Michie Mee feat. Esthero: "Don't wanta be your slave" (2000)
Date: August 27, 2011 06:58

I just found this one: a person named Michie Dee (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michie_Mee) doing a song named "Don't wanna be your slave":





In my opinion this is mainly a rip-off of the Rolling Stones's "Slave" - not only taking its title but also the main riff, only decorated with some crap text and some half-naked black asses. (Caution - the "song" only starts only at 0:25 - listen to the back beat... I bet they never heard of Charlie Watts)

Now, is this a cover of "Slave" or just plain sh!t?

Well, according to this:
[www.allmusic.com]
Jagger and Richards got the composer-credits.

So I don't know why you call this a 'rip-off'. Love it or hate it, it's just a Stones-cover.

Considering the number of songs the Stones covered in their career by this logic they are 'rip-off artists'?

Not my cup of tea. But it's kinda neat to hear "Slave" repurposed like this. It shows some respect for the Stones and that their (relatively obscure) music is relevant to hip hop artists.

This absolutely blows away the Stones original version.



Just kidding.

That is 4 min 34 seconds of my life I'm never gonna get back.
