Hey everyone! Beats and Eats has made it to ten weeks of mixing classic hip hop slaps and your favorite snacks! This week we're pursuing some more... exotic selections, in sound and taste.
Kool Keith's Sex Style
As far as the rap game goes, Bronx MC Kool Keith, known for performing under a number of monikers and alter egos is prolific for being as talented as he is weird. His trademark style usually revolves around abstract lyrics, internal/ off-beat rhymes, and strange subject matter more often than not based on movie genres. Being the self-proclaimed pioneer of the subgenre of hip-hop known as horrorcore in his previous album Dr. Octagonecylogist (in which he raps from the perspective of an alien gynecologist from Jupiter), Sex Style is pretty much self explanatory in concept and theme. It's sexually provocative and explicit, sampling old porno movies and skin flicks while dropping lines about sexually explicit acts. Needless to say, Sex Style is certainly sexy and no doubt will arouse your attention.
It's plain common sense when you're listening to Sex Styles, you gotta be slurpin' on something sensual. Oysters have been notorious throughout history to be aphrodisiacs, foods that are known to trigger sexual desire. It definitely fits the concept being pushed by Keith in Sex Styles. So while you turn on to Keith, turn on to these delectable mollusks. Have it cooked, have it raw; doesn't matter much. Hell, why not go the whole nine yards and get that shag rug out and the fireplace burning. This pairing is guaranteed to get anyone feelin' a little titillated.
