Halle Berry: New Crunk Song, New Dance?




Along with a new fragrance, Halle's got a new dance and a crunk rap song too! Scratch the record! Before you run tell that, let me hip you to the game. Technically Halle is the inspiration for crunk rap artist, Hurricane Chris, and his song, "She's Fine". Last year his, "Hey Bay Bay" was in heavy rotation on the radio and in the clubs.

Now as much as I applaud Hurricane's creativity, here's where I have a major problem. The lyrics. Just like Soulja Boy's "Superman" song two years ago, kids are so distracted by the beat of "She's fine" they aren't really listening to the lyrics. I've done a little internet research and found them on various sites. They all say the same. Here's a few excerpts from lyricsmania.com:

She fine den a bitch, ass and her tits
Thick in tha hips every nig want her
Call her Halle Berry, Halle berry
Halle Berry, Halle berry
She walkin like a model
Hands on your knees
Scrub the ground
She ain't nothing but a tease
Halle Berry, Halle berry
Halle Berry, Halle berry

Lets get ratchet
Look at her prettier then Halle and thicker than Janet
She say she like all of my club bangers I be jamming
Told her to bust it open let me see whats really happnin
She the ship and im the captain
I'm tha captain

Make it drop and bring it back to the top
You no amateur
Girl you can give it to me it ain't nothing I can't handle
She just got out of the shower smellin like a scented candle
And I'm finna finna?
Sliding off tha mattress
No moving no acting baby this is real action
Beat it up so bad
You be scared to walk past me
I know your halle berry
Baby there's no acting
I beat it up so bad
You be scared to walk past me for real

Girl I guarantee I can make you go numb numb numb numb
I got enough bread to take me and you to London
And back to America and all over the country
She make me want to keep her close by
Like a side kick
She tha type of chick that ain't gone never look sloppy
I'm a beat it out the frame
Hurricane that's who I be
You must be Halle berry
I don't need to see your Id

What the...? Okay maybe I'm a tad "bourgie" about what I'm willing to dance to. If you're going to the club these days you must leave your internal progressive woman at home if you plan to dance. I'm willing to do that, but I have to draw the line somewhere. I'm fully grown, how you speak to me and about me is important. Telling me you want to beat, pound, hit, stab, or smack it til it gets sore will have you dating your favorite hand. I'm a person, not a piece of meat prepared for slaughter. Yet, it seems young women are oblivious to these references to violent acts involving their bodies and dance the night away. Blame it on the alcohol? I think not.

"You fine den a bitch." Am I wrong to be offended? What about Halle since she's the measure of beauty in this song? Think Hurricane would approach her with that line? Or, maybe I could take the "He's not talking to me. He's talking to those other girl's" approach? Enquiring minds want to know.

I wouldn't say the line is offensive is Halle is ok with it. I think I actually like the guy in the beginnings dance the best - even better than Halle's own. (although she was kind of put on the spot)

To explain my confusion, does she not know the words to the song ... uhmmm!

Wow that is funny. Holly has style, i like that. She is a very intelligent business woman and knows how to keep her face and name in the spotlight. Good for her.

Thanks for the comments. I don't believe Halle knew the song nor its lyrics either. Sad these young Hip Hoppers don't understand nor care about the power of their words. *shaking head*

You don't even understand what the hell he saying so shut up, when he say "Beat it up so bad, you'll be scared to walk past me" he's talking about having sex with he, not actually "beating" her.

Look here young'un. Are you as sick as your name claims? Of course, the song is about sex. That isn't the issue. My issue is how the song makes reference to women in general. Do your homework, literally.
