People Want Gucci Mane Lemonade at Their Funerals

Hot 107.9 Birthday Bash 14

In the winter of  2009, rapper Gucci Mane released an ode to all things yellow with his popular song, “Lemonade.”  Thanks to the song’s energetic beat and catchy chorus, it became an almost instant underground hit.  In a review of the song, The Washington Post gave potential listeners an extremely accurate depiction of the song by stating, “Expect to hear the delirious kick of this song beneath rolled-up windows all winter long. Over sparkling piano trills and growling bass, Gucci counts off his earthly possessions, all of which appear to come in a shade of yellow: jewelry, wall-to-wall carpeting, a yacht, even a little yellow Corvette.

It’s not rote boasting. It’s the sound of a beleaguered rap star outlining what happens when life hands him lemons.” Although Gucci Mane’s lemon themed masterpiece never achieved great commercial success, it has certainly found a home in the hearts of many listeners.  While we have all learned what to do when life hands us lemons, these Twitter users have provided a lesson in what to do when Gucci Mane hands you lemonade.  Here are five tweets from Gucci Mane fans who want “Lemonade” to be played at their funerals.

In essence, funerals are meant to be events that celebrate life, not death – and what song represents the greatness of life (and the color yellow) more than “Lemonade”?

Why write a will when you can write a tweet boldly proclaiming that Gucci Mane’s “Lemonade” will be your funeral song?

Although most people dread having to think about their funeral, when this user is faced with the question of which song he would like played before he’s lowered six feet deep, he doesn’t hesitate to name Gucci Mane’s “Lemonade.”

Apparently no song could do @bryan_froderman’s funeral montage as much justice as Gucci Mane’s “Lemonade.”

While most people leave this world more silently than they entered it, @coreyannclark is determined to go out with a bang[er].
