Leave it to Polow to be the first to interpolate The Jacksons without it sounding like a gimmick. For "Top of the World," he's all over "Can You Feel It?" (still one of the best videos) while Rich Boy shreds as usual. We're trying to think of an analogy for his Rich Boy's relentless snarl, but the only person who comes to mind is Kurt Cobain and that's not really right. Maybe Johnny Rotten? MOP? Whatever, we're just saying he never seems to let his foot of the pedal and might be semi-crazy. Also, Chili Chil is on the hook, and if you're like us and have time for this stuff, you might remember him as part of Surf Club, the Polow proteges who've produced a bunch of under-the-radar major jams and are, like, 10 years old.
