Hungry D makes perhaps the worst record of 2012
Trawling the internet for new releases by Baltimore area musicians, we look for good records to champion, and try to ignore or forget the bad. But sometimes we find something so horrendously awful that it begs to be shared, such as Hungry D’s Getting’ High In The Drive-Thru, a stale and deeply unfunny parody of circa 2009 AutoTune rap. Hungry D appears to be the alias of Bel Air-based musician Guy Wallis of the “death folk” band One Watt Sun, who are actually not bad, the same of which cannot be said for this release.
An apparently white rock musician donning a dreadlock wig to rap songs like “Auto-Rap Is Gay, N—a” and “I Love Crack” is offensive enough in and of itself that Getting’ High In The Drive-Thru almost need not be evaluated on its musical merits. But it is worth noting that it also sounds fucking terrible. As satire, it’s outdated and toothless, and as broad comedy it’s far dumber than what it attempts to ridicule. And as a bonus, “Bacon Mafia (I Need Bacon)” piggybacks on another tiresome trend in internet humor. Fortunately, Hungry D claims to have only spent a half hour making these 8 tracks, which run a total of 12 minutes, so at least nobody wasted too much of their time on this sad, worthless, racist shitpile of a record.
