I’m An Alien Living In the Ghetto…

This song is called “I’m Excited” and it is by DJ Shadow and Afrikan Boy. The American DJ, Hip-Hop producer and songwriter is known as a prominent figure in the development of instrumental Hip-Hop. Olushola Ajose (aka Afrikan Boy) is a London grime/Afrobeat rapper originally from Nigeria and has worked with M.I.A. in addition to currently studying for a degree in Psychology and Sociology at Brunel University. I was attracted to this song not only because of the beat and Afrikan Boy’s flow, but also his lyrics, which have an futuristic touch to them:

“Ring a Ding Ding Ding, That’s the sound of my alien race”

“New day, new place, new world, new race”

“I’m an alien living in the ghetto

Different time in a brand new day

I’m an alien from the ghetto

So, what if God is an alien, scibby doo

Another UFO is another one of you

I’m still unidentified, definitely fly, object of attraction…”

“Elevate your mind”

“Aliens don’t pray, we shoot gamma rays”
