A tribute to Justice Ginsburg in the style of Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy”

Yeah—this song is dedicated to all the judges that told me I’d never amount to nothin’ because of my gender, to all the people that lived in their ivory towers that I was hustlin’ in front of, that tried to buy me off by putting Susan B. Anthony on the dollar, and all the women in the struggle, you know what I’m sayin’?

It was all a dream
Back when I argued Reed v. Reed
Then once they put Sandy D up in the Dub D.C.
Janet Reno made the call
When Slick Willie chose me to sit; and now that I’ve been installed
I rock the black robe with my jabot
Sippin’ tea while reading amici tales of woe
Way back, when I caught a lot of flak I held back
Now look where I’m at
Remember Frankfurter, duh-ha, duh-ha
He never thought a woman could go this far
Now I’m in the limelight ’cause I decide right
Court has moved right, but my dissents get cites
Born sinner, but definitely a winner
Defending women’s rights ’cause unlike them, I’d been “her”
Peace to Willie, Jimmy C, and guess who?
Erwin Griswold, the ACLU
I’m blowing up the glass ceiling for good
Call the chamber, same number same hood
It’s all good
Uh…and if you don’t know, now you know, Nino

You’ve been fighting for equal rights
From Kiki to RBG, you’ve reached those heights
You always fight, for equal justice
A diva in our eyes, originalists can’t touch this

I made the change from a Cambridge dame
To up close and personal with the New York game
CLS I teach, they don’t just give tenure track away
Spread love it’s the Brooklyn way
The Southern District could not resist me but
Firms they dismissed me
Now they write petitions to assist me
I never thought it could happen, this SCOTUS stuff
I was too used to that glass ceiling and such
Now I’m riding elephants with my boy Scalia
Next trip to India with Sasha and Malia?
Pimped out my chambers, looks so chic
Sold out seats to hear Bader G speak
Grantin’ cert without fear
Only taking cases we really wanna hear
Lunches, brunches, life tenure, we cool, but
Considered a fool ’cause I left Harvard Law School
Stereotypes of a lady misunderstood
But it’s still all good
Uh…and if you don’t know, now you know, Nino


Adarand, Fisher, Ledbetter, Carhart
When those guys are wrong, I’ll step in and do my part
Shelby’s messed up, but my girls back me up
Windsor & Perry, now we got gay nups
VMI, What’s up with that?
Looked like discrimination from where I sat
Not intent but effects
Arguing every day, getting Hillary’s texts
We don’t need Mitt Romney’s binders
Qualified ladies, check this bench you’ll find her
The time will come when I’ll have to retire
But not so fast, this Court’s my empire
When Bush v. Gore called the presidency
I called that an untested prophecy
Sandra Day left a better day
But that can’t be the extent of our legac-ay

Uh, damn right I’m gonna speak my mind
‘Cause if we can’t move ahead then we’re behind
But it’s all good

[And if you don’t know, now you know, Nino]

Representin’ all ladies on the bench, Supreme Court Justice
