Drake's BBW line, as explained to a guy on OKCupid

So Drake dropped a line about BBWs, or Big Beautiful Women, in Nikki Minaj's "Only". His line is in the 2nd verse.

Yeah, that’s right, I like my girls BBW, yeah
Type to wanna suck you dry and then eat some lunch with you
Yeah, so thick that everybody else in the room is so uncomfortable
Ass on Houston Texas, but the face look just like Clair Huxtable

Here's my analysis as sent to a guy on OKCupid:

"Hot, radical, and also pretty problematic.

Problematic largely because of the use of the fat girls like to suck dick and eat stereotype, probably used more for laughs than expression of affection. And it wouldn't be so problematic if we didn't live in a society where fat girls are simultaneously sexually stigmatized (ex. Fat girls loooove to eat) and sexually exploited (ex. Fat girls love to suck dick because they are hungry and desperate) (see also: hogging).

At the same time it's pretty hot and affirming for a desirable male celebrity to express preference for  fatter girls and not just "thick" girls, which usually means tits n ass with a small waist.

It could be seen as offensive that he says fat girls make people uncomfortable. However, I see it as radical truth. My body *does* make people uncomfortable, so it is actually a radical validation of my own experience. He also revels in the other people's discomfort and is not apologetic about it. Like, you uncomfortable, but fuck ya."
