So 50 has somehow managed to make lyrics about shooting niggas down in the street totally acceptable by using them to promote feeding the world? Word.
“Street King Energy Track 7″ is promoting, you guessed it, Street King Energy shots. You buy a shot, you feed a hungry child. Buy a 12-pack, you’re sponsoring a Thanksgiving dinner. Get hip and get some of this rebel fuel. You’ll be doing something great for the less fortunate and getting geeked at the same time. Sounds like a win/win to me. But anyway, back to the song.
We start with a young woman attempting to sing something or other, but she’s quickly dismissed by King Fif thank goodness. Replacing her are some strings stabs, eerie synth, 3 thumps and a snare tap. Nice. 50’s demeanor is more of a street stalker than world philanthropist, but yall know you don’t want to listen to 2 verses of Live Aid from Curtis.
It’s typical 50. You’re a pussy and he’s going to peel your cap because you said something he didn’t like. Yup, it’s that simple. The chorus toggles between Dre and Kool G Rap and totally has me wanting to watch The Mack now. (Roger Mosley’s speech and Dre’s subsequent response at the front end of “Rat-a-tat-tat” is one of the best rap intros ever) So enjoy the tune. Pick up that Street King and do something productive with your check this weekend instead of giving it all to that red chick down at the strip club.
