"Bang Bang"-The Knux (2008)

There is some sort of bizarre Twilight Zone thing going on with my music collection these days. First off, I randomly decided to listen to a shuffle on my iPod, and bam, this song was in the playlist. Then, the very next day, I decided to shuffle my Windows Media Player and this song was at the top of the list...and it gets even freakier. Saturday, woke up, turned on the TV and bam, the video for this song was playing...F-R-E-A-K-Y. Must be a sign...a sign to post about it. The New Orleans rap duo, The Knux are a rap duo that I can digest and I'm a tough cookie to impress when it comes to the new breed of hip-hop. These real-life brothers are being compared to the likes of OutKast, possibly since they collectively bend the rules a bit. I like the creepy sparse gut bucket guitar drive of this song, it's really infectious. I also like how it's totally not preachy with it's message about gun control. Dang good song and me loves the video for it's West Side Story meets The Outsiders...respectively.
