How Big Is Your World? Trina – “Long Heels, Red Bottoms”

one comment

This is a song about Louboutins that mentions them only once by name and so, you gotta at least kinda know something to realize Trina’s referencing a specific type of heel here. And that’s a welcome change from all those superficially hip-to-fashion raps lately. See: Jim Jones on “Believe In Magic” calling them “Lou Boutons” (pronounced like it’s the name of a third baseman from the 1970s or something). “Long Heels, Red Bottoms” is also as an antidote to Kreayshawn’s “Gucci Gucci,” in that it’s like a populist feminist “fuck you” to that million dollar idiot’s privileged (oh but she grew up in Oakland!) hipster screed against rocking nice things. And the beat from Mr. Collipark (also known as bass legend DJ Smurf) is just awesomely throwback, skittering and shuffling along with a big dumb catchy hook that reminds this Baltimorean of “What Chew Know About Down The Hill.” Trina and Collipark could’ve easily made a shiny, product-referencing attempt at a viral hit but instead, there’s well, this, which is so raw and simple that it makes “Pull Over” sound decadent.
