I wouldn’t be all that surprised if rapper 9th Ward’s Tivo is filled with America’s Next Top Model episodes. He really has a thing for supermodels, and considering all the hardships he has gone through in the past few years, he probably deserves one. After a rough upbringing in New Orleans’s 9th Ward (hence the stage name), he was displaced by Hurricane Katrina and forced to start life anew in Atlanta. Thankfully for him, his career has taken off since then. His newest single, Super Model, is a bouncy, Dirty South track about walking like Tyra. While the laid back Drumma Boy beat may not be ideal for generating a spin-off dance, I’m pretty sure that’s what the two are going for. The song will appear on 9th Ward’s debut album, Times Change.
Note: The streaming of “Super Model” has temporarily been suspended.
