Dimitry's mix reminded me that I've been meaning to do a post on one of the classic songs of all-time, Khia's "My Neck, My Back (Lick It)." I mean, for real, this is just perfect. The original starts off with these sick, minimalist drum snares and Ms. Khia talking about popping your pussy and it's on. An equally minimalist bass comes in, some percussion and keys and you have one of the dirtiest song ever done by a female artist. I love it, love the fact that she's talking about sex and getting a guy to take care of her and being dirty and filthy. It's the perfect addition to the whole booty genre, a nice challege to the boys' only vibe of that shit.
Make sure to check out the two house, dance remixes by Tom Neville and Tobi Neumann. While I still love the more minimalist, hip-hop take of the original, these ones keep growing on me. In particular, the Tom Neville one is just a rager, gets a head of steam and just goes. The Kardinal Beats one is a reggae rework, doesn't work for me. Make sure to buy her LP, Thugs and Misses, and I'll let you know when the next album drops. Supposedly this summer, but I'll believe it when I see it.
