I Love You [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - John Bush
There's little doubt that Amanda Blank is her own woman. A torrid rapper and inventive lyricist, she lit up the Baltimore club scene during 2005-2006, and her closing verse on Spank Rock's "Bump" provided a highlight to one of the best albums of 2006, YoYoYoYoYo. With so much talent on display already, the only concern leading up to the release of I Love You was whether her jump from featured artist to top billing could avoid the usual wide-distribution pitfalls. Blank proves mostly up to the challenge, floating a few great tracks and plenty of pounding productions, despite sounding familiar to fans of M.I.A. or Santigold. The similarities begin with "A Love Song," where it's...

Blank proves mostly up to the challenge, floating a few great tracks and plenty of pounding productions, despite sounding familiar to fans of M.I.A. or Santigold. The similarities begin with "A Love Song," where it's easy to see the roots of M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes," which is just as reflective and just as reliant on an '80s pop touchstone (here it's LL Cool J's "I Need Love" instead of "Straight to Hell" by the Clash) -- and, not coincidentally, just as produced by Diplo and Switch. Elsewhere, she spends a lot of time jump-starting a party, recalling Santigold's pop version of club music. The best tracks here feature her excellent rapping skills over productions from XXXChange, and the one where she sounds the most natural is the Spank Rock co-feature "Gimme What You Got.")

    Like A Ray of Explict Rap Sunshine!

    I'm not the bigest fan of hip hop and rap, but i do make exceptions(usually toward explict rap songs). But when i first heard a song from Amanda Blank, I Might Like You Better on perezhilton.com I fell in love with her music and now I have most of the songs from her album on my ipod ( also Extraball by Yusek ft Amanda Blank)! Her lyrics just get stuck in your head but not in a bad way, lke in a way that you might be bored then start to hear her music in your head and you start to dance in the street and eveyone is staring at you! I would recommend this CD to anyone who likes a lil rap now and then.

    Also because I can't find these CDs on this site i would also recommend CDs by Hyper Crush and Dirt Nasty
