Poker and Hip-Hop… Put it in the Mix!
Some of our artists have just started playing poker for the first time. Tylarik went to Vegas and got his introduction to the game and Brizite has hosted a game or two at one of his homes in Houston. Personally, I know very little about the game so all the fuss and attention grabbing is a little beyond me at this point. In addition to those new developments, while at the studio recording a track on one of our newest artist, I recently overheard a conversation between Tylarik and Brizite where they plan on teaming up to record a song based on gambling, specifically the game of poker.
So I thought to myself, OK here comes another one of those “Bling Bling” songs. You know, one of those songs that have no content and incessantly repeat chorus lines like “ I got that Rolex and more money than my baby’s momma new boyfriend,” or something like that. But after a discussion with them and a fresher evaluation of my initial assessment, I came to a different conclusion. After all there are many hit songs based on money and gambling. A few that come to mind immediately are: “The Gambler” by Kenny Rogers, “Easy Money” by Billy Joel, and “Money for Nothing” by Dire Straits.
So, upon his insistence, Tylarik and I met again and discussed going into the studio and making a new recording based around the poker playing lifestyle but with a view towards taking the old Hop-Hop cliché “Bling Bling” to a whole new level. He was very convincing and had already completed two of the three verses that he plans to use. To say the least, I was very impressed with his first draft!
Now he’s got me thinking this just might work! Even though I’m still a little skeptical and apprehensive about gambling away my hard earn money, I believe I’ll delve into this gambling world by maybe making a few more inquiries, buying a “dummies guide to playing poker,” or better yet trying out one of those online gambling casinos like partypoker .
What y’all think? Holla back!!!
That’s some funny s$$t!
