Now that everyone's counting, it's time to get our Merrittometer up.
1. Just when you thought the D4L/snap craze couldn't get any more ridiculous, along comes the best monkey-dance song since the Ideals' "The Gorilla."
DOWNLOAD: R. Kelly & Fabo, "Gorilla" (mp3 link, via Shanghai Flu)
To paraphrase Pink Skull, R. Kelly is a fucking genius.
2. Still trying to decide which is better: Hova's verse or the Faderblog graphic. Winner: "3 Amigos" in a photo finish. (Distant runner up.) Of course you will download this, but we're all in agreement that the original is better, yes?
DOWNLOAD: Rick Ross, Jay-Z, and Young Jeezy, "Hustlin' (Remix)" (mp3)
3. The new Pharrell/Kanye song came to us all legal and shit. You can stream it from the links below, or download it from a blogger. For those keeping score, Clipse jawn "Mr. Me Too" is way hotter.
STREAM: Pharrell feat. Kanye West, "Number 1" (Windows Media) (Real Audio)
4. The new OutKast single mooches from the master, but it's a little too "The Whole World Pt. 2"-ish for us. Yawn.
DOWNLOAD: Outkast, "The Mighty O" (mp3, via sinternet)
