That's an oblique reference to Wu-Tang Clan, a syndicate of rap/hip-hop artists from Staten Island, NY, who appear singly and in various combinations. Members include(d) Raekwon, Ghost Face Killah and Ol' Dirty Bastard (deceased). I used to live not far from their home base, and they were a fairly prominent part of the local culture.

Hi Fred !
Thanks for the information.
Halfass ...Is it a band she once mentioned (years ago, somewhere) that her brother was in ?

Well, I 'll check that in my backup of some VT audios from archive.org - which means a long term listening of them...

Oooookay!

Gotta admit that I love the refence to a Thanksgiving turkey dinner (that no one can resist). Very funny.

By the way, I don't think the question about "RA" has been addressed yet. That stands for "Resident Assistant". Most college dorms (at least in the U.S.) have Resident Assistants, or some similarly titled positions, in the freshman dorms. These are sophomores (or upper classmen) who are residents there to guide and assist the new college residents on campus, usually on a scale of one or two per floor. So it sounds like the rap is referring to a male RA who is working towards marrying a female who was originally a freshman resident on his college dorm floor.

Not that I would know about any such thing, of course..... ahem. I was a second semester junior at Ithaca College when I was an RA and I met my wife-to-be. She was a first semester college freshman at the time. On my floor. Her father had told her that she could not date a senior when she went off to school. Seems that I was saved by the fact that I'd taken one semester off during my college career! We'll celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary on May 30th.... :D

Great story !
It seems that you were not the only one if this song was inspired in a way by quite the similar situation ;)
