About How Many Licks?

"How Many Licks?" is a song by American rapper Lil' Kim featuring vocals by American musician Sisqó from her second studio album, The Notorious K. I. M. (2000). It was released as the record's second single in 2000. Mario Winans and Sean Combs produced "How Many Licks?", and wrote it with Lil' Kim and Sisqó. The hip hop song samples the Knight Rider theme song, with lyrics expressing a woman's desire for oral sex and her sexual relationships with a variety of men. The chorus is a reference to the advertising slogan for Tootsie Pops. A remix by The Neptunes has additional vocals from American artists Kelis, Lil' Cease, and Snoop Dogg. "How Many Licks?" was praised by music critics after its release and in retrospective reviews; the Neptunes remix also received positive reviews. However, African-American studies professor Mark Anthony Neal criticized the song's treatment of black female sexuality. Commentators compared its content to Trinidadian-American rapper Nicki Minaj's 2014 single, "Anaconda". "How Many Licks?" peaked at number 75 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and charted in several other countries, but was not as commercially successful as Lil' Kim's previous releases.

(Sisqo:)
Hold up
So what you're saying is, oh
(Niggaz got me pissed like Lil' Kim)
You want to get freaky again, aight
A-ooh-ah-ooh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
(Lil' Kim:)
I've been a lot of places, seen a lot of faces
Ah hell I even f*** with different races
A white dude - his name was John
He had a Queen Bee Rules tattoo on his arm, uh
He asked me if I'd be his date for the prom
And he'd buy me a horse, a Porsche and a farm
Dan my nigga from Down South
Used to like me to spank him and cum in his mouth
And Tony he was Italian (Uh-huh)
And he didn't give a f*** (Uh-huh)
That's what I liked about him
He ate my pussy from dark till the morning
Called his girl up and told her we was bonin'
Puerto Rican papi, used to be a Deacon
But now he be sucking me off on the weekend
And this black dude I called King Kong
He had a big as* dick and a hurricane tongue

(Sisqo:)
So, how many licks does it take till you get to the centre of the?
('Cause I've got to know)
How many licks does it take till you get to the centre of the?
(Tell me)
How many licks does it take till you get to the centre of the?
(Oh, oh)
How many licks does it take till you get to the centre of the?
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

(Lil' Kim:)
This verse goes out to my niggaz in jail
Beatin' they d*cks to the double-X-L; Magazine (uhh)
You like how I look in the aqua green? Get your Vaseline
Roll some weed with some tissue and close your eyes
Then imagine your tongue in between my thighs
Baby...ohh...yes ohh!
Jailer...open up...cell, block, eight
All right nigga, that's enough
Stop, look and listen; get back to your position
Kim got your dick hard, startin' fights in the yard
Hotter than a Pop Tart fresh out of the toaster
Niggaz do anything for a Lil' Kim poster
Eses, Bloods, Crips, all the thugs
Up North in the hole, they all want to know

(Sisqo:)
How many licks does it take till you get to the centre of the?
(Tell me, ha)
How many licks does it take till you get to the centre of the?
(Tell me, oh yeah)
How many licks does it take till you get to the centre of the?
(Oh, oh)
How many licks does it take till you get to the centre of the?
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)

(Lil' Kim:)
If you drivin' in the street, hold on to your seat
Niggaz, grab your meat while I ride the beat
And if you see a shiny black Lamborghini fly by ya
(Shoom!) That's me the Knight Rider
Dressed in all black with the gat in the lap
Lunatics in the street - gotta keep the heat
Sixty on the bezel, a hundred on the rings
Sittin' pretty baby with a Cash Money bling
12 A.M. I'm on the way to club
After three bottles I'll be ready to f***
Some niggaz even put me on their grocery lists
Right next to the whip cream and box of chocolates
Designer pussy, my shit come in flavours
High-class taste niggaz got to spend paper
Lick it right the first time or you gotta do it over
Like it's rehearsal for a Tootsie commercial

(Sisqo:)
How many licks does it take till you get to the centre of the?
