts?
    If you can still fly, I'll stay with you till the ends


    Wretch 32 explained the track to Billboard magazine:

    "You know that typical black joke where people are always talking about how black people love chicken and that's like the first icebreaker to smooth out [the situation]? It's just one of those things that I kind of wanted to trick people because it was something they used to say to throw shade. It became some kind of a joke, so I kind of wanted to write a record about chicken and some people didn't realize what I was talking about, but they just loved the song, and wanted to get their hands on whatever I was talking about, thinking it was a joke. It's just something that I love to throw in the universe just to trick people into our ways of thinking."
