Don’t Be Scared of P.U.S.S.Y.
If nothing else, Judah knows how to indulge his fantasies, no matter how bizarre or outlandish. On 2010's The Amber Rose Instrumentals, the Northeast D.C. native imagined a brief rendezvous with Rose, only to be dumped for her then-boyfriend Kanye West. Following the moderate success of the summery "Sundresses and Sandals," Judah promoted the song with a gothic, True Blood-inspired music video.
Released today, Judah's new album, P.U.S.S.Y. (Please Understand She Saved You), continues the story of Amber, except the mood isn't quite so romantic. Instead, the album is mostly sullen and unorthodox, complete with random vocal samples (weed-smoking chicks, the guy from the All-State insurance commercials, a clip from Spike Lee's equally weird She Hate Me). All told, P.U.S.S.Y. won't knock you out upon first listen. But it grows more intriguing with each playback. Also, the cover art is pretty NSFW.
P.U.S.S.Y. is for sale on iTunes. You can find my review later this week online and in Washington City Paper's print edition. Here's the trailer for the album:
