My girlfriend is from the Los Angeles area, and all her brothers and cousins are total Southern California aznbros. One them is like 19, goes to UC Irvine, is in a dance crew, and is generally a real cool guy. Last time we saw him, I invited him to come hang out with us later that night because I thought it would be sweet to kick it with his aznbro crew in the OC.
He looked bummed for a second, then his face lit up and he said “Sorry man, I can’t- I’m going to Hollywood tonight to get blasted!” We were very confused, and Mrs D said “Huh? Dude, you’re 19, you can’t get into bars there.” He rolled his eyes, disappointed that we were too old to understand his slang, pointed to his forearm, and said “Naw– I’m getting TATTOOED!”
Which brings me to this song by some dude named Kid Ink, a shitty rapper from LA whose gimmick is that he has a lot of tattoos. Mrs D and I laughed for months about him referring to a tattoo as “getting blasted,” but apparently the joke is on us. From what I can tell “getting blasted” is an actual Southern California altbro term, as heard at :45 of this forgettable song.
