When Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now” was released in December, reactions almost unanimously shot it down aside from Busta’s verse. I didn’t think it was a bad song in the fact Bussa Bus and Wayne both did their thing and it would not have been a bad look for Trevor if this was his single. Regardless, I’ve bumped it enough times to say I am a fan of the record.
All that being said, there is no chance in hell I could rap it bar for bar. Hot 97’s own Drewski, Angie Martinez and DJ Enuff are the anti-me and a trio who could probably take their act on the road after watching this video. During a moment of down time at The Angie Martinez Show, Mister Cee put money on the line after hearing the three could lip-synch the record without faltering; something I’m sure most of us would seen as an easy payday. What happened next was Drew donning Chris’ vocals and Enuff taking the record home channeling his inner-President Carter.
My Lord. Angie rapped Busta’s part as if she was the one who actually wrote the verse. Yeah, they likely hear the song more than most of us on a daily basis, but spitting that verse with no hiccups deserve some type of recognition. I couldn’t do it even if you told me Stacey Dash was butt naked in the next room playing with a Shake Weight. And Angie was doing this while cracking open a fresh soy sauce packet to season her Chinese food. That’s my type of woman.
Who knows if I will remember this video come December, but as of right now I feel comfortable saying this ranks as one of my favorite moments of 2011 so far.
