Hip Hop Tautologies

Here’s a logical diagram of the MIMS hit song “This is Why I’m Hot,” which goes in part “I’m hot cuz I’m fly, you ain’t cuz you not.”


I actually think the diagramming they use in the piece is pretty lame, and as a former logic major, I’ll try to get a few moments to actually schematize the central tautology of the song. OK, that’s the nerdiest sentence I’ve written in a while.
