God-Des is the divine half of hip-hop/pop/soul act God-Des and She. The duo, which dwells in the Big Apple but hails from the Midwest, got its start in the late ’90s and has been a big deal since its cunnilingual track “Lick It” appeared on “The L Word” a few years back. God-Des and She makes a stop in Albuquerque on Saturday as part of Pride Fusion (Hyatt Regency Downtown). Below are some random songs that appeared on God-Des’ iPod.
1) Notorious B.I.G. • “One More Chance” • Ready to Die
“I think the stars must have aligned to put a Biggie song first! He is one of my favorite rappers and ‘One More Chance’ is the ultimate party jam. I wish Biggie were still alive so we could do a duet!”
2) The Rolling Stones • “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” • Forty Licks
“I love The Rolling Stones! I wish I could play a hollow body guitar like that. And I totally respect them for being able to play music for so many damn years. And Mick Jagger has a cute little butt!”
3) John Mayer • “Say” • single
“I totally did not put this on my iPod. Super embarrassed!”
4) Atmosphere • “Angelface (Multiples 5 vs Travel 4)” • You Can't Imagine How Much Fun We're Having
“Love representing for the Midwest. He is the second-best white rapper ... beside me! LOL.”
5) Soul for Real • “Candy Rain” • Soul for Real
“Holy shit, this is my JAM!!! I can do the best ’80s dance moves and claps to this song. Every time it comes on I get super excited, like a kid in a candy store, and feel like I am in middle school again daydreaming about my crush.”
