Ying Yang Twins' single "Drop" is a catchy tune set to a highly synthesized arrangement full of blips and bleeps with plenty of scratching. There are "bleeps" in another sense on the "Radio" (read: clean) version, which has so many missing words it's hard to follow what the rappers are talking about. Comprehension is a little better in the "Street" version, in which the omissions are filled in with a stream of familiar expletives. The "Instrumental" version places more emphasis on the synthesizer parts, while the a cappella version makes it clear that the rap is about the party life in a club and that "drop" is slang for "dance" or some particular dance move, probably referring to a particular part of the female anatomy.
