Oi Curren$y - how's the ‘Jets’ motif of your rap persona gonna half-rest on your supposed flyness when your black-socks-with-shorts look in the Michael Knight video is more Wayne from Bootle than Lil' Wayne?
I know rave songs which were big at scouse superclub Cream from 1995 - 2002 are the new Ultimate Breaks And Beats as far as sampling goes, but do we really want rappers dressing like the every-volume-of-CreamClubClassics-owning white trash population of Merseyside during summertime too?
Curren$y - Michael Knight
So, Michael Knight, 4 Hours And 20 Minutes with Killa Kyleon, and a supposed cameo appearance from Camp Lo (love their song on the Ski Beatz album) have got me anticipating Pilot Talk 2 even though the first one ended up being little more than good background music album for me which begins to grate whenever I concentrate on Curren$y's rambling delivery on it, no matter how deliberate and nuanced the rambling delivery may actually be. I also really wish Spitta would quit trying to work with Mos Def and record a grip of songs with his ex Ca$h Money labelmate All $tar/$tarlito instead since they both share the same hazy southern aesthetic and any reference to gay rappers they'd make would be tinged with speculation whether they were talking about Baby and Wayne sharing beds on the Ca$h Money tour bus. Ayo, those aren't pillows...
Bonus Gay Dudes beats :
I hear KanYe sampled a piano from an Aphex Twin song or sumfink? Zzzzzzzzz. Someone let me know when he finally embraces his Chicago-house roots and raps about pumping Amber Rose 'til the early morn' over the effervescent piano intro to Move Your Body :
Marshall Jefferson - Move Your Body (The House-Music Anthem)
Well, you'd presume it was about Amber Rose but it'd be a Baby Rides For Love by Frankie Knuckles & Jamie Principle type rope-a-dope where you'd be initially lulled in by the provocativeness, then enveloped by the music and all tapping into your inner-Frank Booth only for the penny to drop that it's actually about S&M with a trannie about 3 minutes in, leaving you to quickly make like Shaggy :
