    Parody of Anaconda

    Hi guys,

    I was reading the lyrics of the parody of album "Anaconda" sung by "Minaj". I got this line "I twerk this hard that it cause earthquake". Shouldn't it be "I twerk this hard that it causes earthquake"? If not, what is the rule behind it?

    The rules of grammar don't usually apply to rap songs.

    A grammatical form would be "I twerked this so hard that it caused an earthquake.".
