I wasn't expecting to do music reviews, but I've been hearing some good music and I want to share it.
I first heard "Whoopty" by CJ on Jan. 18 -- two months ago -- and I saved it to my playlist right away. Whoopty puts that pulse into you, but it's not only the beat that does it for me. The energy of CJ's delivery and his wordplay makes you want to jump around.
Smokin' the zah-zah
It goes straight to the mah-tah
Then I'm up in the choppa / Hittin' the cha-cha / Open his lah-tah
Then he dance to bachata
I don't know what all he's saying right there, but that's my part right there.
The lyrics is a lot of street talk -- a lot of hustler talk. But how Whoopty is mixed (e.g., looping the verses in the background so it sounds like ad-libs) makes it danceable as well. For better or for worse, it's the best of both worlds.
