Swap Meet Louie...

So I am listening to all of my tunes on shuffle, and I just hit Sir Mix-A-Lot, "Swap Meet Louie". What a laugh... I wonder whatever happened to this guy... I suppose a Google search would do, but I will leave that up to someone else...

Anyway, most people know this guy from his infamous "Baby Got Back", but he had a lot of way better tunes than that, "Swap Meet Louie" being one of them. The gist of the song is that little Mary Pong sells fake Louie Vuitton clothes and accessories at the Swap Meet. What makes Sir Mix-A-Lot so great was the lines he used in his tunes. My favourite line from this one is when Mix says:

"I'm sockin' more fools than Patrick Swayze..."

They just don't use great lines like that anymore. When I think back to the Rap (not Hip-Hop) music that we used to listen to we had it all... Mix, Ice-T, Run DMC, NWA, etc...

How can Ice Cube go from Straight Outta Compton to Are We There Yet? It makes no sense...

Some of my favorite Mix lyrics

Rappers ReputationMet a little freak named Stacy
I said I'm not just here for the Barbecue baby
She gave me that look, like Pebbles
I'm acked with bass not treble
So I say, Oogley-goo oogley-doo-goo-doo
"What'd you say?" I ain't tellin' you
I Got GameHere it is, from the wizard of hip-hop
A lesson in game, make the girls get hot
Picked up a girl named Mattie
Caught static from the sucker in a seven two caddy
Mattie was hot, but her name was "not"
I ain't worried 'bout that, I ain't tyin no knot
Took her to the hotel, game went strong
She thought I spent bank, but I really spent coupons
Sprung on the CatGot a full pack of Seagrams under the seat
And boom, there it is...three freaks
Thick, walkin' with a natural switch
And Dave starts getting that itch, huh
You know a 'vettes only got two seats
But Dave wasn't listening to me
All three of them jumped in the car
Hit Red Lobster and went straight to the bar
But them drinks ain't cheap out there son
Five dollars for one of them daiquiris
And Dave was treatin'
And the girls was sure 'nuff eatin'
Two hundred dollars worth of fish
And Dave wants to make a little wish
A little something that he'd seen in a porno movie
Play BBD and said do me

Ice Cube can do that because he's extremely talented and versatile. Doesn't mean all the rappers can, tho.
