Young Buck - Ghetto Superstar

Posted 8 years ago
Tags: Young Buck
Producer:
Soundtrakk
Album:
Unreleased Freestyle

Before the clamoring starts that “Young Buck’s new single Ghetto Superstar is the sh*t,” please understand this is not his song.  Using production work from the Soundtrakk-produced Lupe Fiasco single, Superstar, Buck puts his own spin on what it means to be a –ghetto– superstar.  While the song title suggests a carbon copy cut of an atypical ode to the ghetto hustle, G-Unit’s Teneessee spokesman gets lyrical like Lupe and opens up about his upbringing and family life.  Though Buck can’t get the credit for originality, that belongs to the Chicagoan, he should be respected for letting down his guard and becoming a hard MC with a rarely seen softer side.
