("Hold my bag, B--h/ Hold your bag/ Do not see this s-t/ I'm a spaz/I'm about knock somebody out/ Yo where my best friend/ She is the only one who can talk me off the deep end," she says over the Beastie Boys' "Girls".

"Spaz" doesn't necessarily mean crazy or freaked out. It's an ableist slur. It's 2022. One disappointed listener said, "Do better."
