CHERRY CRUSHA DINNER WITH LEON PLAYlIST. SHOW NUMBER ONE: IM SO GANGSTA.
READ FROM SCRIPT. Hello this is cherry crusha and this show is called DINNER WITH LEON, where we take a look at gangsta culture using musical psychology. The first song we are going to here is from Alt J, a song written about the movie The Professional. The song is called This is from Matilda. Leon was an ancient kind of gangster called a sicario or hitman. With the rise of drug cartels this word has entered the Emerican language.
THIS IS FROM MATILDA
Next we hear a song from Post Malone about the basketball player Alan Iverson. Many people think Posty's career was totally engineered by the industry to bring white people into the gangsta fan base.
The next song could be about Matilda too but its' not, it's simply a song about drug deals in the barrio by Fetty Wap which like Mo Bamba features a physical injury but this time to Fetty's eye.
Next we hear a song from Shek Wes about Mo Bamba, another basketball player in the NBA.
Now we have a song about another kind of violence, school shootings. Oddly this song was banned in some places
PUMPED UP KICKS
I SHOT THE SHERRIFF
And the classic reggae tune about someone who shot a cop.
BRIGANTE SE MORE
Now we hear from the Sicilian culture with a song by Eduardo Bennato (is that who it is)
UNA STORIA SBAGLIATA
And a song dedicated to the film director Paolo Pasolini.
And finally we pray for mercy on everything. This concludes Dinner with Leon: IM SO GANGSTA.
