DJ Max Key loses himself
Max Key – DJ, musician and son of the former Prime Minister – has announced he will hit back at rapper Eminem after the National Party was found guilty of breaching the copyright of rap colossus. Key says he will release a ‘‘diss track’’ against Eminem, given enough support.
It’s admirable to see a young person willing to do something truly useful, rather than just spraying hate all over social media.
I had never heard of a ‘‘diss track’’ before, so I looked it up on Urban Dictionary.
‘‘A rap song with a sole purpose of dissing another rapper,’’ the definition said, and: ‘‘Normally they are bad, but for 12 year olds, great!’’
OK, cool, at least we know where the bar is set. Unfortunately, Key appears to still be about 7000 Facebook likes short of his target, so we may never get to hear this piece of genius.
I am certainly no musician of the calibre of Max Key, but I do know words; so I’ve had a go at the lyrics. Max is welcome to use them, and I promise I won’t come after him for breach of copyright.
(Hum along to the tune of ‘‘Lose Yourself,’’ one of my favourite Eminem songs).
Lose the vote
When you thought that
You’d won it, you owned it
You’d never let it go
Bill you got two shots
And yet you kissed the Ninth Floor goodbye The opportunity was once in a lifetime (Yo!)
Max Key, the DJ formerly known as the son of the former Prime Minister.
