Endless Loop: Gimme Some More

bustarhymesHave you ever had one of those songs that gets stuck in your head for days…weeks…years? Sure you have. These are the songs that always make the cut. The songs on repeat. We all have them. I have a ton. Welcome back to Endless Loop.

“Gimme Some More” by Busta Rhymes

Combining a breathless and seemingly endless flowing stream of words, a jerky, bassy beat, a gorgeous looped sample of violins lifted from Bernard Herrmann’s score to Psycho, and a music video that’s equal parts absurd and terrifying, Busta Rhymes’ late-90’s hip-hop opus “Gimme Some More” pretty much encapsulates everything that a popular rap song could be at that particular moment in time. It was innovative. It was aggressive. It was weird. It made me want to be a rapper.
