Uhh, Uffie?

Everyone knows I’m in the M.I.A./Santogold fanclub. Some Cali rasta/skater kid recommended Uffie to me so I could stop ruining his life by keeping the other two on a strict diet of repeatrepeatrepeat. So moderation isn’t my specialty, sue me – viva la indulgence.

Body Bass [Curtis Vodka Mix] – Uffie

In Charge – Uffie

Uffie is some twenty year old, American-born brat that relocated to Paris in her mid-teen years who has a lot of nerve. She’s an interesting combination of Peaches’ nastiness, Lily Allen’s wit, M.I.A.’s whimsical sing-songy melodies,  and Santogold’s production style. Taking my affinity for brash, outspoken, strange women into account, I endorse her on principle…but I’m so conflicted. Her music [and I use that term loosely] is purposefully bad, tacky and charmingly/alarmingly vulgar.

The upbeat, disco-hop production is likeable and even kind of fun. It’s the lyrics that make you stop for a second. She’s real wild but extra casual about it. There’s something about her that makes me believe that she isn’t just trying to shock people by being a vulgar, enthusiastically sexual white girl who raps. She’s like The Blow‘s dirty, evil twin. I don’t even know what to say, I think she’s out of control.

I’m on the fence.


Read about Mickey Factz over on Stuntin On Prose and then ran into this track.

  1. preciate the shouts my gal. i’ll have to hear more of this uffie before i give her santogold/m.i.a. status. amanda blank is going hard on that whole raunchy white chick thing too; must be the trend du jour.

    Uffie is great
    It is the tacky, horribleness of her music that makes it awesome.

    GO UFF GO!
