Ride Wit Me: Dirty South Style
Simply enough, “Archie Eversole” is not the man pictured on the cover of his album. Any rapper who name checks Bill Clinton, Michael Jackson, Michael Jordan, Oprah Winfrey, Saddam Hussein, and Bill Cosby within one minute of each other does not write his own rhymes; he has Carson Daly write them.
There is little to review here. It’s not even culturally significant, the one “hit-single” is completely obscure, and I’m not even going to bother reprinting the name of it here. I love ‘Nsync and Puff Daddy, but Ride Wit Me: Dirty South Style is seriously MANUFACTURED. Carson’s new album heavily differs from other “Dirty South” rap in that it has determinedly crappy beats and the most mundane lyricism this side of Lionel Richie.
It’s just awful. Archie Eversole is the Hindenburg of rap music.
