About

“Rack City”is a west coast hip-hop song by American rapper Tyga that has inspired numerous parody videos and image macros based on the phrasal template “(X) City, Bitch, (X) (X) City, Bitch.”

Origin

The song was written by Tyga and produced by DJ Mustard for the Well Done 2 mixtape released on July 18th, 2011.[4] The music video for the track was uploaded to YouTube on September 8th, 2011 and accumulated over 33 million views in six months. Months later in January 2012, Tyga released another music video for the official remix version, which featured numerous high-profile rappers including Wale, Fabolous, Young Jeezy, Meek Mill and T.I.

On December 5th, 2011, the first Urban Dictionary definition was submitted by user Suburbanite2012, who claimed that “Rack City” was a slang term for Las Vegas, Nevada. However, the validity of the entry remains disputed.



Spread

The “Rack City Bitch Fanfiction” Tumblr[9] blog was created, dedicated to a fanfiction story about Tyga and his “first love,” on December 2nd, 2011. On January 2rd, 2012, YouTuber FrankTwitchy uploaded a video titled “Me and my grandma dancing to Rack City” featuring a young man and his grandmother performing a lip dub of the Tyga track. The following day, the video was posted on the Internet humor site BuzzFeed[5] and managed to receive nearly 12 million views in two months.

On February 24th, YouTuber BarBaKer uploaded a parody video “Fat Hungry Bitch” which received over 650,000 views within 17 days.

Derivatives related to the song have continued to spread on sites like Tumblr[2], FunnyJunk[6], YouTube[1] and deviantArt.[8] A Facebook page for the song has received 3,123 likes as of March 12th, 2012.
