Shortland Streetz is watchin'

"Rooftop like we bringin' '88 back
Bring the hooks in, where the bass at?"


Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX - Fancy
(From Fancy single; 2014)

)

First Antipodean since Jaz to be aware of The Rooftop? Ayo Robbie, does a mention of The Rooftop mean that this Sheila is eligible to be featured on Unkut now?

Iggy Azaria out here with Fancy really making a mockery of my ‘Marmaloid is the only Sheila from down under with a rap pass’ rule right now. Shit slaps like the Human League turnt Function music and Iggingbottom's Yank accent on this is more convincing than her countrywoman Holly Valance's was when she appeared in Prison Break, tbh.

Between this certified slumpah, Thank You by Busta & Q-Tip, Happy by Pharrell, the fake Chris Brown song with Chris Brown & DJ Mustard, the fake DJ Mustard/Mac Dre song by Will.I.Am & Miley Cyrus et al, and the reappearance of Starship's We Built This City, UK pop radio is a tolerable place at the moment if ya boy Lucy Lawless Incorporated right chea finds himself forced to listen to it.

(Edited because I thought Iggy was from New Zealand not Australia. It's all just ‘dat down under’ to my dumb arse.)

Is that Mystikal in the car with them?

Si Mane Price said...

It does look like him, and they have a mutual connection in T.I.

Came here to mock you for posting this

But it goes.

Are you saying Iggy Azalea is a New Zealander? (I just checked with the internet and it said otherwise). Hah! Didn't know Rena Owen featured in Star Wars.

Robbie said...

Can we get the actor who played Jim Robinson to play Crocodile Dundee for the next throwback video?

Si Mane Price said...

Oops, Goonie.

Iggy Azalea X The Dr Blake Mysteries in 2014.

Man, Mystikal playing the Donald Faison role in this video opposite a Stacey Dash lookalike is the universe correcting itself for the time Stacey MC UGK-ed him as "the super-talented rap crew Mystikal" on Soul Train.

I'm praying for your soul right now. Also, never before have I been glad american Top 40 radio only moronically spins weird folk music and maybe the occasional Pharrell assisted single.

Jamie said...

This is great but "Work" was great too.

"Left Right" by YG is starting to gain traction on radio/the music channels here now too.

Si Mane Price said...

SGP Guy, let he who enjoys Lily Allen's music cast no stones.

Jamie, Work was empirically NOT great. Better than its namesake by A$AP Ferg, though, obviously.

Damn, America, you gonna let an Aussie Stacey Solomon lookalike step on your soil and body all of your female rappers like this? Fancy goes way harder than that last Nicki single and that corny recent Tink mixtape which sounded like Lauryn Hill.

Yeah this shit slaps, but Azalea still sucks.

James said...

That Will I Am song is definitely a guilty pleasure.

Afro Harold said...

Oh my God, I think I'm having a rap attack!

Si Mane Price said...

Can't a man express his love for a song where a white Aussie chick does a T.I impersonation without being the new Walkmaster Flex, yo?????
