“Informer, You know say Daddy Snow me, I’m gonna blame, I’ll lick your bumbum now…”
This week we’re featuring the infamous ‘Informer’ – the 1992 single by Canadian reggae musician Snow. With questionable lyrics and some very suspect outfits, this whole mixed up package is a Bad Rap Mondays dream.
If this song sounds familiar it’s because this is the jam that gets played at pretty much every cheesy night club when everyone is far too faded to care. 2am guilty dancefloor pleasure it may be, but let’s not forget this song still sucks. Check these lyrics:
“Police-a them-a they come and-a they blow down me door
One him come crawl through through my window,
So they put me in the back of the car at the station
From that point on I reach my destination,
Now the destination reached was the East Detention
Where they whipped down my pants and looked up my bottom”
Woah, really?! “They whipped down my pants and looked up my bottom.”
‘Informer’ was released shortly before Snow was imprisoned for a year on an assault charge. Perhaps his lyrics came back to haunt him? However, upon his release, “Informer” became a huge hit and was actually included in VH1’s ‘100 Greatest Songs of the 90’s’. Wow.
