Jay-Z, Santogold and Orangutans

If you're even slightly urban, you haven't made it until Jay-Z calls and asks for a hook-up. In the last 12 months alone, he's recorded with TI, L'il Wayne, Young Jeezy, Mariah Carey, MIA, Rihanna and, er, Coldplay…

The latest act to be anointed by the hova is Santogold - who crops up on a track called Brooklyn Go Hard. Produced by Kanye West, it features on the soundtrack to the forthcoming Biggie Smalls biopic, Notorious. Oh, and it kicks a$$.

The best bit is the chanted hook that spells out the name of Biggie and Jay-Z's hometown:
Come again?

The worst bit is a couplet that seems to be about shooting orangutans(?) - but nobody on the internet seems to be able to decipher it properly. These are the best two efforts:

Before you know it I'm in the game, bang fidith
Fit no orangutans piddeals ciddaps like orange's I'm dangerous

Music Lovers Group
Before u know it, I’m in the game. Bang! Fiddeth!
feel no orangutans peel-deel kid-aps
like a ranger is, i’m dangerous

You can try to work it out for yourself on vibe.com, which has the full track. Enjoy!
