Music Geek Track Of The Week: Daft Punk featuring Jay-Z’s “Computerized”
By Becca Gleason on March 14, 2014
Rappers rap about a lot of things: boats, hos, shoes, money, etc. Jay-Z decided to get a little nerdy with our favorite super-human-robots, Daft Punk, and rap about… you guessed it, TECHNOLOGY!
Though his tech knowledge was a wee-bit outdated, his lyrics include, “Start mackin’ on my black berry / she got jealous I was tappin’ on my Blackberry” also, “I guess it got faster but colder / We iChat, that’s how she comes over / That’s better than not seeing her.” It’s almost cute. He raps about phones like I imagine my dad would.
Regardless, the track is futuristic, electronic, funky and everything we love about Daft Punk. Listen!
