Mike Boyd’s Number 1′s: Iggy Azalea – Fancy ft. Mike Boyd [Audio]

Enfield, NSOriginally published May 30, 2014 – It’s that time of the week, again. Mike Boyd just launched the latest installation in his Number 1’s series. Here’s how the series goes down: each week, Mike records a verse to a #1 single; regardless of whether he loves it or hates it. These releases lead up to the premiere of Mike’s forthcoming single debut, “1 Hit Wonder.”

This week Mike gets into it with a verse over top of Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX’s “Fancy.” Before I even listened to the verse, I knew what was coming. This verse is 100 per cent Mike Boyd-ness. It’s got that self-deprecating dead-pan zing that makes Mike one of the funniest rap-cats on-the-come up. Peep the verse below. And if you haven’t done so, yet, you should probably head over to iTunes to cop a download of Mike’s …Note the Sarcasm project.

Mike Boyd’s “Fancy” is HipHopCanada’s Song of the Day.


Mike Boyd’s Number 1′s: Iggy Azalea - Fancy ft. Mike Boyd [Audio] -

You know Iggy means serious business when she says she’s “fancy.” But Mike’s not even going to try and front on us like that. He knows he’s not fancy. Which is exactly why this is gold. Mike goes to the liquor store in his PJs. And eats with his hands. And doesn’t use manners. And refrains from shaving. Actually, cool fun fact I learned while listening to this verse: Mike first developed facial hair when he was eight years old. Yes. Eight years old (“Started getting facial hair at the age of eight/ Now my beard looking like 50 shades of grey.”).

What can I say? Mike’s so fancy. You already know. Peep the rest of the Number 1’s series via Mixcloud and keep it locked on next week’s verse.
