I hate what gets played on the radio. As the conspiracy theory goes, I believe it's been hijacked by evil corporations that want us to like wack music. But once in a while a great rap gets on the radio and most of the time it will catch on and change the game for a bit
First of all Treach comes nice on this track, the way he rhymes and flows quick is super dope. It's fun and it got a nasty edge to it. It made me laugh and puts a swagger in everybody's step. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJgFU3U4X_Y
It's kind of wierd to see such a song get played on top 40 stations over and over. It's a very well thought out, cinematic, character driven story intended to be a concept song about manic depressive paranoia.

One of the funnest songs ever to play on the radio. Digital Underground might be known as a one hit wonder just because this song has been on the radio so much more even though they've got a lot of other good, funny, funky music
I forgot how much I liked this song. As good as Andre and Big Boi are, it's very rare to see both of the at their best on a track. I like the pace of this rap. Actually, this rap would be higher on my list if it wasn't so over produced. There's a lot of electro-beat, very snappy drum machine programming, a choir, guitar samples. The lyrics are doper than the track and the track is not too bad.
It was hard for me to admit I liked this one. I like the attitude that Everlast brings as he rides Muggs' and DJ Lethal's swirling, hard hitting, versatile fast track. I think it lost favor with me because it gets played so many goddammed times. It's good and it changed what kind of tracks got played on the radio. People can dance to it. You can work out to it. You can remember your highschool days when you hear it.
