‘Fat Rhymes Every Time, B*tch, Roseanne Bars’

There’s just too much that’s too good going on today. I think I’ve finally joined the Wale rapwagon. The killer beat by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek helps — as does K’naan breezy, Weezy verse — but nothing outshines the  kill line quoted in the above header. Emcees worldwide are no doubt lamenting not having thought of that one first. Hell, I coulda had a rap career with that line.
