K-Fed drops a heater. New album streaming in full. It is really bad. Whether or not he ruined Britnety Spear's career or not is disputable, but if listening to this is any clue it seems likely. Featuring genius lyrics like : "Girls say I'm cocky, I think I'm humble, Basically ya'll just talk like Bryant Gumbel". Gumbel ryhmes wit' humble, basically, yo. You are in for a listening treat.(warning: steaming aol music site)

This is hypnotically bad. Thanks, Brodie; there's no chance I would have found this on my own.

Take back that jab at Yoko, please.

And I always thought 'Recurring' was K-Fed's best album.

In Portuguese, it means bring your ass to the dance floor.

I want to see some titty and a little bit of kitty.
Want to know where to go when I'm in your city.

Yes, we had already heard a bit of his genius already. (Then he did that "Oh I was just kidding with 'Popozao', that wasn't the real release, now here's something you'll really like" thing...gah)

He could have a bright future as a wrestling heel though. He's been appearing on WWE RAW for a couple of weeks now, and the crowd dislikes him even more than any of the regular "bad guys" on the show. Last time he wore an "America's Most Hated" shirt. It's funny stuff, in spite of everything.

Last night I issued a challenge to K-fed. http://hateon.blogspot.com/2006/10/k-fed-if-you-want-to-hate-me-cool-hate.html

I want to fight him. I'm serious. Someone find him and tell him I want to meet him for a no rules, no weapons, no shirts fight.

I'll whup his ass.

This is totally irrelevant, but... quonsar liked Creed!

Sorry, whenever music comes up on metafilter and quonsar comments, I always think of that thread. I just can't wrap my mind around the q rocking out to Creed, of all things. It makes me lolphin.

I once saw a post on Fark regarding his Teen Choice Awards performance that pretty much summed it up. The writer wrote "I keep expecting Ashton Kutcher to jump out and say 'You've been punked America' whenever he performs".

posted by Parannoyed at 4:53 PM on October 27, 2006


He seems to have a very poor sense of timing and displays little adherence to meter. Extra, unnecessary syllables are thrown in all over the place and it's very, very distracting. I'm not a rap music fan per se, but it seems that even mediocre rappers have a very solid sense of rhythm. With this shit his timing is frequently entirely off compared to the music. I don't need to point out that the clever plays-on-words, puns, double-entendres and elegant economy of word use, so well done by guys like Eminem, Jay Z etc. are totally absent here. The fact that this guy owns a Ferrari F430 Spyder fills me with unabashed rage.

I give the record a 0 out of 13 possible pairs of extra-large boxer shorts.

jfuller writes "After he met up with Yoko? Pretty much."

Well, he did get a bit smarmy, but his Live in NYC was great - Instant Karma, Cold Turkey. Also, Working Class Hero. His love songs weren't as edgy, but I liked his sense of melody. I have come to respect what Yoko does as an artist, but I really wish she hadn't wanted to sing. Hey, he fell in love, which softened him up, and I can't blame him for it nor expect anyone to stay in their 20s forever. I don't think of Britney the same way at all. She never was taken seriously as any sort of artist.

posted by papercake at 6:46 PM on October 27, 2006


It's as if Vanilla Ice started off as a famous actor in such hits as Cool as Ice and then decided to try out music. I mean... Shaq at least picked a unique rap group for which to add a verse.

But, really, if Fergie can rip off Gwen Stefani and get away with it, K-Fed might not have too much trouble ripping off Eminem and making it a success.

fenriq rapped: VulcanMike, except, you know, Eminem has some talent.

I said that if Fergie can rip off Stefani, then Federline may get away with ripping off Eminem.

You're either implying that Fergie does have talent, or that she and Stefani do not. The latter, I suppose, is arguable. The former? I’m Fergie Ferg, and me love you long time. Definitely closer to Vanilla Ice than Stefani.
