Donta Slusha- Check My Posture
Until I discovered "Check My Posture," I'd wasted a lot of time trying to determine if "Lookin Boy" by Hot Stylz and Yung Joc was the best or the worst song of 2008. The as-yet undiscovered Kansas City song rendered such thoughts irrelevant. Its willful goofiness is even more appealing than the absurd mayhem of the national hit. In fact, "Check My Posture" just became my official song of the summer. The self-proclaimed "gritter's choice" introduces the song in this video. "Check My Posture" and the more menacing "Get This Money" are available for download at Donta Slusha's MySpace.
This footage from the Kansas City Kansas Street Blues Festival is in desperate need of a ruthless editor, but I still welcome anything featuring Myra Taylor.
