Riff: Pitbull – “Don’t Stop the Party feat. TJR”

Nov 19, 2012

Just cause you ain’t me, don’t hate me/As a matter fact you should thank me

from Don't Stop the Party lyrics by Pitbull

Imagine the worst Cancun, spring break, bullshit ass lame party, and this is what will be playing. The beat stays at exactly one note, and Pitbull’slyrics are the perfect foil to this mainstream garbage. He hangs on tight to this “me against the world ethos,” which is a tired, long forgotten trend.
