With the perennial appeal of ‘Chipmunk’-style samples, you’d think the Chipmunks would be obvious beat material, but to my knowledge, nobody in the hip-hop game has taken the plunge… until now. Sure to bring fond memories flooding into the heads of ‘80s babies, Kendré‘s first feature, Mah Little Dance Song, off his newly-released Who’s the Nerd? mixtape, sees the Flint, Michigan native flipping the theme from the classic animated series into a backdrop for a Land of 1000 Dances-esque rundown of recent trends in getting down. If that sounds completely ridiculous, well, that’s because it is. Whether you find the cartoonish production catchy (like moi) or maddening, though, there’s no denying that the 19-year-old rapper/actor (he played Jabari on CW sitcom Girlfriends) can spit. Throughout his party-ready verses, Kendré busts out effortlessly speedy flows sure to have even the most stoic hip-hop heads nodding along appreciatively. Enough outta me, though – are you digging this display of off-the-wall creativity? If so, plenty more surprises await on Kendré‘s debut, You Look Like A Nerd, available now via the iTunes link above.
