During a recent episode of Strahan, Sara & Keke where Megan Thee Stallion participated, she was asked, “Which Hip Hop star created the catchphrase ‘Drive The Boat’ and what does it mean?”
Co-host Michael Strahan said, “I think Megan did.” Fellow co-host Keke Palmer responded, “You got it right. Ding ding ding. Michael, you’re right. It’s about consumption and she’s the originator of it.”
Although Megan didn’t take credit for it, she didn’t name Kodak Black as the originator either.
Now, the incarcerated rapper thought it was time to issue a correction
“I Really Wanna Go Bad On Lil One but I’m Keepin This Shit Pretty,” he caption a clip of the trivia game. “#LetMeDriveTheBoat #FreeTheGoat.”
Kodak used the phrase in the beginning of last year while driving an actual boat, which caused an avalanche of memes. Later in the year, Megan suddenly started to use the same phrase in the lyrics for her single “Hot Girl Summer” featuring Nicki Minaj.
“Real hot girl shit, ayy, I got one or two baes (whoa, whoa)/If you seen it last night, don’t say shit the next day (hey, hey, yeah)/Let me drive the boat, ayy (yeah), kiss me in a Rolls, ayy (yeah, yeah)/It go down on that brown, now we goin’ both ways, ah.”
The Roc Nation raptress has been associated with the catchphrase since then.
