Hungry D makes perhaps the worst record of 2012

November 19, 2012
By

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 As satire, it’s outdated and toothless, and as broad comedy it’s far dumber than what it attempts to ridicule.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.

    Hungry D is just as real as Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and all the other cesspool “artist” that are out there today. The sad thing is the “artists” I just mentioned didn’t do their albums in thirty minutes. “Curly Fries and a 40​(​oz​.​) is a masterpiece!”

  • Macon, I’m bakin’ bacon

    better than 90% of the garbage that Baltimore churns out.

    And seriously, Curly Fries and a Forty is the catchiest motherfucker on the planet, son!

    Hungry D’s music speaks to me unlike another lyricists can. It’s as if Hungry D knows my likes and dislikes. I applaud his genius and you should too.

    Round 1: Guy Wallis Vs. “The Trendies” (Hipsters)

    My Cousin Guy Wallis made a Mock/Joke Album under the Monicker Hungry D (and the Boyz) last week. Which was featured in the Baltimore City Paper

    The album “Getting’ High In The Drive-Thru”
    was made (in 30 mins) to prove the point that the BS constantly promoted in the city paper, on the radio & the personal blog of the person who wrote the article (@alshipley), can be made w/ NO TALENT OR EFFORT.

    So this Hipster (that reviews Lil Wayne & other BS on his personal blog) that blogs for the City Paper reviewed a JOKE ALBUM and actually called it bad. The Irony of this is that It is just as “bad” maybe even Better than the Trendy Radio BS they constantly review and CLAIM is good in their Newspaper and Website. The fact that this article is among the most popular articles on their website makes this whole scenario even more “rich”.

    The only good part about this article is he gives a shout to Guy’s REAL band One Watt Sun, and says it’s good. Maybe as the mainstream crumbles and people just stop paying attention to them, instead of groveling to what is promoted through the Mainstream (controlled and worn out) channels, they could actually periodically do Write-Ups on GOOD baltimore bands like OWS, and become interested in “Trend-Setting” Good art.

    That would take REAL Artists and Aesthetes to work and contribute for them and not pretentious “Trendies” and “Hipsters”, maybe then, they wouldn’t be heralded as such BS so often, and more people would start actually paying attention to them or start to take them serious.

    The “trendies”? Please. That was a terrible and boring screed. Do better next time in your attempts to garner attention.
