Jack Kennedy, Joe Reynolds and The Michigan Marching Band.
JDK and Rey's Facebook,
"104,000+ are gonna lose their minds to this one in The Big House with Team 133. Feel us The University of Michigan Marching Band?! "
but, he can spit it out legit (that's the limit of my raptastic vernacular).
Take out "...it out legit."
Now I can speak to people under 25 again.
JDK's rapping is better than the singing and I'm not much of a rap fan. Joe has a good voice but the way it's used on this track doesn't quite get there. They get a good producer and they could potenially put out some really solid material. I hope they're successful. I also hope they get a chance to see the field this year under really good circumstances of course.
I'm old and I don't like it. I used to be `with it.' But then they changed what `it' was. Now what I'm `with' isn't `it' and what's `it' seems weird and scary to me. It'll happen to you.
I would like to get your reaction to a Skrillex song
Can this replace Pop Evil?
day job a little longer. Love, Mom
This darn rap junk is a sorry excuse for music. Why can't he stick to vaudeville?
It's nothing like Pop Evil; it's terrible in a completely different way. At least they use the marching band. If they drop themselves from the song, you've got the start of something good.
I respect them for taking a chance on something they love to do and working on it. To me, the first Jack Kennedy tune "Lost Love" with the beat from Triple O is the best.
At least they have the balls to pursue something they are interested in.
I'm old too but love music so I try to stay up on the latest. It is true though that it is not natural to like the new stuff. I had not heard that Skillrex tune. It's OK.
Maybe not; but adding members of the Michigan Marching Band to "Hundred Level" makes me think of Fleetwood Mac’s “Tusk” with the USC Marching Band.
Though I might be considered a member of the “get off my lawn” generation, functionally illiterate as far as raptastic vernacular is concerned and probably not a great judge of what makes certain music popular,* I have to applaud the Jack Kennedy-Joe Reynolds musical venture.
They’re passionate about their music, and even if they have to “go pro” in something other than football or music, they’re Michigan Men, fergodsakes, and that’s enough for them to get my appreciation.
* I’m also functionally illiterate when it comes to hip hop, country, heavy metal, big band, gospel, religious rock, opera, classical, most reggae, ska and many other genres (including whatever genre Skrillex qualifies for) besides rock and folk. But I’m typing this as I listen to my playlist of Grammy award winning songs from Henry Mancini’s “Peter Gunn Theme” through Tony Bennett and Amy Winehouse’s “Body and Soul”, and including, among 300 others, Kanye West’s “All of the Lights,” Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” and Foster The People’s “Pumped Up Kicks.” I’ll take JDK & Rey over Skrillex.
I'd even consider this for some Big House treatment with the Michigan Marching Band:
You durn kids with your hippin' and your hoppin' and the bippin' and the boppin'.
Jell-O Puddin' Pops...
I'm not into rap, but I really like this!!! Who wrote the music? I'm guessing that JDK and Rey wrote their own lyrics, but tell me if I'm wrong. The music video was great, very well done, and the scenes are just what we need here locally. Great job all around!!!
Keep it going guys!!
