XZHIBIT – “Choke Me, Spank Me (Pull My Hair)”

X’s paean to rough sex fails because a)the hump-thump beat is strictly missionary-position; b)X sounds far too polite about it (and isn’t creepy enough to work that to his advantage a la Slick Rick); c) it’s not Xzhibit asking to be choked and spanked, which really would be something new. Though in fact there is something new – to me – in this, which is the first overtly jokey, entirely disrespectful 9/11 reference I’ve heard on a hip-hop record. “See her twin towers and I’m ready to crash” slavers Xzhibit – the terrorists haven’t won yet.
