Tha Dogg Pound ft. David Banner - Faknass Hoes

I could've just tacked this onto the Banner post I did yesterday, but shit, this song deserves a post all of its own. If I was ever presented with a "either never listen to Faknass Hoes again or delete half of your music collection"... well, I don't know what I'd do. I probably have a lot of ass songs in my collection, so I think I'd go with Faknass Hoes. But even if I didn't have so many ass songs, I'd still have to think about it long and hard. It's just that good. When those synths come in

The song is hidden on Tha Dogg Pound's relatively boring Cali Iz Active, which came out this past summer. But with David Banner producing the beat and him all over the song, it's a misnomer to say that this song is a DPGC song. It's really all Banner. And that's part of what makes this song sound so great. When I think of it as David Banner's, a song called Faknass Hoes sounds a lot less dumb, or just that much smarter. I always hear about how rap music contains so much social commentary and I have never know what to do with that. I'm not a SOC major, but it always sounds like some bullshit to me. However, when this kind of stuff comes out of David Banner it's hard to dismiss it as simply a reflection of society. He brings this socio-intellectual spirit to the song that couldn't've been had without him, ex: read sample of lyrics below.

"Pimpin like a muthafuckin triiiiiiiiiiick!"

"Go 'n' get yo money/fuck them faknass hoes!"

"You know that I know that you that I know that you a biiiitch!
You know that I know that you that I know that you a hoooe!"

"What can a bitch do for a young nigga?/hit the stage young hoe/bring a nigga six figgas."
