I Like It (feat. Das Racist) - Talib Kweli
Das Racist broke up this past year, which was a sad day for any rap song. But if you’re gonna go out, you might as well go out on top. Case in point? “I Like It” is the best song Talib Kweli has done since “So Low” in 2010, and may be one of the five best Das Racist songs ever.
The beat is genius, as is expected from producer Oh No, sampling DeBarge before transitioning into verbal anarchy. Kool A.D. opens up the affair with one of his bizarro raps that we’ve grown accustomed to, spitting absurdity like “Right now I’m drinking water/Thinking harder/One in six people on earth like drinking water/Or was it one in five/Some say one in nine/Google that/Wait… How much water do you think that Google has?”
Talib brings us back to reality with a verse that is essentially a sixteen bar compliment to Das Racist and the New York underground rap revolution they fostered, both blatantly and through political symbolism. In a way the verse functions as a eulogy to the band as well.
Heems closes the song with a pointed verse, that may sound just as absurd as his cohort’s but is much more politically barbed. “Towers came down/put the burden on the brown/I’m murdering these pounds/Eatin’ burgers in their towns” is a line that is both charged and goofy. He straddles the line all the way until, finishing with a metaphorical line about a societal white face: “I wear it, and I paint my face white/And I go out and drink and dance all night.”

i just discovered my school’s conservatory. yes, conservatory. we have a conservatory.
there’s a section for itty bitty/evergreen bonsai trees, a section for cacti, a section for fleurs, and my favorite section is A MINI FUCKING RAINFOREST.
in the rainforest bit it’s warm and humid and they pump a bit of mist in sometimes to keep the foliage happy happy and there’s a koi pond and a tiny bamboo grove, cacao trees, giant bird of paradise plants, and tons of other beautiful things i can’t name oh my god it is pure pure magic and it smells so wonderful.
i’m convinced they either rescued or got the koi for cheap cus one of them always swims tilted down on his left side, one has a funky eye, and one had a suspicious looking white spot on its tail fin, but we’re all pals, as long as they are happy/don’t die.
i tried to figure out what kind of music they like this morning and i think they were feeling the organum in invitatorium deum verum but who can be sure. well, me, once i figure out how to communicate with them. we’ll get there.
thank you for your time. that’s all.
