Nick Catchdubs, co-founder of Fool’s Gold Records, is arguably the greatest party-starter in all of New York City. He’s the kind of guy who knows that right at midnight when 2012 became 2013, the first song the crowd needed to hear was “Pop That” or can turn a barbershop into a bashment, even if he throws on “Coke Boys” before a full reggae set. For “Wut’s That,” a sampling from his upcoming debut album Smoke Machine (January 2015), Catchdubs unleashes rascally Bronx trio B.I.C. (Bitches Is Crazy) to rap acrobatically over a mobbing-primed beat. While the song is brimming with punchy one-liners (and is possibly the first time the word “cunt” has felt acceptable since Nicki Minaj’s “Roman’s Revenge”), my personal favorite is, “What’s that, ignoramus?/ Talking shit won’t get you famous/ Put your opinion in your anus/ And your name is, I don’t give a fuck.”
