The One Where Luke is a Nasty Woman

On this episode of Best Song Ever: the Dear LaBenne cousins kick things off with their first ever bonus track, DJ Khaled visits the Doom Tomb to give us a labelmate alert, Brian calls Luke a nasty woman several times, finally another episode of Thor Talk premiers with a special new surprise, and much much more!

Every week Ghettoblaster feature writers (and dear cousins!) Brian LaBenne and Luke LaBenne bring you fresh new songs with the hopes of introducing you to some that you may consider to be the best song ever.  Both Brian and Luke have no idea what songs the other has picked, so what you are hearing is their genuine reaction to listening to the songs together.  Also, if you enjoy this episode, head to ITunes to subscribe and rate our podcast with the highest rating available to you.

Back in May Open Mike Eagle & Paul White dropped their album and collaborative effort Hella Personal Film Festival (Mello Music Group). After releasing a few singles off the album, sharing “Smiling (Quirky Race Doc)” was inevitable. In trying times and situations, the imagery the song projects couldn’t have dropped at a more appropriate moment. With lines like “If not reparations give me free Black therapy / And tell people you’re scared of them, it makes them act scarily” you get an idea of where Open Mike Eagle is heading over those Paul White beats here.
