Regular Booth readers know that I’m a writer who enjoys inserting pop culture references into my intros, so Black Cobain’s new mixtape standout Will Farrell (incorrectly titled Semi Pro elsewhere in the blogosphere) was like an early Christmas gift. Making his DJBooth debut with Will Farrell, a title I assume is an indirect reference to comedy god Will Ferrell, Cobain, a VA emcee whose name I assume is an indirect reference to rock god Kurt Cobain, laces the record’s lightly harmonized Chris Wright beat with direct lyrical references to MC Hammer, Bobby Brown, Teddy Pendergrass and, of course, bisexual women, sentiments that his Board Administration partner Wale echoes on a typically breezy, oral sex-oriented guest verse. Interestingly, it’s only hook provider Tre (of UCB) who throws a shout out Will’s way, but then again, maybe mental images of the not-exactly-svelte Ferrell are probably the last thing you want when you’re trying to convince a fine lady to start undressing. Feeling inspired to go streaking in the quad? Check out Cobain’s new mixtape, Now, available, fittingly, right now.
