The International Players Anthem (feat. Outkast)
You know, a lot of critics and people who generally hate rap knock it for the kind of lifestyle it promotes. To a point I agree, the gangsta lifestyle is a subject that is often over-done, but it's a lifestyle nonetheless and though you may not understand it that doesn't give you ground to automatically discredit it. When an artist does the subject of pimping right then it can be extremely effective. Take Underground Kings' "International Players Anthem" with help from Outkast for example. I challenge anyone to put this song on their iPod and by the time the main beat kicks in not feel like a complete badass. This song charted very well when it came out, and there's no mystery as to why, it has a great beat and killer rhynes. It's a shame UGK's career was cut tragically short because in a sea of bland of rap, they were a shining beam of originality.
