Why ask why?

Occasionally, I get asked why a straitlaced white girl who grew up in Montana likes to sing, dance and listen to hip-hop. Why? The lyrics, my friends! Driving home Saturday night, I heard the following couplet (pardon any errors in exact quoting):

I'mma brother - but not a Lehman
I'll be a bank - givin' out semen

C'MON! This is genius! Don't tell me that doesn't crack you up! If music should bring us joy, I have no shame about chuckling at creative hip hop lyrics. Plus, later in the song, he said, "Put this on your blog 'cause singing like this is my job." Request granted.
