So out of my typical music taste but K Camp’s “Piece of Love” is worth a second look.
K Camp starts the song with one of the most over spoken and relatable statements – “I know you tired of these n*ggas out here”. Humorous and a bit provoking, I couldn’t help but raise my hand and shout in agreement, “YES! THEY PLAY SO HARD IN THEIR BOOTY THO!” Okay so I can’t agree with that statement 100% of the time but damn, I feel for those girls who deal with dudes suffering from basic bitch syndrome. Basic or not, K Camp feels our pain and reminds us why we are appreciated.
Although the song alludes to a well-educated stripper getting money (or maybe just a regular chick who likes being on poles, who can even assume right?), the message rather than the literal meaning of the lyrics had me nodding in appreciation. I mean what girl wouldn’t want a guy saying he likes her for being smart? Having her own money? Striving to be the best? Making it out of the ghetto? He sees us and we see him too.
A definite feel-good song, the track is light, not overly analytical but has the right hint of consciousness that make girls hit up their boos with that “…you really ain’t shit without me” text. In better words, listen to him if you just want some slow “body grinding against mine” music. For those who appreciate deep lyrical construction or clever word play, K Camp probably won’t do ya good…unless booty lyricism is your thing.
