Bubba Sparxxx : Lovely

Eminem’s white-boy-can-rap crown remains unchallenged...

What Bubba Sparxxx and his producer [a]Timbaland[/a] are saying here with ‘Lovely’ is, ‘Look, it doesn’t matter if you’re a guy and you’ve got a really fat arse. This is music that even you can dance to’. This is hip-hop for men with 40 inch waists and no belts, it’s two steps to the left, it’s two steps to the right and then you shake your shoulders and raise your eyebrows. No problem. What it isn’t, however, is anywhere near as good as his whip-cracking debut ‘Ugly’. [a]Eminem[/a]’s white-boy-can-rap crown remains unchallenged.
