Anthony Hudson, designer of album covers for Geffen in the ’70s, begat one Saul Hudson, top-hatted, amazing-haired Gibson wizard.

“Racks on Racks” is the current THISMYSONG champ on Power 106 when I’m out driving, and Berner’s & K.R.I.T.’s “Yoko Ono” is almost there (despite the presence of Wiz), but “Welcome to My Hood” is welcome in my car when it comes on the radio too. It is godawful and catchy, and Luda’s verse has more stereotypes than a Tyler Perry movie, plus he says WHOOOO in response to his own lyrical hotness and I hate it when dudes do that, I HATE IT, but his glasses-wearing makes up for those things. Plus foxy-and-wise-older-man-on-whom-I-have-a-crush Bun B says Lotta dudes sayin that they can but they don’t/Lotta boys sayin that they Gs but they ain’t/Mess around, get layed down in the paint, a reference to Emeka Okafor’s experience in downtown Los Angeles last night.
