Track Checker: Tyga "Rack City"

Well, it's high time we looked at "Rack City" by Tyga?

"Who's Tyga?" - everyone but American high schoolers.

Well, he's been around for about five years. He's part of the Young Money recording crew. He's got a hundred mixtapes, and he was nominated for a grammy for some reason (that's a big deal to everyone). Good career, so far! But HOW IS HIS MUSIC? I don't know. Do you think we should find out? I don't know if I want to. This song is crazy popular (platinum), check this out (from wikipedia):

The music video for "Rack City" directed by Chris Robinson has been on YouTube since September 8, 2011. It has received over 25 million views since. Tyga released another video for "Rack City" on January 9, 2012.

This song is so popular that it got two videos. Plus 25 million views? The population of New York is 25 million! That's not the city, that's the whole state. 25 Million people live in the country of Ghana! And I don't know where that even is! So good video views Tyga. Let's add another view to that count and check out the video.....get the kids, gather the family around, this is going to be great!

Keep your ears open for the answers to these questions: What is "Rack City"? Is it a place? Is it a kind of shelf? Is it a store like TJ Maxx? Who is DJ Mustard?

Booooooo! Well that wasn't very good. And I know that's not the official video, I don't even care. At least know that Rack city is a place. Uh, a biological place? No wonder teenagers love that song, they love the hook because everyone is so dumb! And the lyrics! USDA grade A choice cut. This is a great song to do a word count! Let's do it:

"Rack City"  = 54 times
"Bitch" = 42
"Hundreds" = 13

He says "Rack City" 54 times! In a two and a half minute song! That means he's saying "Rack City" every three seconds. What!?! That's insane. Go ahead and sit at your desk or whatever and just say "Rack City" every three seconds for two and a half minutes. DO IT! If you love this song (which you do especially if you're at an "adult club") then you'll accept my challenge and do it. Go ahead. Nothing is stopping you. Spread your wings and say "Rack City" every three seconds for two and a half minutes.

Did you do it? I hope so. Otherwise, this song stinks. Actually, the word "otherwise" is wrong, I should have deleted that. This song entirely stinks.

As for the that the only beat that Cash Money knows how to put out?  It honestly sounds a lot like Juvenile in the late 90s. Come on dudes. It's time to innovate. And the lyrics? This is NOTHING NEW AT ALL NOT EVEN A LITTLE BIT. This is like a 2 Live Crew topic from 1989. That's ooooollllllllldddddd. So we'll just cut to the chase and say that it's wack. 

IN CONCLUSION: An old topic with weak rhymes over a played out beat. Clap. Clap. Clap.

Consider this though: Tyga is probably going to have to do this song on tour like every night for a few years, so he'll probably say "Rack City" like a million times in his life and get really tired of it. Justice.

Rack City Bitch. 
Clap.  Clap. Clap. Clap. Clap. Clap. Clap. Clap. Clap. Clap. Clap. Clap. Clap. Clap.
