[acoustic cover] hyfr by drake and lil wayne

This weekend was somewhat productive musically. Probably because there was delicious beer involved. Today’s cover video is Drake and Lil Wayne’s Hell Yeah Fuckin Right (HYFR). Probably the hardest song I’ve done because of Drake’s opening verse which is kinda nuts. Not Busta Rhymes nuts, but more like, when does he breathe in? I’m hoping his production crew is just doing its job properly.

One of my co-workers actually requested a cover of this song. So I was like, “Yeah, no sweat. I got this.” Then I heard the song. Umm…

But it turns out it isn’t that difficult. In fact, the only line I (still) have trouble with is the third one… “Tuition is handled by some random n***a that live in Atlanta”. If you listen to the video, you will notice that I, true to form, royally screw up this line. Oh well, whatevs. Another thing you may notice is that I keep speeding up. I need a metronome or something, damn.

Alright, enough of an intro. Drake is coming to ATX at the end of February. I will not be going, mainly because I will be about 10,000 miles away in India, but probably because tickets would have been ridiculously expensive anyway.

[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!
