Donald Glover writes, acts, does stand-up comedy, and now, it appears, the young star of Community also raps under the name Childish Gambino.
"Some [lyrics] become really profound when you see them in writing. Not 'Big Pimpin'.' That's the exception. It was like, I can't believe I said that. And kept saying it. What kind of animal would say this sort of thing?"
Just to give you a taste, "First time they fuss I'm breezin'" is probably the least offensive line of the 1999 hit.
Jay-Z thinks ditching the harsh lyrics will be better for his legacy anyway, explaining: "this is going to sound so sappy, but love is the only thing that stands the test of time." After the formerly homophobic Eminem said he now favors gay marriage earlier this year, I guess anything is possible!
Cuz I'd get poked by fools with Cheeto dust all over their faces who get mad that I'm not pokin' back. I'm online too much as it is!
What if Snoop and Jay-Z were math teachers back in grade school? What if DJ Unk taught algebra, and Fat Joe taught linear equations? What if rap music inspired word problems? Well, wonder no more.
Showbiz Pizza provides animatronic entertainment for kids in the form of The Rock-afire Explosion. When I was a kid, this robot band sang horrendous songs while looking slightly possessed and bobbing their heads unrhythmically. But the times, they are a changing...
Set the choreography of Bob Fosse to Unk's "Walk It Out," and you got a perfect match. Who knew? Now if only I could say the same about the brightly colored, polyester pantsuits these women are thrusting about in. And I kept waiting for them to "fly it out" with the serious sleeves they're sporting, but that would've ended all the fun too soon-- so flap on ladies, flap on! (Thanks, This Just In...!)
If you want evidence of the decline of civilization, look no further than this video. Two guys in a fast food drive-thru freestyle rap their junk food orders to a surprisingly patient crew inside, who seem to be able to catch only basic words here and there. "We need some chicken up in here, in this hizzle, for rizzle my mizzle extra salt on the frizzle..." I have a vague idea of what that means--but "hizzle" has me stumped. Anyone?
Cupid can't dance, but he sure can rap! And I'm warning you now, his rhymes reveal some major anger issues, which would be fine...if the overgrown cherub didn't insist on carrying that bow-and-arrow around all the damn time. Watch. Your. Back.
Last week, we watched Gollum and Smeagol, of Lord Of The Rings, get slugged with the Barry White bat. This week, the Ice Age penguins get hit with the thugly stick- but it's all good, cuz they know how to "walk it out."
