Martin & $hort part 2



Am I really gonna have to Paypal Bol $20 to make another "Pimp C was a degenerate" post to force an angry "I KNOW KRS ONE AND DE LA SOUL!!!" response out of Bun B again (sooo wish the old XXL blog archives were still online) just so I can slide in and casually ask him why UGK and their then Jive label mate Too $hort both recorded near-identical songs called Fuck My Car mere months apart ($hort's came first in may, UGK then released theirs in july) back in 1996? It seems a drastic measure to take but, yo, we're mad gully like that here at The Martorialist and we need answers already, damnit.

Too $hort ft. MC Breed - Fuck My Car



$hort's Getiin' It isn't a particularly good album (how could 2 $hort & Parliament collaborations be so humdrum?) and it has a helluva lot to answer for since it was rap's first world-weary retirement album, but I've got no compunctions about the £3.99 I spent on the tape of it from Tempest Records in Birmingham in 1999 because I just look at it as a great cassette single I had to wittle down to Fuck My Car and $hort's I Used To Love H.E.R rip-off Take My Bitch, where he equates handing over the rap game to da kidz with a pimp giving away his oldest whore who's now tore-up but still comfortable like an old pair of slippers. Classy.

"Man, that was such a great era of blogging haha."

Yeah it was. Seemed much less political. Eskay and Combat Jack were shitting on Bun in the comment section. I doubt they would ever do something like that now. Not that I think Bun deserves it, but it was definately entertaining. I didn't discover the internet until 2008 though.

Not sure if it went through or not the first time, but it seems that you have to put the "www." in front of the link I posted up top.

Yeah, HL, had to google the post on your site using its title because that first look didn't work.

I think Eskay typed more words in that comment section than he does in a whole year on Nahright.

lol I went back and read the comments, and the general sentiment was "we don't fuck with you musically" (c) Kid Cudi
