Rihanna And Other Women Of The World: Ghostface Has Your Back

Mar 5th, 2009 // 6 Comments


Ghosftace Killah and Novel have recorded a song dedicated to Rihanna and “my women out there getting beat up” and put it on the Internet. At first, with discussions of getting “sexed just right,” I was worried that it was gonna be one of those awkward “thanks, but no thanks” dedications. But as it settles in, it’s heartfelt, sly, and kind of funny, as Ghostface assures Rihanna et al. that the Wu has their back and that they don’t need to “fall for that [bleeped]” (a.k.a. assholes like Chris Brown). Good advice. It’s kind of nice to hear a song made by a popular male artist that has a positive message for women, although it’s sad that I’m saying that. (Also: Is that keyboard hook in the background ghosting (no pun intended) Stevie Wonder’s “Creepin’” or is it something else?) [Nah Right]

    Now throw your hands in the air/
    and wave ‘em like you just don’t care/
    and if you think hitting women is wrong/
    because it’s like pretty self-evident that it’s wrong/
    let me hear you say, “oh yeah!”

    it reminds me more of “Livin’ For the City” but of course in a more downtempo context.

    i’m sorry that it took this to bring about a Ghostface return to form.

    Please note that while Ghost is too much man to leave a mark on you, his girl cousins may rock you.

    Please Ne-Yo, choose wisely.

    “Been four months since your period came down.”

    “You last man had you open like a papshmire.”

    Nice song and intent, but those lines are kind of…um…icky?
