Lucy Furr’s Friday Smackdown

I’ve been a lazy bastard lately and have missed out on so many golden and evocative blogging opportunities in the last few weeks, especially the whole ET bites the dust drama and the continuing saga of Juju. Anyway I’ve made the firm decision to blog at least once a week and to ease myself in, I’ve decided to bring you Dear Reader my Lucy Furr’s Friday Smackdown. A smackdown is defined by wiktionary as a fight; a beating, a physical or emotional confrontation. Well I’m hoping to provoke all three by exposing my most private feelings towards two similar items every Friday e.g. two flavours, two books, two TV shows, two beers, you get the picture. One of the items will be something I think rocks and the other will be one I think sucks. Feel free to smack me down if you don’t agree or alternately to agree profusely and congratulate me on my outstandingly good taste.

So let’s kick off with two fairly recent songs, one by Young Money(whoever he is), and the other’s by Cypress Hill.

This song SUCKS.

I knock her lights out and she still shine. WTF.

This song ROCKS.

Apologies for the lack of official video. If you can find one please send me the link and I’ll pop it in here.

Great post Lucy!

I agree – Cypress Hill’s sampling from a 41-year-old CSN track guarantees the win. As for Young Money, “Call me Mr. Flintstone coz I can make your bed rock” would have been a great pick-up line in first year at university. My efforts were mediocre at best, I think the ladies knew I was being nice to them only because I wanted them to buy me food :X-P:

Oh you poor starveling – good thing you’ve since learned how to cook – although I’m sure you were occasionally after something a little more “tasty”than a steer’s burger :devil:

some more tasty than a steer’s burger, that’s gotta be kfc’s dirty chicken ;)

which reminds me, its kenfucky friday!! yay for slob night.

Agreed that “Bedrock” track sucks monkey balls. I dont understand the amount of playtime it gets on the radio and the video is inane.

Armada latina really is a cool, laid back track, BUT Cypress hill really seems to have stepped away from their hardcore rap personas from the 90’s. I guess everyone changes.

These guys are in their 40s now so you’d expect their music to mature a bit. Their love for marijuana still seems intact though, their latest album was released on 420 day.

There is an good article on Reuters about how much harder it is for hip hop acts to sell records due to fickle audiences.
