This is several months old, but because I doubt any Bloglin readers muck around in the septic trenches that comprise the Rush Limbaugh website, and because I highly doubt that any of you allow Angry White Dudes (AWDs) to invade your thoughts through your earbuds, you probably didn’t hear about it. I don’t even know how I wound up there, honestly. Some arcane incantation of keywords that activated the dark servers over at Google, probably. Anyways, for real, though:
Rush Limbaugh seems to think he invented chopped & screwed.
No really, he says that at the bottom of one of the transcripts discussing DJ Screw, Robitussin, Houston, “clubbers”, and pretty much every other ill-informed word that an old-dad buzzword bingo player like that could possibly say. Even more cringe-inducing is that he keeps calling it “chop & screw”.
Apparently, the whole conversation started when Limbaugh got incredibly butthurt by Beyoncé‘s “Bow Down” single. You know, the one where she screws her voice down? Yeah, Limbaugh read some article referring to chopped and screwed in regard to “Bow Down”, admitted he had no idea what it was, and then proceeded to take up a good portion of his show the next day relating DJ Screw’s music to how the Obamas and the Carters are gods among mortals. Then he went on some tirade about Barack Obama’s iPod being full of chopped and screwed music, and then potentially alienating young kids and voters if he ever “dissed” DJ Screw.
Just as confused as all of you. There are actually two transcripts where Limbaugh comes off as a massively out-of-touch old dude, tenuously slandering anything capable of being slandered (because he is). #LibelKrew2k13
If any of you are insane enough to fork over $7 for a 30 day membership, you can download the audio transcripts of the show from the links at the top of each article, which you can find here and here. It may be worth the cash, though. You’d have endless sample material to work with. Just think about it.
