When I saw that my final blog entry on the Village Voice Pazz & Jop poll was to be a rap song by YG (feat. Nipsey Hussle), I was bummed. I’ve seen enough of these generic party anthems held up as great art.
But then I read that the song’s title ‘FDT,’ stands for “Fuck Donald Trump” and I realized, regardless of the song’s quality, we couldn’t have a finer closing song for this series.
In Billboard’s seventh spot this week is Jeremih with ‘Don’t Tell ‘Em,’ a song as stupid as the spelling of his first name.
The girl power wave that put women in the top six Billboard spots hits a wall with this lazy R&B jam that celebrates women as mindless sex objects.
Songs like this make me sympathize with Tipper Gore and Bill O’Reilly. Does Tipper Gore still care about offensive song lyrics?
