New Def Jam signee bONE uses his first DJBooth feature Home Gurl (Remix) to examine Obama’s health care reform bill, examining its potential implications for spiraling pharmaceutical costs. Sorry, I’m just messing with you. Actually, bONE spends most of Home Gurl rhyming about his c**k. The original Home Gurl had become a bit of a sensation thanks to an addictive beat by JB (see This Is Why I’m Hot, Pop Lock & Drop It, etc.) and some not even remotely family friendly verses from bONE, so it was only natural that some big names (pun intended) got recruited for the remix, starting with Ricky Ross, who delivers an average verse, Bun B, who kills it, and The-Dream, who drops one of the most disappointing performances of his career. This is definitely one of those love it or hate it tracks, so which one will it be Booth nation? bONE’s debut album is currently untitled and unscheduled, but I think we can expect much more entertainingly obscene hip-hop from the young Dirty South rapper soon.
