Not only do I own Kevin Federline's CD, I paid full-price for it when it came out and I still listen to it on a semi-regular basis.
When I was a kid, I hated certain foods and my mom would trick me into eating them by mixing them into other things and not telling me what I was actually eating. In the same way, if I played a couple tracks off this album for you and didn't tell you who you were listening to, I'm pretty sure you'd nod your head to the beat in approval. But if I told you it was K-Fed from the get-go, you'd never give it a chance.
The sound of this album is decent. Really.
Lyrically though? Ol' K-Fed's got a little work to do. See for yourself:
"I married a superstar. Never come between us no matter who you are." (Lose Control)
I think we all know how that story ended.
"It's okay. I got something for ya. I'm handin' out ass kickin's like diplomas." (America's Most Hated)
That's just ridiculous.
"Never been to Denver but I rock them nuggets. One earring cost more than your budget." (Lose Control)
Here's my favorite...
"I got cake with no icing. K Federline. I snap like Mike Tyson." (Snap)
FYI, K-Fed. Any toughness expressed through a Mike Tyson reference is immediately negated by mentioning cake and icing in the same lyric.
There you have it, loyal FASTE readers. Starting off your weekend, consider yourselves Federlined.
