artworks-000058011217-qf8zpw-t500x500If we’re going to settle on ratchet & B as the preferred name of this sub-genre, we’ll have to credit credit Jodeci as being the Jesus of this shit. They were wearing leather suits and trashing hotel rooms back when ratchet was merely a name for a handgun. Although if anyone has seminal tour footage of K-Ci, Jojo and Devante sliding through Shreveport circa ’92, send that on over. The debonair hedonists behind Southern Hospitality get credit for the latest installment of their BET Uncut mixes that never aired. Passion of the Weiss has officially shifted into it’s “let’s try to spur the American birth rate mode.” If you’re familiar with Idiocracy, it’s important that everyone reading this breeds, because we’re all seers and Monie Love told me so, and I don’t want to see a world in which people actually believe that Marco Rubio loves 2Pac.

The only real flaw in this very fertile mix is the exclusion of Ty$’s “Paranoid.” It is currently running LA radio and it is just about the only thing that runs through my head. It is the most honest and real song aside from Future’s “Honest.” But more importantly, I just realized that it basically lifts the beat pattern to Robin S’s “Show Me Love” with the themes of Rockwell’s “Somebody’s Watching Me.” This makes it an easy candidate for song of the year, especially when you’re stoned and think that you are a victim of espionage via cameras planted in your Stella Artois.
