  1. Mad friends know that I’m no hip pop fan so it will come as no surprise…

    I like the drum program on the track and that’s about it. I think a lot of this slightly edgier yet cynically produced hip pop is emotive, but it emotes a darkness that I feel slightly depressed about. I don’t think it’s me wanting to hear happy clappy hip hop-it’s just that I can imagine how listeing to this kind of soundtrack on the regular could shroud and limit your viewpoint and feelings. Yeah, i take music too seriously.

    A track like that makes me feel limited to the urban stupidness in my area coupled with the grey skyline of a British Summer, chicken bones strewn from the cheap chicken and chips shops, alcoholics pissing in the corner of my bus stop with JD Sports wearin kids with dogs that will eventually turn on em, ..and now there’s a soundtrack for it?

    I ask the defenders once again, at what point do you say to yourself: “I ABSOLUTELY MUST have this track” and do the DJS/Promoters who play their free version pick it up in four months time reminsicing how great this track was. Will these tunes ever be classics, really?

  2. I atcually really like this track, can see T.I doing his TIP dance to this one, where he tips low, and slightly stamps as he walks and does his swimming thing things with his hands…now what I’m on about??…anywho… besides liking the track, the content is all me, me, me, I’m Like, I got, I can do….Yawn!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. “DJS/Promoters who play their free version pick it up in four months time reminsicing how great this track was. Will these tunes ever be classics, really? ” ……..@ recaliming great point. No longevity, just passing through lol !!

    “chicken bones strewn from the cheap chicken and chips shops,” -…..
    @ reclaiming – I was having this discussion with a friend just the other day. How many more £1 chicken shops do the the inner cities need. One pops up every other day. Who sanctions this nonsense. You don’t see this bull shit in the suburbs. 😦

    Oh yes, about the track, didn’t listen.
