Choon Choosday: Tinie Tempah – Pass Out

28 January, 2014

I was tempted to class this is as a tune by a band I hate. Tinie Tempah has a silly name, a silly voice, wears silly glasses, and he can’t rap – he isn’t credible enough to hate, he just makes me laugh, and not in a way he might intend. At the very least, a rapper should have decent lyrics, but his are just daft – “I live a very very very wild lifestyle” and “I have so many clothes I keep some at my aunt’s house” are but two of the worst examples and I could go on but I don’t want to spoil the fun you will have in finding shit rhymes for yourself.

So why does a tune I have so much dislike for make it onto the ChCh list? Aswell as lyrics, a rapper needs decent beats and the production on this (by Labrinth who provides the superior vocals) is just brilliant. It builds and drops in the right places, and that 8-bit video-game riff is enough to get it a Choosday billing by itself – so insistent it will grab you and drag you to the dance floor and stick in your head for days. Oh, and one other thing – the lyrics may be shit, but it’s the only song outside of Pink Floyd’s The Final Cut album to namecheck Southampton, and that, my friends, makes it a

Chooooonn!!

  1. Not a huge fan of his either but it is okay on the dancefloor
