With all the hype surrounding the All-City Chess Club supergroup, I was expecting something fantastically mind-blowing from them. I was certainly dissapointed, but to my surprise Shawty Mane, better known as Justin Bieber, came through in the clutch and released a new hip-hop song through his Twitter entitled ‘Speaking In Tongues’.
Now we’ve seen him freestyle on Tim Westwood radio before, and ocassionaly fill in for Ludacris on his song ‘Baby’, but never quite like this.
“Matter fact I’m killin this track you’re a slacker,
Sacked like a sacker, hello Mr. Brady,
tell him leave his hair to the guy who sings Baby”
Lyrically, he’s no Nas, but his humor and presence on the microphone put him in the miniscule group of people who can bring excitement when rapping. Now if we could just get some of these backpack & weed rappers to show a little emotion…
