Tom Brady says it a lot. There's even a commercial of him saying it repeatedly. MMA fighters and weightlifters and other broey dudes say it a lot. It's been around a long time but its current popularity comes from jock and meathead culture.

Well articulated sir

I like to think that both the guys who invented "yeeeeewwwwww" and "LETS GOOOOO" are on a raft together pumping each other up.

Heard this song and thought of this thread.... I want to say the current phrasing of 'let's go' gained popularity after that chris brown song, 'look at me now' in 2011...

He says 'lee'goo' in the beginning of the highly popular song.. Also notable that's when lil wayne started skating heavy and says 'got money on my radar, dressed like a skater' in the song at the height of lil wayne craze.

Part of my reasoning for that being that I worked in a highschool around that time and remember every kid saying that phrase and hearing it morph to grammatically correct but louder... 'LET'SSS GOOOO'

Not sure any other reference of 'let's go' mentioned in this thread line up with the current status of LETTTSSSGOOOO

"look at me now... look at me now... im gittiin pay-perr."

You're probably the second shittiest poster on here.

Absolutely agree. They're the Karen of SLAP it seems. Always bitching about something stupid.
Hopefully not a kook, but if so, fuck it.

"look at me now... look at me now... im gittiin pay-perr."



This is the most astute hypothesis on this thread.
But I would like to add in some Lil' Jon "Let's Go"s, which he yells out in many of his songs. In "Yeah" with Usher LJ yells out "Let's Go" at the beginning and starts up that sickass lazer beat. I think Chappelle even said the phrase in his skit in order to impersonate Lil' Jon. Obviously the concept of "Let's Go" has been around forever so there's probably no pinpoint origin but I do agree with others here and think the last big push to be the mainstream rowdyrouser came from TV fans hearing Tom Brady yell it and thought to themselves "oh I have GOTTA start saying that!"
Can you imagine?

I've heard streamers say this since 2017, and at that time I thought Let's Go was kind of charming.

It's kind of annoying now.

Instead of "I know that's right" I opt for the more sophisticated "I believe that statement to be factually correct to the best of my knowledge."

I think Ne Yo may have promulgated the phrase’s surge in usage.
