[acoustic cover] dance (a$$) by big sean

It’s that time of the week where I once again demonstrate my lack of shame by putting up another substandard hip hop cover video. The victimized song today is Big Sean’s Dance (A$$). I don’t really feel that bad desecrating this song since it was pretty poor to begin with. And it was fun to desecrate.

This song is pretty much about Big Sean’s obsession with big booties. I’m not sure who advised him to obfuscate the word “ass” in the official title of the song because not even the radio versions feature the lyrics “a-dollar-dollar a-dollar-dollar”. It’s too bad; that would have been an extremely catchy hook. Speaking of the hook, it features the word “ass” repeated 24 times in a row. Each time. Given that the hook occurs about 3 times and that there are several other isolated asses thrown in here and there, this song features the word close to 80 times. Impressive.

Another fun fact about this song is the lyric “wobbledy-wobbledy”. Being as uneducated as I am in the history of hip hop, I thought Big Sean had coined this phrase. Then, I happened to be channel surfing when Fuse TV was playing a Lil Wayne video countdown. The video in question was Juvenile’s Back That Ass Up, which I had heard a countless number of times. However, at the end of the video, Lil Wayne broke into a “wobbledy-wobbledy-wo-bo-wobbledy-wobbledy” sequence. Further research yielded the song Drop It Like It’s Hot by Lil Wayne that actually features the aforementioned lyric in copious amounts. I hope you learned something new today.

Onto the song!

[acoustic cover] marvin & chardonnay

This is a song I’ve been looking at for a while but Kanye’s rapping was so offbeat that it took me a while to figure even a little bit of it out. The end result was that I decided I didn’t care much about Kanye’s rapping. The main reason I put this up is because I restrung my guitar today and in my opinion it sounds approximately 12309 times better. In fact, I’ve spent something like the last 2 hours playing it. Instead of going to the gym.

Anyways, this is Big Sean’s Marvin & Chardonnay, a song about, presumably, seducing some girl with music from Marvin Gaye and a bottle (probably more accurately multiple bottles) of Chardonnay. Ah, don’t we love the lyrical content put up by hip hop artists today? Well, I do. I mean, I better, if I’ve put up something that feels like 30 covers in the last few months. Big Sean is coming to ATX in about 3 weeks. I’m considering going. Seriously, I am (considering it).
