Cassidy - Get No Better

Cassidy's press release proclaims he's a first rate lyricist. From the evidence presented here, the case collapses. 'Me and you / It don't get no better' he croons and then 'Go to my hotel and undress yourself / And after we have sex I still respect you if you respect yourself'. You can't rhyme another word with itself and then call yourself a lyricist. And that's avoiding the crass nature of the song. Is this what modern hip-hop has become? As cheesy, dull and as sexist as the most brain dead rock band? Cassidy ought to be thoroughly ashamed of himself. I wonder what his mother thinks? The song sounds as though the bass line was bought off the peg as well. Commercial hip pop shit that's the equivalent of a recycled musical big mac but not quite as appealing. The press release proclaims him to be part of hip-hop's next generation. God help us.

At least the remixes attempt to inject some sort of life into it. They mostly fail, but the Johnny Toobad thing adds a reggae dub that actually sounds musical. There's a video as well, just in case you want to see Cassidy acting like a prick as well as listening to him.
