Blood Diamonds, Grimes, Kreayshawn and Tragik Make Fools of Themselves in New Group L$D
For the most part, Blood Diamonds, Grimes, Kreayshawn and Tragik are each decent artists as separate entities (with the exception, of course, being Kreayshawn). For whatever reason, they've teamed up to form a group called L$D (short for Lesbian Satanic Druglords... obviously), and it's definitely even stranger than could be expected.
We love when artists get weird, but L$D has taken things a little too far. Seriously, what is this shit?
We'll elaborate on our feelings of confusion and WTF-ness after the jump...
According to Consequence of Sound, L$D's first track, "Don't Smoke My Blunt Bitch" was "recorded in 10 minutes, with its accompanying music video completed in under an hour." Nobody is surprised by that information once they've seen the video, to say the least.
With lyrics like "blah blah blah/I'm the man," it's natural to feel sad both for the group's lack of creativity and for their decision to actually release such crap for public consumption. I won't bother getting into the contradiction of the lyrics "I don't give a fuck about you smoking my blunt" with the title of the song. And did I hear something about a pap smear at 1:05? That phrase has no place in any song.
"Don't Smoke My Blunt Bitch" is one of those "well there goes three minutes of my life that I can never get back" kinds of videos. As for that awful shrill scream at 1:44, I wish I could unhear it forever. G-d help us all if people actually start paying to see that songs like "Don't Smoke My Blunt Bitch" live. The trippy effects are cool and the background vocal harmonies near the end are alright, but those are the few positive aspects of the musical mess.
