"Splackavellie" is an R&B song by American singer Pressha, released as the first single from his debut album Don't Get It Twisted and from the soundtrack to the 1998 film The Players Club, peaking at #27 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #14 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart.[1]

Meaning[edit]

"Splackavellie" is a portmanteau, a blend of "Splack" and "Machiavelli." "Splack" is an onomatopœia originally used by 2 Live Crew in their song "Put Her in the Buck" as follows: "Lay the bitch on the bed, flat on her back, hold her legs up high, make the pussy splack." Machiavelli is frequently cited by hip-hop culture e.g., Tupac Shakur's former stage name, Makaveli. The pragmatic use of deceit and subsumption of personal identity referenced in the lyrics are decidedly Machiavellian.
