Let’s set some basic facts. First, I dig me some Angie Martinez. Second, Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now” is the type of R&B bullshit that makes Marvin Gaye roll over in his grave and I hate it. Even though Busta Rhymes sort of saves it with average-grade lyrics delivered with insanely supercharged style, Brown’s “spit game” is pretty asinine, while Wayne’s is fairly average for him.
Blah. Though, I’m sure it’s a damn fine drunk-in-the-club-so-songs-sound-better-and-people-look-hotter type of deal.
All that being said, this behind-the-scenes look at New York’s Hot 97 was entertaining, especially if you are familiar with the characters involved. DJ Mister Cee challenged the staff of Angie Martinez’s midday show that they couldn’t karaoke the lines to “Look At Me Now.” Money was laid out, and Drewski, Angie and DJ Enuff proceeded to go in.
It’s really Angie’s swag that makes this worthwhile. From now on, when we go on future imaginary dates in my mind, battling on American Idol on the Wii will not be part of the plan.
Look at them now. Ha. Get it?
