Almost Famous (The Sexy Lady Ep) (EP)
by Yung Berg
Released: Jul 2007
Berg's coiled flow and nasal voice are juxtaposed against Junior's light, digitally enhanced hook, allowing "Sexy Lady" to approximate the bubble-hop magic of recent Lil' Wayne/Chris Brown collaborations. As you might expect from the song title, the lyrics are lover-boy drivel, pointing toward the rootless lust of adolescence. The production, meanwhile, sounds like Love Jawn 101 -- tiny handclaps, sleazy horn bursts and smeared synth atmospherics -- but the cumulative effect conjures a post-prom/pre-Clearblue magic.
