Ms. New Booty

As we all know, Bubba Sparxxx’s “Ms. New Booty” is catching hell right now. Here’s some thoughts on the single (check the remix)—which is climbing up the Billboard pop charts and may well break the Top 10—plus the video, the website, and the whole damn controversy.

1. With “Ms. Fat Booty,” Mos created one of the warmest, sexiest, most honest songs about attraction of the last decade. The new Ms. Booty joint is crass…and catchy as hell. A sign of the times?

2. Bubba Sparxxx recently told VIBE.com: “I never ever stirred up the female world as much as I have with ‘Ms. New Booty.’ We got the Ms. New Booty website going on, and the women are going ape-shit about it. I just performed the song for a radio show in Memphis the other night, and it was just pandemonium.” As I told you all yesterday, some females seriously dig this sort of thing.

3. Why do most of the chicks in “The New Ms. Booty” have tiny asses? And how come the magic box just makes them do the stripper shake? Why doesn’t it make their booties fatter?

4. On a total tangent, I’d like to take a moment to thank hip-hop for banishing the starved-heroin-chic look and making it cool to have curves. Muchos gracias.

5. The Ying Yang twins need to dead that whisper shit. It’s very, very annoying. I read somewhere that the style is supposed to symbolize how dudes spit game at the club, which makes no sense at all since clubs are notoriously loud and hectic. And anyway, if some dude tried to holler at me like that—all up in my ear—he would get no play.

6. Apparently dudes are really feeling the whole sexy librarian thing.

7. The video is par for the course and I wouldn’t have much to say about it if the marketing campaign didn’t cross the line. The campaign features a web contest where chicks post flicks of their backsides and potentially get chosen to be Bubba’s next video chick. Here’s why it goes too far: the contest is being hyped on the radio during prime listening time for 12-17 year-olds. I don’t give a Eff what grown women chose to do with their digital cameras—or what any adult decides to do with other adults on the Internet, for that matter—but someone should really be looking out for the babies. Let the girls be girls, they have their whole lives to women. (I’m betting the folks out there who have daughters will agree.)

8. I came across this quote on Hip-Hop DX from Paul Porter of Industry Ears, the watchdog group that’s waging war on Sparxxx, Virgin Records, and mainstream radio: “I’m all for freedom of speech, but there’s such an imbalance out here. I’d hate to be eight years old listening to the radio, the only thing I’d be thinking about is fuckin’ and cutting a pound of blow up.” The man has a point.

9. If you’re mad at “Ms. New Booty,” it’s worth remembering that we’re all partially to blame—since Deliverance was a stirring, soul-searching work of art and no one bothered to buy it.

    Seriously? Deliverance was awesome and it was completely overlooked thanks to Curtis Jackson’s unfortunate domination of the radio during the summer & fall of 2003.

    Bubba’s doing what he’s got to do to sell records. I don’t blame him for it. As an aspiring MC myself I’ve learned that sometimes you just have to put an insipid party jam on an album just to get people to listen to the real talk you have in store for the masses.

    Ask Joe Budden about Ms New Booty. Bubba is on Chance #3 and Mr. Jump Off Himself is currently languishing in the Music Industry’s version of “Development Hell.”

    Get yours, Bubba. Deliverance was a classic, and based on that alone I’m gonna buy The Charm.

    God First, HipHop second.

    Yo, you should post your Ms. New Booty shot for your next entry Tara…Holla!

  • G Off

    Funny how a little controversy will keep your name out there. Bubba needed this badly and hopefully he can get some decent numbers out of it.

    The song is trash though, even for club songs. I hope he’s got some more of that soulful music that we love him for on the album.

    You are right about the small asspects of the video- they should have blown up when they got the new booty. Let the curves out!!!

  • daesonesb

    I dont qualify it as music.

    Sirens … people yelling shit … I can get the same effect by turning an episode of cops up and closing my eyes.

    The state of popular hip hop is that it sucks.

  • The Cipher

    aiight… first, please dont classify this song as hiphop, its straight club music, big difference, second, deliverance was a crazy album that was sadly overlooked which made me some what angry(damn 50 wasting radio minutes with his crap)… i agree with the whole whisper thing, it was good for one song but now its gotta stop, i should have to fuck around with my equalizer to understand wtf manz is saying(even though looking up the lyrics would be easier, you get my point) its making me sick… i got tired of this song though people played it out, and with this contest going on i fear its gunna keep going for a long as time, i hope his second single is somewhat “deliverance style” bubba cause i liked that aspect of him and i hope he didnt just chuck it

    I’l be your Ms. New Booty! I’ve been working at a Strip Club in Savannah, and this was my first song when I hit the stage. I made hella money that night. Keep the hits coming and I’ll keep shaking my AZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • OmahaPlaya

    My thoughts on the song is that it’s good for the clubs and stirp joints. I gotta admit that I like it since it’s getting girls to shake there asses more and is a perfect lead in for the summer season with the weather getting warmer now. Oh yeah also I agree the asses shoulda grew when the girls in the vid opened up the box. Peace!!!

  • Shortylightskin
