Take It To The Head (Explicit). A Review
DJ Khaled’s comeback single since shouting “We the best” on the I’m So Hood remix, I’m guessing. Highly anticipated? No. I only found out about this video because DJ Leddy led wouldn’t stop staring at me from the corner of Kanye’s Mercy. Since he wouldn’t go away despite threats to put him on a diet (good Lord man, you’ve put on some weight). Anyway here’s the link, because I know nobody has actually watched this video. Ugh…
So the video starts off with a train wreck, which is a metaphor for this song. Then the train wreck really takes form when DJ Khaled doesn’t identify that he is in fact DJ Khaled or assure me that I am listening to the best. Instead he tells us that he’s:
Working all winter
Geez, What happened to being the best? Now you’re telling me that you worked really hard to produce this terrible song? What happened to just shitting out hits, huh buddy?
I mean, I can still remember back when you were Takin’ Over when an evil assailant group affiliated with censoring the powerful voice of the people was out to get you. When you hid your Muslim ass in a church and Jesus made you disappear into his arms. I don’t get it, was Fat Joe Judas? If any rap video ever needed ato be continued, that would definitely be it.
Back to the point!
What’s more important here is that you put Chris Brown in a cage. I really hope this was unintentional and that you noticed just as you uploaded the video to the internet that you put Chris Brown in an electrified fence in a flooded subway. Either way, thanks guys, the world needed that.
So the chorus is basically Chris telling you to take shots to the head and
Now we gon’ get fucked up, no excuses no apologies
Christopher now you’re just being redundant.
This is followed by the first verse. Enter Rick Ross, who talks about how much of a boss he is and how he can afford to buy a girl anything she wants, nothing unusual. But what does stand out it this one line:
She know a lot of niggas, don’t know a hotter nigga
Prime beef, ladies.
This is followed by Nicki Minaj’s verse. Which has a combined 47 words, top notch stuff, greatest of all time material. Again nothing stands out in this verse, except…
Big fat nigga, all that huffin’ and puffin’
Is Nicki Fucking Ricki? Is this considered rap inbreeding? Are they going to have a baby? A lyrically retarded baby? Don’t worry, lyrical retardation is actually a good thing.
Third and last verse goes to the littlest of Waynes, surprise surprise. Dwayne talks about sex and drugs, surprise surprise. Lil really drives home the clever and very funny double entendre that is the songs title with:
And she kiss me on my neck and she kiss me on my chest
And then she…
Followed by Chris singing- Oh fuck I can’t do this.
All in all this song is terrible and I give it one disappointed look on Khaled’s face, eerily that’s exactly how my mother looks at me.
