Cazwell: ‘I Purposefully Wrote A Song For Retards’

I think that people don’t like to think so much, so I purposely wrote a song for retards. It was summer song. Visually for the video, I think it made a big difference that all the boys were smiling. Because sometimes when you see a guy that looks a little more thug or street, they try to keep it all down. But working at clubs with go-go boys, I knew the ones who smiled were more approachable and made more money. I knew I wanted them to smile. It made people smile and turned them on.
