I’ve never claimed to be hip. But then again, I’ve never claimed to be elbow either. (I should stop claiming to be funny.)
So when I recently discovered that rapper T.I. had a song called Rubber Band Man, somewhere deep in my core idiot actually hoped and thought it might be a remake (or let’s say, re-imagining) of The Spinners’ The Rubberband Man.
Needless to say, I was sorely mistaken:
You see, one’s a song that I’ve been told I loved as a baby (that’s about a fat kid); the other is about how a drug dealer uses rubber bands on his wrist to hold money. How’s that for a remake/re-imagining?
