You better say that, Juvenile! In classic New Orleans-bounce fashion, “Vax That Thang Up” delivers the same level bars you know and love from the original. Only this time, the subject matter is slightly different.


A snippet of the chorus, as rapped by Juvenile:

Girl, you looks good. Won’t you vax that thang up?

You’s a handsome young brother, won’t you vax that thang up?

Dating in real life, you need to vax that thang up.

Feeling freaky all night? You need to vax that thang up.

Mannie Fresh’s verse:

I know you can’t stand it, no holding hands chick.

But when we get the shot, we gon’ be romancing.

Girl you can be the queen, after quarantine

We could meet up at the spot and we could do the thing.

And of course, I couldn’t leave you without Mia X’s call to action:

“Now, now, now if you wanna get sticky and hot—go, go go, go and get the shot.”

I’d also just like to point out that there’s a shot of a woman in the video wearing a “No vaxxing, No vucking shirt,” and wow. Just wow. I love us, for real.


I don’t think I had Juvenile redoing “Back That Thang Up” to incentivize young adults to get vaccinated on my 2021 bingo card, but I’d be lying if I said this didn’t put a smile on my face.

I’d also be lying if I didn’t think that Juve may have a career comeback on his hands. It’s vaccinations now; maybe his next cause should be environmental justice next? “Save da Ocean for Me” to the tune of “Slow Motion” has a nice ring to it, dontcha think?
