Alarming News

We interrupt our programming for a discussion on hip-hop

I love ‘Wait’ the whisper song by the Ying Yang Twins, particularly the remix with Missy Elliot, but I have to admit I can see it getting old quickly. Plus, this is one of the few songs where the clean radio version is so much better than the dirty original. Trust me, you don’t want to hear the original. He’s saying what you think he’s saying. It’s just better not to know.

Still, I think ‘Wait’ is on track to be in the top 3 songs you hear playing out car windows this summer. My other two picks are ‘So Seductive’ by Tony Yayo, mostly because it’s catchy as hell and everything 50 Cent touches turns to gold these days, and ‘Diamonds are Forever’, with Kanye West and Jay-Z, which despite having a political message, something I normally hate, is a fantastic song. Sure, Jay-Z’s retired from rapping but he’s back here with a great verse that includes the excellent line ‘I’m not a businessman, I’m a business man‘.

Now back to our regularly scheduled right-wing politics.
