Spank Rock is the next Robert Frost:

9 May

I hear that before Spank Rock writes, he lights some scented candles and opens a bottle of Bordeaux. His writing method is meticulous and he writes with quill. If he makes a change, he throws the entire piece of paper away. It is clearly a draining and emotional process for him. Where else could beautiful lines like:

“From the club to the bed
brown bag on your head
in, out, lips split
cough, spit, eat dick”


“B. O. O. T. A. Y.
you ain’t got no alibi
you ugly, yeah yeah
bitch fuck me yeah yeah”

come from but a tortured poet?

In the song B-O-O-T-A-Y, Amanda Blank Illivia plays the perfect counterpart to Spank Rocks more deliberate lyrical style with whimsical mysterious lines such as:

“Yes I know this ass is pretty
don’t forget about my titties”

Like many others, I can’t wait to watch Spank Rock continue to develop and hone his craft in the years to come. Esteemed Journalist Thomas Friedman said it best in a recent column where he posed the question “where have all the sex rappers gone?” Mr. Friedman brings up an excellent point that since the age of 2 Live Crew, there has yet to be a comparable lyrical talent to provide quality sex raps.

I will suggest Mr. Friedman and all of you that you consider Spank Rock as the next contender.

Edit: I would feel bad about the graphic content of the songs except the one younger reader I know of’s favorite music genre is gangster rap

    […] can hear a painstaking attention to detail that rarely exists in musicianship, besides of course Spank Rock. The layers of sound are phenomenal and the different instrument parts reflect high musical talent […]
