"If God Had an iPod, I'd Be on His Playlist"

"Which Would You Rather Be Underpaid or Overrated?"
Out of all the G.O.O.D. Music Fridays the past month where Kanye has consistently put out a new song every Friday, this may be my favorite. I would have said my favorite was Runaway, but that was released on a Monday after the VMAs so that doesn't count. The beat provided by Swizz paints a grimy, dark, haunting feel to it, giving it more of a freestyle sound to it. You've gotta get the right cast of characters to make this work and clearly, I'm hitting the like button on this cast and crew with @KanyeWest, @s_c_ and @pusha_T cheffing up some grade A verses over @therealswizzz maronade.

What had me scratching my head after a few listens of this was the verse by that notoriously well known artist named...CyHi The Prince? Wait what? You may have heard him under the name Prince CyHi in his single with Akon titled Shoulda Known, which was released over 10 months ago. Needless to say being signed under the Def Jam/Konvict/G.O.O.D. Music umbrella is sure to result in success, especially with @akon literally playing King Midas with everything he touches. In case you need a glimpse, heres @cyhidaprynce's verse from the track below:
I am so outrageous,
I wear my pride on my sleeve like a bracelet
If God had an iPod, I’d be on his playlist
My phrases amazes the faces in places
The favourite, huh
My cup over runneth with hundreds
Dummy, dammit, not like for me to waste it
The new commandment, thou shall not hate kid
My movement is like the civil rights I’m Ralph David
Abernathy, so call my lady Rosa Parks
I am nothing like them n-ggas baby those are marks
I met this girl on Valentines day f'ed her in May
She found out about April so she chose to March

Damn another broken heart
I keep b-tches by the two’s n-gga, Noah’s Ark
I got a seven on me, I call my dro the mark
Plus a trojan in my pocket, Matt Leinert
G-A-T in the pathfinder
Cause you haters got PHD’s
Y’all just some major haters and some math minors
Tiger Woods don’t make me grab iron
Tip of the cap to you CyHi, lookin' forward to much more quality 16s in the future since you just proved on that you can hang with the big boys. As a sidebar, it was always evident that Pusha T was the driving force behind the lyrical success of The Clipse (no disrespect Malice) and now that he has teamed up with Kanye who will surely throw him more than a few bones beat wise, there's a great chance we may have yet to hear the best of what P has to offer.

Exciting stuff and don't get too up in arms about the whole Hammer line MC or should I say King Hammer?? (HA!), the 36 sec video clip of you getting at the punching bag in an attempt to intimidate Jigga is not scaring anyone. We're all looking forward to your Halloween diss record aimed at Jay-Z/Kanye, can't wait for the 90s spandex. Also, Nick Cannon, stop it with the whole Nick Cannon/MC Hammer vs Jay-Z/Eminem tag team match. Are you serious dude? Just stay married to that dime piece you out-punted your coverage with and finish that tall glass of STFU....

Give it a listen...
