Of Course It's a "Gimme" !

25 Jan 2006

According to an Associated Press article released today, "[Kanye] West says his hit 'Gold Digger' was the *best song* last year and that it should have been nominated for the Grammy's best rap song category." West commented: " That's a gimme Grammy." Indeed. That's a "gimme" Grammy if I ever heard one. Let's take a moment to look closer at West's inspired lyrics. Here's the chorus (background voices in parentheses):

(She did me wrong)
Now I ain't sayin' she a gold digger (when I'm in need)
But she ain't messin' wit no broke niggaz
(She did me wrong)
Now I aint sayin she a gold digger (When I'm in need)
But she ain't messin' wit no broke niggaz
Get down girl go head get down (I gotta leave)
Get down girl go head get down (I gotta leave)
Get down girl go head get down (I gotta leave)
Get down girl go head.

Mull that over for a day. I plan to come back to this tomorrow for further analysis. But, at first blush, yeah, that's a gimme. I can see why he's upset.
