Not very high on the Controversy Index…
Patrick St. Michel: Rap game this sucks.
Alfred Soto: I dated a guy whose latter-day Eminem impression was better than Eminem’s in his Elton-courting heyday. This joke is just as good.
Ian Mathers: Wait, am I supposed to be reviewing a single or collecting my people?
Will Adams: A fun play on words wasted on some mush-mouthed rapper and clashing synth lines. Also, it’s nice to be reminded how little I missed hashtag rap. This gets an extra point for being under two and a half minutes.
Anthony Easton: Is “panther” some kind of drug/sex slang, or is he actually suggesting, in addition to giving strippers quite a lot of money and also purchasing champagne, he might also be in the market for being the new Siegfried and/or Roy? Also, while this has much energy and abstract formalism, it seems difficult to take one’s clothes off to. That disappoints me somehow.
Brad Shoup: Good to see Riff Raff’s up with handkerchief code. His flow is essentially a series of meows supporting whatever he thinks hip-hop’s into c. 2010. (Coming in 2014… foreign cars!) I never thought I’d say this, but what’s MC Chris up to?
Daniel Montesinos-Donaghy: It would be disingenuous to offer anything more than my immediate reaction to “Goin’ Hamilton”: camping! drop! rubberband! almost a reggaeton song! riff raff would be a great reggaeton! tiger! camping! bubblegum! that weird post “rose bowl” line sound of someone inbetween bites! what is riff raff! likes syllables! dame grease produced dmx’s hows it goin down! that is a great song! camping! Then I played it again and had the exact same response. PS. DMX’s “How’s It Goin’ Down” is a , obviously.
Katherine St Asaph: But who’s Aaron Burr?
