Freeload: Homebwoi Is Rap’s Nell Carter (Or Something Like That)

July 21, 2008


Previously known to us as the dude who showed up wobbly-voiced and sounding like vintage Cash Money along with B.G. on "Where Da At,", Georgia's Homebwoi is actually a practitioner of vintage Dipset, when they were dependably clever over unclearable and oftentimes corny samples. Maybe it's a little unfair to heap that kind of praise on him, but hearing Homebwoi rap about dating a girl who is the Erykah Badu to his Andre on the Chariots of Fire-sampling "Magnificent" and listening to him bemoan his lack of success on "Gimme a Break," which samples—what else— a snippet of the Gimme a Break theme song makes us wistful. Wistful enough to read the bio on Homebwoi's MySpace detailing his love of soul and funk. Maybe he should link up with Fabo to record the greatest rap album to never see the light of day, or maybe he should rap over Mr Belvedere. Streaks on the china… banjo…Leon Redbone… classic.
