As surprising as it may sound, there are plenty of guys who buy the renowned Birkin bags made by Hermès. Drake is building a collection of Birkin bags for his future wife (an epic reverse dowry), and Young Thug discusses buying the bags for his own romantic relationships in the song “I Bought Her.” Then there are guys who actually wear those Hermès bags: P.J. Tucker, Gunna, Pharrell, Travis Scott, and Rhude designer Rhuigi Villasenor are all fans. Rhude designer Rhuigi Villaseor is a fan as well. There is now, as a result of the efforts of Lil Uzi Vert, an anthem for the men who are devoted to their handbags.
This past Friday, Uzi released his newest extended play (EP), titled Red & White, which features the song “Glock In My Purse.” Uzi may be the first rapper to put on for fellas who want to retain those acquired purses for themselves, despite the fact that there have been plenty of paeans from rappers about buying bags for others, such as the aforementioned “I Bought Her,” Gunna’s “Baby Birkin,” or “Jane” by the Migos. When considered as a totality, “Glock In My Purse” presents a convincing case for men to put their hands in women’s purses. You can trust him when he says that this is the correct method to carry a bag in the style of Lil Uzi Vert.
First things first: try not to think of it as a purse. “No, this is not a purse / How the fuck is this a purse? / Ain’t no lip gloss in it / Only lean, Penicillin,” she exclaimed. Where a pocketbook is sold at a store is less important to Uzi than the contents of the purse and the state of mind of the person who carries it. Don’t allow the burden of your purse to drag you down! You should put your own things in there. That’s lean for Uzi, and those blocks are the titular ones.
Uzi is aware that he will face a significant number of challenges while he is attempting to convince males to carry purses. He devotes multiple verses to the sole purpose of attempting to get guys to accept the concept of a purse, saying things like “I don’t think it’s a purse / Look at it like a bag.” Are you starting to feel better already? He then continues, making a reference to a topic that most guys are more familiar with by saying, “If it had two straps, you would call it a backpack.” You’ve had some experience in carrying heavy loads! But now that we are comfortable with the concept of a purse—and this is the most crucial aspect—it is time for us to embrace it wholeheartedly. This is the most important element. In point of fact, now that you know it’s a purse, you’re actually relieved about it: “But it had one strap (Phew)”
In addition to teaching you how to use a pocketbook, Uzi’s crash course also includes some other valuable life lessons. The phrase “don’t stop distributing the wealth” comes to mind. Even if Uzi is currently purchasing bags for himself, this does not mean that he must stop purchasing bags for other people. In one of his raps, he says, “Every time I buy my b***h a bag, I buy myself a bag (Phew)”. “Fifty for her luggage, forty-five for my bag, fifty for my bag.”
Uzi gives plenty of introductory counsel to purse-hesitant males in his song “Glock In My Purse,” but a bag hymn isn’t complete without some deeper cuts, so he also included those in his song. In addition to this, the rapper demonstrates an understanding of the opaque market that surrounds these purses. Uzi, just like every other Hermès collector, is aware that the Birkin and Kelly bags are not easily accessible from the boutiques of the French house. According to a report by Rachel Tashjian in the year 2020, many males who acquire bags do it by going through dealers on Instagram or WhatsApp. Dave Oancea, a big Birkin collector who is better known by his nickname Vegas Dave, stated, “I have go-to [dealers].” Because they requested that I keep that information hidden, they are upset that I am disclosing their identity. Uzi also has a dealer, whose identity he only hints at when he says things like, “We get the Birkins from the girl out in Miami (Ayy)”
