Eat your food with the knife in right hand, fork in left hand holding food. After a few bite-sized pieces of food are cut, place knife on edge of plate with blades facing in. Eat food by switching fork to right hand (unless you are left handed). A left hand, arm or elbow on the table is bad manners…

They tell us what is proper to do and then everything else is just wrong, but who are “they” and more importantly who gives a fuck what “they” even think, or thought?

According to all the “rules” and “systems” that we are assimilated into, a mashup such as this gem that Carter has put together for us, should not exist.  It can’t because it’s just not supposed to “be”— right?

Regardless, I remain the avid listener of music, and the disinterested observer of rules and laws; waiting for my chance to break every single one of them—a rebel, per say.

This Lorde Vs. Biggie — Can I Get Witcha Love Club (Carter Mashup) is rebellious in its very nature according to everything we seem to know in this first-world of ours here, yet it is very real, delicious and badass all at once.  Lorde‘s vocals, which we all tend to gravitate to, mesh so well with Biggie‘s burly tone and we simply adore it.

The contrasts between the two are beyond intriguing.  They keep us listening when we realize the huge contradictions within the content itself.  On the one hand, we have the sweetness and innocence of 16-year old Lorde‘s delectable vocals, tone, and lyrics, and on the other, we have the ruggedness and roughness of a Brooklyn crack-dealer searching for a one night stand in the ghetto to quench a sexual thirst.

The contrasting sounds help deliver the same message as it’s heavy hip-hop bass sits like an underworld god watching the angelic harmonies from above sing beautifully in sync.

Lorde explained the meaning behind the lyrics of ‘The Love Club’ in an impromtu interview with New Zealand radio station, George FM. “It’s basically about that group of friends that you meet and kind of fall into, and while your with them you can’t imagine anything else.”

“But you kind of get outside of it and realise that you have family and the friends you had when you were a kid, and maybe thats the best way to go.”

“Its ultimately about those friends you have so much fun with, its kind of scary.”

And while Lorde is in full regret of hanging out with those influential friends of which she was enchanted by, Biggie would have been the fearless leader friends, advocating for everything that’s: bad news, rebellious, and against the laws..

REMEMBER:  Always scoop food, using the proper utensil, away from you
