Why In The Hell Is Eminem On Skylar Grey’s Immensely Tragic “C’mon Let Me Ride”? (Listen)

Posted by Danielle Harling on 11/27/12 | Filed under Eminem, Skylar Grey
In the words of the late Amy Winehouse, "What kind of f**kery is this?" I knew from the cover art alone that Skylar Grey's "C'mon Let Me Ride" was going to be a little suspect and the word "suspect" doesn't even begin to describe this monstrosity. I understand that "C'mon Let Me Ride" is a pop song, but that's no reason for it to sound this bad.

What's even worse is not only does the song sound bad, but the content is on the wack side as well. Take for instance the introductory, "If you got a sweet tooth, you can taste my watermelons" or the equally questionable "If you get a bee sting, I can suck out all the poison." Uhh, no thanks.

While Eminem's verse on "C'mon Let Me Ride" is on the clever side and easily the song's only highpoint, it's too little too late. By the time his verse rolls around I already want to punch 18 and a half kittens and not in a "that Andre 3000 verse was so dope" kind of way either.
