Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
It’s Hammer time. MC Hammer has changed his name to King Hammer and released a new video for a song called “Better Run Run.” So who should be running? Jay-Z. Apparently, Hova alluded to Hammer’s money trouble on the Kanye track, “So Appalled.” And this is Hammer’s response. Sample lyrics: “Devil said, ‘Imma give you the world’ / ‘I’ll take it, plus give me a girl’ / ‘Mr. Devil, can you give me a sign’ / He said, ‘Throw the Roc up, that’s one of mine.’” Yowch.

Amy Winehouse has come out of “hiatus” to spawn a new single, “It’s My Party.” The track was produced by Mark Ronson, and it’s a cover of Lesley Gore’s 1963 track of the same name. So … how does it sound? Well, I’ll let you be the judge. To me, it sounds, and I hate to say this, slurry. Musically, it’s nothing new: Motown redux. Vocally, it’s kind of sad. But I’m no Simon Cowell! Tell us what you think of the latest from Miss Winehouse in the comments. The song will appear on Quincy Jones’ upcoming “tribute” album, Soul Bossa Nostra, which drops November 9. [ONTD] Keep reading »
