'Jersey Shore' rap: Preview the debut single from 'The Situation,' if you must

Posted on

Image Credit: Jason Merritt/Getty ImagesJersey Shore alpha-sleaze Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is about to drop his debut rap single this week. I know this because MTV News reported on it, and also, to my infinite regret, because TMZ has a 50-second preview clip available for streaming. Like the man himself, the song is called “The Situation,” but it’s not a true solo outing, as it features no less than three credited guests. Note: When shouty hype man Fatman Scoop is the least annoying part of your song, you’re in trouble.

Check out the preview clip after the jump (reluctant thanks to Vulture), if so inclined. You’ll hear a lot of air horns, some tinny synth presets, and the wackest lyrics this side of Kevin Federline. Sorry, that’s unfair to K-Fed. “Whoa, whoa, Situation,” the bro with the abs repeats a few times. Later, he announces plans to “grab some ass, drink some ‘gnac/I ain’t doing s— ’til I get my cash.” Let’s all do our best to make sure Situation does not get his cash, shall we?

I’ll say this for The Situation’s “The Situation”: It makes Enrique Iglesias’ Jersey Shore single sound like Pachelbel’s Canon. Or do you actually like this thing? Sound off in the comments below.
