Dogg Pound veteran Kurupt's 2001 single "It's Over" is a bit of triumphant trash talk and self-mythologizing. But when it gets to the hook from Natina Reed of the R&B girl group Blaque (and Kurupt's fiance at the time), it devolves into a children's song. The lullaby melody of Natina's chorus is a horrible mismatch for Kurupt's hustler come-up raps and a weird look for his image overall. Kurupt was no stranger to sleek pop records at the time, but this one was just shameless.
