My Humps Sucks

To me, the song My Humps represents everything that's wrong with urban music. Let's start with the chorus. To refer to body parts on a woman as "lady lumps?" If that chorus had been sung by a man, he would have been accused of the lowest form of misogyny. Then there's the fact that she's bragging about how she can get things from men without giving anything in return, just by moving her "humps." Too many R&B songs by women are about that. Isn't that exactly what Kanye West immortalized in Gold Digger? But don't take my word for it. Slate agrees.

As a long time fan of 'lady lumps' I have to disagree. The song captures the true essence of moving humps.
Wierd story: I was listening it it on the radio and they censored the word "breast" from the song(What you gon' do wit all that breast?/All that breast inside that shirt?), but left in a@@. What was the point of that?

Dear Sir,
I love humps myself.

That is weird. It's like when the same station will play songs with a$$ a hundred times in it, but then will bleep out the word a$$ in "Feel Good Inc." Censorship is so arbitrary.
