Common Ft. Lily Allen – Drivin’ Me Wild

This song is for Pinko Punko, whose insatiable appetite for all things Lily Allen probably needs some sating. Overall, a good song, but not an amazing song. I just can’t get over the relentless high piano chords that accompany Lily Allen’s excellent backing. Common seems pretty harmless – at times almost funny, but at worse just a groaner (I mean she has some D’s on her, but they weren’t fake, though [with accompanying finger wagging]). I do have to say that Lily Allen is well-used in the video: prototypic gowns and even an astronaut getup. Sweet. At any rate, I dare anyone to listen all the way through this and not have those piano chords stuck in their head.

I am afraid this personage is going to eat me. And has a lot of rage. Perhaps BG can give him a hug? Thanks, M-D.

A middle finger for all you punk MCs!

Fantastic Voyage-Coolio

A little blast from the past. Besides the gat with the extra clip and the problematic snitch sitch (a lyric I hadn’t really noticed before), a relatively tame and upbeat tune. Just going to the beach, getting out of the shit for a sec.
