down for a jack move

Mixed thanks to digitalbul1et for pointing me toward Revolution In The Head, where I found this absurdist take on "Straight Outta Compton."

I'm in favor of rendering the voice of the oppressed comical and white people using the word "ni*ga" under the shield of irony as much as anyone (hey, it's a post-racism world, right?), but it's the cheap exchange of melody for rhythm that really bothers me.

Bothers you, in a way that you don't like it? I can imagine that if you liked the original this take will be a shock at first. But then... for me it's just a beautiful joke, and I don't think Nina takes herself too seriously either. Nice title for this item :)

The conceit amused me for the first 5 seconds or so, then I didn't really need to hear any more.

Though it seems silly, I think it's her articulation of the "-er" that makes her usage of the "n-word" grate my ears a bit.
