The hip-hop world is a less than sensible place - lots of times, you're even required to clarify when bad means bad and when bad means good - so once a week we're going to get with a rapper and ask them to explain things. Something you always wanted to ask a rapper? Email email@example.com.
Note: Scruncha Roo is super drummer Kyle Vento. We hear he's also referred to as God's Arms but we haven't verified that yet.
This Week's Rapper: Scruncha Roo
This Week's Prompt: T-Pain has a new project he's accidentally decided to call The Heath Ledger Project. Your task: Name as many tapes/songs/albums with equally bad names.
Scruncha Roo: [laughs] WOW! I did not know that. That's fucking horrible. The list:
Corny as fuck. Plain old failed attempt of continuum usage.
I love Elton John, he's truly one of my favorite musicians. But really?
Supa Day, "She Da Wettest in Da Building"
You should have seen these before they took it off YouTube. He was playing porn on the TV where it's censored now. [laughs]
Some other terrible names. We reiterate: These are real, actual names of real, actual albums. For shame.
Field Mob's From The Roota 2 The Toota. Who the fuck even knows?
Terror Squad Presents DJ Khaled - Listennn... The Album! This is when everyone should've been like, "Yeah, you know what, let's go ahead and just get rid of DJ Khaled right now."
De La Soul's Art Official Intelligence: Mosaic Thump Hey, let's try and make the title as ridiculous as possible, then let's go on TV and shout about how "rap with substance" gets overlooked.
Keith Murray's Rap-Murr-Phobia: Fear Of Real Hip-Hop Because when you think of hip-hop, you think of Keith Murray.
