50 Cent: Thomas in da club

August 4, 2006

Due to an outcry for wanting to see 50 cent’s “Thomas in da club” I have found a shortened version of it on the recently retooled YouTube. The musical language of this song is really not so far from that 60s anthem by Country Joe and the Fish, “I Feel Like I’m Fixin to Die.” The honky tonk piano and the handling of the secondary dominants (normally NEVER heard in rap) give the song a silent picture feeling, but the continuous rap tells us we ain’t in Kansas anymore. So, for those of you who say you hate rap, try this one on.
