St. Louis rap newcomer said Complex how she came up with the song’s most quoted line, ‘I’m out of town, Tuggin’ with my rounds / My pink coochie, my brown bootyhole. She said it was her very first freestyle: “When I rap, I just say things about myself. I’ll describe anything… So I was really out of town, fighting with my rounds, and then I’m like, “My pink coochie, my brown asshole.” It was true! So I said it.
