Check yourself to respect yourself

Remember that fabulous Timbaland track I mentioned last week? Well, Beauty from the Beauty N The Beat blog has taken issue with some of Justin Timberlake's lyrics. It's such a good post, that I'm reprinting a massive chunk of it here, starting with those lyrics in full:
Could you speak up and stop the mumbling
I don't think you're getting clear
Sitting on the top it's hard to hear you from way up here
I saw you tryin to act cute on tv "just let me clear the air"
We missed you on the charts last week
Damn that's right, you wasn't there

If sexy never left, then why's everybody on my shi-it-it?
Don't hate on me just because you didn't come up with it
So if you see us in the club go on and walk the other way
Cuz our run will never be over, not at least until we say

Beauty says: "The first part is clearly about Janet who's not on the charts. The second part is about PRINCE who told the crowd at an Emmy Awards After Party August 27th 2006: 'For whoever is claiming that they are bringing sexy back, sexy never left!'. For the record, Prince just stated the obvious, Justin didn't bring ANYTHING back because 85% of his new album is nothing but Prince's 'LoveSexy' album with a Timbaland touch added to it. Justin is feeling himself WAY TOO MUCH. Dissing two legends in one verse? The very people whom HE TOOK HIS STYLE FROM? Hand that child a cup of shut the fuck up."

Too true.

Unfortunately, Beauty N The Beat has been out of action for a week, and a posting on the site yesterday suggests that the whole thing might be about to come to a grinding halt. I wouldn't be surprised if they've attracted the attention of the RIAA's assk-kicking, name-taking, granny-suing lawyers, given the amount of tracks they've leaked. Even so, it would be a shame to see it go as it's one of the highest quality and most intelligent R&B websites out there. Good luck to them all!
