Diddy's "Come to Me" has a hold on meâ€¦everything from the beat, the hook, the rapping and the dancing that goes with the video. All of these elements are very different in their ways yet they're all very much the same: They SUCK.
This song is one of the most terrible I've heard take over airplay so far this year, and it ranks right next to "Laffy Taffy" and "Betcha Can't do it Like Me." How did this wack song take over the airwaves? It's too garbage for program directors to automatically want to add it to the top rotation radio list, yet it made its way right into heavy airplay. Not to mention that the joint practically bought out BET's daytime slot and stepped into "106 and Park's" countdown (watch it hit No. 2 in a few -- kids ain't really voting for that garbage, b). This is simply cash flow at its best.
This song makes me sick.
Now don't get me wrong. I liked Diddy when he was real... When he was Puffy. I was feelin' the Biggie thing, the Mase days, the early Mary J., all that. But times have changed and now the industry has been turned into a robotic demon, and pimping the radio as a means to brainwash listeners into falling for a (wack) joint is one of its characteristics. A lot of people have been buying into this scheme, getting the game all twisted up; a lot of these songs you think are in constant rotation because they're good. But the truth of the matter is that most of this music is trash, a way to make a dollar, and there is absolutely no love involved when putting the music together.
"Puffy -- he does what he does. I'm not gonna front, there's music that he does that I'll be dancing to and just having fun. You do need that type of music when dancing with a honey. I think it's all valid, but then it gets to a point where people should admit if they're really down with Hip Hop or just down with the industry."
So which one are you?
