Here are the Hip-Hop devices that need to be retired:
- A chorus of dudes shouting "Oooooooohh!" or "Whooooooaaaaaah!" to the beat.
- Da club. Seriously, I think we've exhausted all of the club possibilities now that Usher wants to "make love in this club." (Really? Are you "making love" in a club? No. You're fucking.) There are other interesting locales, folks.
- Yourself and how awesome you are. We know, Kanye, you're the greatest. How about using some pronouns? It tends to make the song more relatable to us common folk. Listen to Rihanna, she's got this figured out.
- All of the cool shit you've acquired.
- Dolla dolla bill ya'll
Now I'm off to listen to Ice Cube's new album.
