Listening To “The Wire”: This Post Could Someday Save Your Life
If you missed last night’s episode of The Wire–and you really shouldn’t have, as it’s generally the best 58 minutes of television all week–you missed a well-played shout-out to the Baltimore club scene: In order to smoke out a New York dealer who’s invaded their turf, two for-hire killers wander the street and ask people if they’ve heard of Young Leek’s club favorite “Jiggle It”–their logic being that, as one character notes, “they don’t listen to that shit up in New York.” The first guy they find who doesn’t know the track must be from the Big Apple, and therefore, must get popped.
We don’t want this to happen to you, so in a public service to our readers, we present Leek’s breakthrough track. If anyone asks you about it, for God’s sake, recite the lyrics by heart! You may even want to jiggle it while singing, just for extra emphasis.
