Sound Session #267 (7-11-10)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on July 12th, 2010 by Hyphen

You remember when you were a kid and your parents (if they loved you…shots fired) would ask about your day at school?  Regardless of what happened, 90% of the time, you’d respond to “how was your day?” with “…good.”  I mean, you could have aced a test…gotten into a fight…got that date to Homecoming…etc., but it’s always first nature to just sum it up.  “Good.”

Well, sometimes these Sound Session archives feel the same way.  That’s not a bad thing.  On the contrary, we just continue to provide that piffery.  Uncut, raw, dopeness…straight to your veins each week (enough overt drug references for ya?).  “How was Sound Session this week?”…”Dope.”

And in case you’re wondering, our throwback is in response to the Oscar Grant madness…aka the only decision worse than Bron Bron this week.  Speaking of which, here’s some advice: announce the creation of a specific chapter of your charity that will focus on Cleveland’s youth.  Pledge a minimum of 2 million, which is a drop in the bucket for you.  Anytime someone attacks you for the callousness you showed the Cavs, say you’re sorry but that’s just sports anyway…your charity work shows how you really feel about the community.  Diffuses the situation and 2 million in donations buys you 10 million in PR.  But nah…run with the “all the ad revenue from my ego-tastic special goes to the B&G Club” angle.  [Jamie Foxx] Yeah, that’ll get ‘em on your side…yeah [/I am your conscience].

Wack Lyric of the Day, 6-2-08

Big V

For the record, I like this song and the Nappy Roots. Plus, I applaud them for making a good, positive single. But you know the drill:

“Hairline fresh, new cologne on/Feelin’ so good, changed the color to my phone”
Big V (of Nappy Roots), “Good Day”

I was with him for a second…seems like a fresh haircut & some new cologne might make you feel like you’re having a good day…but then because you’re “feelin so good,” it’s time to change the color to your phone?  Unless he means cop a new phone, I’m just picturing someone having a great day and thinking…”you know what? I’ma change my Sidekick bumpers!”  Aw naw, hell naw indeed.
