OFWGKTA - Fuck This Christmas (OFWGKTA, 2010)
Due to Lil B’s tumblr, I never saw that this was released the other day because my dashboard was full of pictures of Brandon, bitches with Brandon’s name on their ass, and a coffee mug that some kid made in shop class brandished with Brandon’s face. Not that any of these things are bad by any means, but Lil B’s output of trivial things that happened to be based pretty much drowned out anything that I actually cared about on tumblr (you know, all the shit that’s thought provoking and entertaining, not that ethiopian-porn pictures dudes tend to post, and those twit-pic-dicks the girls tend to post).
Since we’re not getting GOBLIN for Christmas like Tyler originally promised, we get this in its place; that kinda makes this stand-alone song rather bitter sweet. This is the second rap Christmas song of value this year, following Kanye’s Dipset-assisted Christmas in Harlem, which isn’t really that good. Maybe it’s because I despise Christmas songs in general, and the entire festive nature of the holiday, but I tend to dislike songs with Christmas-themes attached. Fuck This Christmas, is clearly, a bit different from those other songs in theory, though it still manages to capture the spirit in some twisted, macabre way.
The most notable thing about this is the verse from currently-AWOL Earl Sweatshirt, who drops a nice verse to start off the song, making those bloggers who only listen to Earl and claim they ride for OF cum for joy. Tyler comes in next, and it’s pretty clear he also produced the track at sound, as his fingerprints are all over the dirty boards. Like Earl’s verse, his is short but sweet, proclaiming that he’s Satan’s Christmas wrap over the gift of God. Hodgy never appears beyond the hilarious chorus which all three serenade Santa and Jesus over, holding bloody razor blades while laughing maniacally. I’m sure spiked eggnog is somewhere in the corner of the studio.
uh. FREE EARL
