Well, on the plus side this is a new Goodie MOb song that’s actually a rap song. Also Janelle Monae.
On the other hand, it’s kinda the same message as Monae’s “Q.U.E.E.N.” but not quite as well done, right? Am I just being pessimistic about Goodie now?
Still good to hear them rapping though.
Cool Breeze ft. Outkast, Goodie Mob & Witchdoctor - Watch for the Hook (1999)
Here Witchdoctor reminds us “The street’s full of snakes,” over a Merry Clayton sample, her cover of Neil Young “Southern Man.” But then a lot of the Dungeon Family stuff is like a variation on / reincarnation of “Southern Man.”
“Better keep your head” -Neil Young
“Too bad Cool Breeze’s career was just as fleeting as his name” -Vibe, 2002.
Witchdoctor’s on the B-side too, “Hitman,” the Gangster as Tragic Hero: “If he pull the gat on you first / give him everything but your dreams.”
Love this song, love this album. Why the fuck did Coolbreeze decide to go last on this track. Bad choice, friend.
