Story Of My Life

I can’t think of too many times when I would really want to hear someone’s life story—few experiences are more boring and awkward than smiling and nodding vacantly as someone you’ve just met tells you everything that’s ever happened to them. There are exceptions to this rule: if you’ve escaped from a circus, stolen a motorcycle, and traveled the world with your pet monkey, I’m all ears. Same thing goes if you’re Billy Blue, and you’ve condensed your autobiography into a four-minute song called…uh, Story Of My Life. This track, the latest single off the forthcoming LP of the same name (which has yet to receive a release date), finds Billy taking a slightly more serious tone than on his last feature, Fresh From Head 2 Toe. Backed by a synth horn section and occasional flanged drum fills (courtesy of Lamb), Billy and guest/label head Akon tell it as they see it on the topic of life in the ghetto. Now, if only I could make my life story this interesting—if spit my autobiography over a beat, I’d probably end up sounding like a drunk Glen Campbell unsuccessfully trying to shut off a Casio keyboard, cursing loudly all the while.  And I’m not sure whether that would be a good or a bad thing.
