Warning: this raptastic thinker is more than your typical cider drinker...

Erhm... Since Im quite tabula rasa with this kind of stuff... but still I think Im lucky that I didnt waited...

Ive heard a little east coast and little west side style o stuff, some I like some I not, because Im just a listener and for me there have to be some hooks if you know what I mean.

What I dig in hop or rap (hop mainly) is how groove they are, for me this was not. Lyrically it was ok, but nothing big imo so it makes me wonder what we was supposed to waiting for? :P

but anyway as I say, Im not appropriate to analyze this, so please enlighten me :)

Anyway, thanks for sharing XD

Nice one Afro. I've just had to change my underpants! I don't think some of our 'non-British' friends got it though.

Thanks Deefa, and yeah I totally agree. I think the humour and irony doesn't translate into other countries well, particularly that the song is supposed to be parodic, not serious, and that at least part of the humour is coming from the fact that I'm not a good rapper, nor pretending to be.

The fact that the subject matter is perhaps the least well-suited to gangster/hip-hop style is of course humorously ironic, but as you and I know our Yank friends have always had an issue with the meaning of 'irony' (look up 'Alanis Morrisette' for confirmation)!!

For those of you who don't quite get it, try listening with the idea that it's not supposed to be taken seriously :)

I thought the vocab was funny, not your typical rapper's word choice.

Thanks man, I tried to make it sound as awkwardly non-rap as possible, while still sounding like it fitted within that overall genre.
