Everyday Another One Bites The Dust

Everyday I'm hustlin, and everyday a new white kid subscribes to "hip hop" and gets down with LFO. Ok, so as SFCritic, I'm regularly skimming through blogs, and well--I came upon Lykke Li's rendition of Rick Ross' "Hustlin." Granted, there are some cool folksy remixes of hip hop songs, such as the classic entitled by Phish/Dave Matthews Band (who #$#@ knows) of "Gin 'n Juice," but this isn't one of them. The problem, like Plaxico Burress, is the song is either a success or a shot in leg eventually ending your career. Not to say Lykke's performance is a season ending injury, but it definitely was foul.

The video has the apparent "I'm a white kid trying to be cool" problems:

1. She's singing Rick Ross.
2. She's hustling with a cashmere sweater, beads, and black tights.
3. Is this a house party? What's with the black light and red light? How many gangstas does it take to set up a black light?
4. Her dance steps are worse than Fat Joe's "Lean Back."
5. She learned call and response techniques at camp. Check out at 2:20 "More Cars!" "More hoes!" *Wait, let me just look down here and check the lyric box.

For shit's and giggles, take a look at the video below, and if you still want more, which you should because Lykke is talented, and isn't rapping in the other video.
