Country Music Sucks: Wu Tang Clan - C.R.E.A.M.

The format was supposed to be that *you guys* would suggest some country song and *I* would suggest the hip-hop song. But I guess we can do this back asswords. Let's see what happens.

Title: C.R.E.A.M.
Artist: Wu-Tang Clan
Year: 1993



Quick take:

Classic hip-hop sampling here. Wu-Tang always blended understated beats and deceptively deep stories. But as catchy as it sounds, was "CREAM" an acronym before Wu-Tang made it up?

Make Country Hip-Hop Count:

  • Cars - Minivan reference! "Rollin' in [Mazda] MPV's... Ch-chick-POW!"
  • Baby - This song has no time for girls. It's about growing up and surviving on the streets.
  • Dirt - Uuuuhhh, Ol' Dirty Bastard y'all (not featured here, but still). RIP Dirt Dog.
  • Small Town - Shaolin land, er Staten Island. This is the smallest of NYC's 5 boroughs, so that is as small town as it gets.
  • Guitar - In a place where they pull out gats for fun, there's just the sound of stray shots
  • Good ol' days - "I grew up on the crime side, the New York Times side. Stayin' alive was no jive." Reminds me of my days in Mandeville, LA. Grew up the other side of the highway from the gated community. No jive.

Best Part: 

No doubt. The hook.

Cash rules everything around me
C.R.E.A.M., get the money
Dollar dollar bill, y'all

Worst Part:

I could listen to 5 more minutes of this song. Needed 2 or 3 more Wu-Tangs.

Did I Download It?: 

I got this, homies.

What I’d Rather Be Listening To:

But seriously, they made the C.R.E.A.M. acronym up. It's catchy and classic, so C.R.E.A.M. is often referenced, what does it really mean?

I'll just leave this country-ish song here (does Southern Rock count?). It is at least as powerful as C.R.E.A.M. though.

P-F21: Week 10 NFL Bonus - Baseball is over, now what?

Losing baseball season isn’t like losing football, but it can still be a difficult event for some. While we are deprived of baseball season’s physical presence, we can still reconcile -- you know what, we’ll figure it out. Below are some ways you are honoring the memory or just moving right along. Sleep Astros!

It’s a mad world. Let’s parse out some good. Everyone gets POSITIVE bonus scores! (One thing though. I forgot to add “in the NFL” to my bonus question, but maybe you guys behaved yourselves) A Northmen (AN): “Brittney's dad will no longer be her conservator! #freebritney” She went on with a bunch of crap about TSwift, but I’ll spare you. On Brit, of course, she should have the right the fk up her life. That’s great news! +4 T-Horns (AM): “Matt Jones developing earlier than expected.” Wait, are we talking about Mac Jones? +2? Astros! (AP): “OU/Texas coming to the SEC!” This is great news. See what happened is Texas got in OU’s head, then Texas “Trojan Horsed” their themselves in the SEC, where Texas will then ruin the SEC from the inside. +3 Buddy the Chimp (BC): “Bananas.” Buddy, you get bananas all the time. Dream bigger. +3 Cornholio's Bunghole (BO): “Just destroying America is not enough for Joe Biden, so he destroyed Afghanistan. I wonder what country will be ne

1 I once watched this planetarium show on dark matter. I’m familiar with matter. I’m not saying current or future me could define it, but it is like -- stuff. However dark matter isn’t the dark stuff. Dark matter is like all the other stuff that we aren’t familiar with, and on top of that, apparently the universe contains an unknown amount of matter that we cannot observe! 2 Speaking of matter, small wins matter. Not only do small wins add up to major accomplishments, but small wins have also been shown to give enormous emotional boosts. (I think you see where I am going with this.) 3 Enough said.
