Hyperbole is something I need to work on in my writing. However, let’s use some hyperbole right here. I don’t care. I don’t care. I don’t care. Bun B’s “Get Throwed” is one of the best songs since the turn of the century. In fact, and not that this means a damn, “get throwed” was the first “turn up.”
Regardless, the year 2005, I tell ya. Bun B was coming into his own as a solo artist and was the guy to feature on your song if you needed someone to verbally emasculate a track to the point where the song’s DNA totally altered. Fat Young Jeezy was the best Young Jeezy. Like Bun, it was tough for Young to do any wrong around this time. The modern day Negro spiritual classic, Thug Motivation 101, touched down in July of that same year. Z-Ro’s ghetto crooning was unique only to himself, making the hook here virtually timeless.
And while he didn’t appear in the video, Jay-Z returned the favor to Bun and Pimp for handing him one of his biggest hits ever, “Big Pimpin’.” The song was the perfect storm of sorts, and still is. There’s no point in recapping where each of the song’s participants is in 2013. Google is working beautifully today.
Anywho, it’s Friday night. Hopefully you’re leaving all the work on your desk and not worrying about it until Monday morning. Enjoy yourself, and do what the song says.
