Does Ludacris Miss The Mark On ‘Speak Into The Mic?’

By Maurice Bobb

As promised, Ludacris delivered the fourth installment for #IDGAFFridays Friday (May 10) titled, “Speak Into the Mic.” The Mike WiLL Made It-produced track, which will appear on his upcoming mixtape DTP Presents: I Don’t Give a F–k, draws inspiration from N.W.A. era odes to fellatio, serving up a studio microphone as euphemism for, well, his sexual “instrument.”

With lines like “Check one, two, speak into the microphone, tell that b-tch to speak into the microphone” and “Now work it, work it, ’cause practice make perfect,” Luda uses the most pedestrian forms of lyrical wordplay to request “lip service” from an unidentified female partner, even offering up a record deal to said female as if she’s somehow being rewarded for using the “mic” for its intended purpose.
