Planting the seed

“We think about it as a team,” she said. “Watching so many bands for so long and standing in the audience, I was like, ‘I want to try that.’ After playing by yourself for so many years and seeing what level you can reach with so many musicians coming in, you pretty much have to.

Various artists - Crunk Hits Vol. 4


None December 6th, 2007

The most amazing thing about "Crunk Hits Vol. 4" is not that they managed to find more than a dozen "crunk hits" for a record, but that they have managed to do so on at least four occasions.

 

If you aren't familiar with the crunk genre, just think bouncy club music with less lyrics and a more repetitive talking style of vocal delivery. When Three 6 Mafia pioneered the style in the late Nineties, it stood in stark contrast to East and West Coast flavors of hip-hop, but lately the genre seems resigned to one-club-hit-wonder songs like "This Is Why I'm Hot" by rapper Mims, "Party Like a Rockstar" by Shop Boyz or "Pop, Lock & Drop It" by Huey.

 

Though it's doubtful many crunk songs or performers will celebrate long-lasting rap relevance, "Crunk Hits Vol. 4" does feature some artists like T.I., Fat Joe, Wyclef Jean and the aforementioned Three 6 Mafia, many of whom have doused their own successful style and lyrics with some crunk seasoning to capitalize on the style's recent popularity with young hip-hop fans.
