Music Review: Crank That - Soulja Boy
Speed: 70 bpm
Mix this one with: City Lights - Method Man and Redman ft. UGK, Boyfriend #2 - Pleasure P, All The Above - Maino ft. T-Pain
The DJ’s Take: Just like everyone else, I am truly surprised at how Soulja Boy still has a career at this point. That said, he has apparently mastered the art of the catchy hook, and that’s a skill unto itself, especially in today’s pop scene. Yes, people still get down to this track, and the fake steel drums make you subconsciously feel like you are in Nassau or some other infamous spring break mecca. Playing this is like an all or nothing proposition - get set to get mad love, or get totally ragged on. Like Black Sheep said, the choice is yours.
