Another rare New Orleans bounce music classic track, N.O. Block Party (aka Hot Boy Hot Girl) by Partners N Crime (PNC from Pump Tha Party) featuring DJ Jubilee. The Mardi Gras Indian in the picture is significant because of the way this song is sung, it's based on the Mardi Gras classic Iko Iko. "Iko Iko" is a New Orleans song that tells of a parade collision between two "tribes" of Mardi Gras Indians. The lyrics are derived from Indian chants and popular catchphrases. The song, under the original title "Jock-A-Mo", was written in 1954 by James "Sugar Boy" Crawford in New Orleans, but has spread so widely that many people take it to be a much older folk song. The story tells of a "spy dog" or lookout for one band of Indians encountering the "flag boy" or guidon carrier for another band. He threatens to set the flag on fire.
Here are the lyrics (I removed some sections)
My Hot Girl, and yo Hot Girl,
Were sittin' by the Bayou,
My Hot Girl, told yo Hot Girl,
I got a Hot Boy that is fire,
Talkin' bout a Hot Boy [Hot Girl]
Hot Boy [Hot Girl]
Every where we go [Say what?]
Upper Label Take Fo, and now you know how it go,
Representin' Down-South, Fa'sho, [Break it down]
If you from the Seventeen, won't 'cha make noise?
I say them Gert-Town Villains got some Hot Boys,
If you from the Tenth Ward, won't 'cha make noise?
I say them Saint Thomas Villains got some Hot Boys,
If you from the Fourth Ward, won't 'cha make noise?
I say them Iberville Villains, got some Hot Boys,
If you from the Third Ward, won't 'cha make noise?
I say them Calliope Villains, got some Hot Boys,
Now if you from the Ninth Ward, won't 'cha make noise?
I say them Desire Villains, got some Hot Boys,
If you from the Seventh Ward, won't 'cha make noise?
I say them St. Bernard Villains, got some Hot Boys,
Now if you from the Fifteen, won't 'cha make noise?
I say them Fischer Villains, got some Hot Boys,
And if you from the Sixth Ward, won't 'cha make noise?
I say them Lafitte Villains, got some Hot Boys,
Hold up 'Cise stop that track,
Put them two Trigger Mans on,
So we can get done with it and be out, [All Right!]
Come with me! Saint Mary! Through the Josephine,
V.L. to that Drive, you wanna ride or die?
S.T.P. Five plus Five,
Every other D.J. I go,
I got a girl from the Drive Way go,
I say it really doesn't matter where I go,
I say people lovin' South Coast,
Gert Town, Pigeon Town, Holly Grove,
From the Mac to the Melph to the Lio,
St. Bernard, Desire, Fa sho,
Them they lovin' South Coast,
Every other city we go,
Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Shreveport,
Houston Texas, ATL, Gulf Coast
Them people lovin' South Coast,
Kick out, Jubilee, Jubilee, kick out P-N-C,
She's Giving Me Love
When I was young my Mother watched me as I played
And every night she got down on her knees and to the Lord she prayed
For her son who will one day be up in this World
And that he grows old enough, strong enough to watch her baby Girl
Back in those days, we all done some bad
But my Mother grabbed me by my shirt and smacked me on my back
That's one thing I can say and even the man up above
Even though my Mother spanked me she has always shown me love
She's Giving Me Love
