Ok... this playlist is a bit of an experiment. I subscribe to Rdio... a great music service (better than Spotify; slick UI/apps). Pretty sure you're only going to hear a short preview of each track, but... I'm not sure if you'll hear anything at all or if Rdio will force you to sign up. Find out. If you are able to hear some of it, though... enjoy. These are a few of my favorite African songs. "African??", you say. Yeah... African. It's an amazing genre. Seriously good music.
The best music I heard this month. You got ears, right? Use 'em. I worked hard to compile this list. I broke my back and gave myself a nervous breakdown. I even sold my soul to Ann Coulter... all so you could experience some obscure song, an unknown band. Maybe one of these tracks will produce a baby (you dirty little freak) or help you shed some tears. Maybe it will inspire you to knock over a 7-Eleven or kill zombies. Whatever. The point is... it's yours. Let it wash over you. Roll around in it. Pretend it's oil and Daddy needs to spank his bad little girl.
Huh? Nevermind. Just listen. Oh... random order.
Two sentences that seem to contradict one another... "Don't disrespect me in front of my baby, bitch" and "Someone grab my motherfuckin' baby." So... she's ok with a complete stranger holding her motherfuckin' child, but he/she had better not diss her in front of said child. Noted. Watching this play out, I kept shaking my head. I hope they called Social Services. Poor kid.
If you don't like hip-hop or you're sensitive to graphic language, you're not going to like this clip. Now... I love good hip-hop, but even I get tired of hearing "nigga" this and "ho" that.... and pray for the day when hip-hop artists everywhere will improve their vocabulary and stop all the fucking boasting. This girl, though... is an exception. Yes, she's vulgar and a bit repetitive... but she's also wicked talented and the video (odd as it may be) is a little piece of pop art. That I also want to fuck her has absolutely nothing to do with it. No, really... I'm serious.
More from Azealia Banks:
Someone posted this on Facebook by saying how inspiring it was for big women everywhere. Uh huh. She's good. That's not what went through my mind, though. All I could think was, "Who the fuck has two stripper poles in their home?" Weird. She's dancing to "The Zone" by The Weeknd.
