Guns Don't Kill People Rappers Do

By Goldie Lookin' Chain

Newport's finest supporters of leisurewear are back with their second single on Must Destroy. Based over a cool repetitive groove the collective take it in turns to extol the mantra that 'the gun is the tool, the mind is the weapon'. Whilst not in possession of the finest singing voices, the individual quirks to each one makes this enjoyable listening indeed. The melody is infectious and soon too you will find this as preset in your brain 'Guns don't kill people, rappers do - so do the police, woo woo woo!!'

The lyrics of course provide amusement: 'Vanilla Ice made my mother say f***, if I'd stuck with UB40 then I would have been in luck' as well as courting controversy: 'Biggie and Tupac RIP, even Jam Master Jay's in the cemetary'. Plus for anyone who has ever been to Wales will love: 'Shot to death outside Hyper-Value'.

Of course it's all childish but it is amusing and melodically it's as good as anything considered sensible. Backed with the Spirit In The Sky sampling 'Soap Bar' :'Burnt a new hole in my tracksuit today, smoking a soap bar without an ashtray, I ripped the f***er off and threw it in the bin'. I don't think the GLC are as stupid as they'd like us to believe.

So you went for "so do the police". So far on the lyric websites, one agrees with you. Another says "summon the police" which I originally thought it was, another went for "sound of the police" and finally one bizarrely went for "calling the police". Good song, I like it...

I thought it was "summon the police" but on further listening changed my min to "so do the police". If I ever bump into the clarts I'll get official confirmation.
