“Can we talk about the club’s energy while ‘Knuck if you Buck’ was playing?” said another viewer. “Y’all supposed to be hype af.” (“Af” means “as f—).
The disappointment was so real. Unlike most TV shows or movies, the club scene in “Atlanta” wasn’t depicted as a ritzy place where everyone was beautiful and dressed to the nines, having the time of their lives. Primal, a nightclub in Atlanta and on“Atlanta,” depicted the real club experience: Earn doesn’t drink (although he did, a lot, in this episode), Darius left early to eat cereal and play video games and Paper Boi was bored out of his mind.
So when “Knuck If You Buck” came on during the episode, most people were naturally expecting the show to stay true to its roots and have the proper response to such a monumental song. But then again, we should have all learned by now to not expect anything normal from Donald Glover.
