Blonde Jeremy & Akira The Don - If You Seek Amy FIrst dropped: Jan 29th 2010, on ATD20
You dig what's happening here? That's right! This week, every day, I'll be focusing in on a joint from ATD20. A comic strip inspired by the song, and the song itself. Might even be a video one day, you never know. And today, it's If You Seek Amy, which I did with my ole pal Blonde Jeremy Deacon. Actually, he did the vast majority of it. I just rapped on the end and mastered the thing.
We've been talking about doing this ever since I posted the OG version, as performed by Miss Britney Spears, last year. If you peep that post you'll notice I wasn't feeling it straight away, but BJ WAS, and made it known in the comments. I think we went for a drink that night, by which time I'd listened to the song about 12 times and was assured of its brilliance.
Anyway, as often happens when I'm doing a mixtape, I reach out to a few of my closest peoples to see if they have any ideas. And BJ reminded me of this. And I was like, yes! I got into the thing on Thursday night, like 11pm, and vibed to it for a while - I was like, rah, this is so nice... classy and sleazy at the same time. A vision came before me. A room, a red curtain, a stage. Then that flow hit me, along with most of the words, and I battered it out on my knackered ole keyboard in my non-touch typing, fore-fingered fashion that sounds like a typewriter and cases my girl no end of grief, stood up, declared myself Awesome, and spat it into my AKG C414B with faith and fire and finesse.
And later that day, it was unleashed unto the world, as track 3 on ATD20.
We always say this, but me and BJ really ought to do more stuff together. The last thing we did was that New Theme From Star Trek, FFS. FYI (the acronyms keep on coming!) BJ's been working on an ALBUM For a year or so, and last time I heard it, the thing was AMAZING. Apparently its gotten better since then. I am well looking forward to it. And you'll be the first to hear about it, promise.
OK, over and out for the now. Hit the jump for the lyrics (well, my bit anyway). Oh, and keep it locked on the Blob Blog, output has been intensifying over that way lately. And make sure you're here tomorrow, for another song, and another comic.
I told you I wasn't messing about this year...
