Riff: Will.I.Am – “Feelin’ Myself”

Apr 23, 2014

Look up in the mirror, the mirror look at me/The mirror be like baby you the shit god dammit/You the shit, you the shit, you the shit god dammit/You the shit god dammit, you the shit, you the shit

from Feeling Myself lyrics by Will.I.Am

It’s not what you’re thinking. Well, sort of. It isn’t a grainy soft-core porn starring one of the biggest disappointments in hip-hop history, but it is one long narcissistic stroke of the ego. The analog beat is slathered in dirty Mustard and is as generic and underdeveloped as Miley Cyrus‘ body.
