Song of the Day 4/30/09: Busdriver - Me-Time (With The Pulmonary Palimpsets)
If you're keen on Busdriver I don't have to tell you what to expect from his new track "Me Time" - you already know his rhymes are so fast they make bullets look like molasses. But this seems like a whole other level - are those even words? It might take 3 or 4 listens to realize yes, yes they are, and damn are they tightly woven. He kicks off with a fiercely sarcastic warm-up (a do-re-mi that's all "me me me") before keeping pace with a beat which samples - no shit - Mozart's Sonata in A Major, but so fast it's trying to chase down The Benny Hill Theme in a footrace. Uh, weird, but why else do we love Busdriver? This one's a whirlwind, and it upholds Busdriver's status of one of hip hop's finest innovators.
