WonkeyDude98 Analysis: My Humps + Black Eyed Peas

I really didn't want to do this. But after countless requests, I decided to use my final match saved for the Black Eyed Peas. They have landed on ALL of my worst lists to date except 2014 and 15 (even then Feelin Myself has a good chance of landing on the former and Awesome on the latter). After a review, a rant, and countless worst lists, it's finally time to wrap up my case on the Black Eyed Peas with a bang.

Today we will use their 2005 hit My Humps.

I wanna start with the beat. This is obviously the best part of the song, which is ironic considering the producer is one of my least favorite emcees of all time Lil Jon.

" (Will.i.am)Whatcha gonna do with all that junk/All that junk inside your trunk/(Fergie) I'ma get get get get you drunk/Get you love drunk off my hump/My hump my hump my hump my hump my hump/My hump my hump my hump my lovely little lumps/Check it out". AYEYAEYAEYAEYAEYAEYAE!!!! Why? Even in the first few bars there are many issues which also translate on a lot of the Black Eyed Peas' other work. First off, trying to rhyme drunk with hump (I feel more retarded every time I type that). Second, the fact that Fergie, in a desperate attempt to stay on rhythm, says "get" a million times (not really, but...). Third, "my hump" is repeated until the end of time. Finally, this is LMFAO level of disgusting.

"I drive these brothers crazy/I do it on the daily/They treat me really nicely/They buy me all these ice/Dolce and Gabbana/Fendi and Madonna/Caring they be sharin'/All their money got me wearing fly/Whether I ain't askin'/They say they love mah a** in/Seven jeans/True religion/I say no/But they keep givin'/So I keep on takin'/And no I ain't taken/We can keep on datin'". PRODUCT PLACEMENT! PRODUCT PLACEMENT! Then, we have the classic "we only have money to impress you" shtick. Also, seven jeans true religion? Incoherent nonsense.

"I keep on demonstratin''/My love/My love my love my love/You love my lady lumps/My hump my hump my hump/My humps they got you/(Taboo and Will.i.am) She's got me spending (Ooh)/(Fergie) Spendin' all your money on me/And spending time on me/(Taboo and Will.i,am) She's got me spending (Ooh)/Spendin' all your money on me/Uh on me on me". Too much repetitivity, ugh. Also, lousy rhyming techniques.

"(Will.i.am) Whatcha gonna do with all that junk/All that junk inside that trunk/ (Fergie)I'm a get get get get you drunk/Get you love drunk off my hump/(Will.i.am) Whatcha gonna do with all that a**/(All that a** inside your jeans/(Fergie) I'm a make make make make you scream/Make you scream make you scream/'Cause of my humps my hump my hump my hump/My hump my hump my hump/My lovely lady lumps/Check it out". Fergie is even worse now than before and Will.i.am is somehow even worse. Terrible rhymes, awful lyrics, and....MAKE YA SCREAM MAKE YA SCREAM.

Will.i.am's verse: "I met a girl down at the disco/She said hey hey hey ya lets go/I can be ya baby, you could be my honey/Let's spend time not money//And mix your milk with my coco puff/Milky milky coco/Mix your milk with my coco puff/Milky milky/Riiiiiiiiiight". Nonsense. Also, mixing milk with coco puff? Ummmmm....idk..

"They say I'm really sexy/The boys they wanna sex me/They always standin' next to me/Always dancin' next to me/Tryin' a feel my hump hump/Lookin' at my lump lump/You can look but you can't touch it/If you touch it/I'm a start some drama/You don't want no drama/No no drama no no no no drama/So don't pull on my hand boy/You ain't my man boy/I'm just tryin' a dance boy/And move my hump". The first four bars are the best part. No joke. All the rest is perverted garbage that rhymes with itself, doesn't rhyme, or doesn't connect rhythmically at all.

The final minute is repeats of earlier.

This is the epitome of what's bad about the Black Eyed Peas. Their lyrics are asinine, they are terrible MCs as well as singers, and emotionally they can't go anywhere. Well there's Meet Me Halfway and Where Is The Love, but....yeah.

Like I said, I've worn out on will.i.am (now I've broken two of my beatdolls), so this was not that great in terms of quality. I'll just give my verdict: a -2/5. This is WonkeyDude98, signing out.

Great review. Perfectly describes the song. - Martinglez

Thank VertitelCabal for the request. I worried that its low quality by my standards would hamper its reading value. - WonkeyDude98

I really hoped the lyrics of this thing was changed. It would have been A LOT BETTER. I actually like the beat, I'll give it that. - visitor

I did too. - WonkeyDude98
