The Liner/Sleeve Notes:
I like rap music, not a lot of the new rap music, but I do like rap, mainly old school 90’s stuff. This rap, however, goes past that, way past that, back all the way to 1981. This is Wayne Garland & Charlie Chocks hit, “Check it Out” – with the instrumental version on the B-Side. Respectively.
Anyways, the lyrics are basically along the lines of “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” – for example, “You just found out you lost your job, check it out, check it out” “The bartender gives you a lousy drink, check it out, check it!” – in all honesty, it’s better than most rap songs musicians today put out. Most rap music is all about money, women, drugs, and hate. Wayne’s rap is just about being happy, and isn’t that what life is about? “We gettin’ welfare! Gettin’ food stamps! These are the things that make you shout, everyone say check it out!” Seriously. Wayne & Charlie are deep.
The B-Side is an instrumental of the A-Side, and well. I suck at reviewing instrumentals and spoken word records. So, I’m gonna end it here.
Wayne still raps for kids, and he’s available for hire.
