Album: Don't Get It Twisted and The Players Club Soundtrack
There should be a special place for Pressha in the one-hit-wonder hall of fame. Although, in fairness, he technically had three hits. First, on the solo tip, he released "Put Ya Thang Down," and later, as a member of Southsyde B.O.I.Z. he did "Get Ready, Here It Comes (Choo Choo)."
You may be noticing a theme here, a delightful frisson of sexual innuendo, if you will. But Pressha took it to the next level when he created a song about that man who ladies call when her man isn't doing them right. Blending the name Makaveli (2Pac's appropriation of the Italian philosopher Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli, author of The Prince) with the term "splack" (first used by 2 Live Crew in their song "Put Her in the Buck" in the unforgettable line, "Flat on her back, hold her legs up high, make the pussy splack") was a stroke of genius. But what makes the song so unintentionally funny is Pressha's passionately heartfelt delivery of a song dedicated to all the Mr. Dikemdowns around the world and the women who love them. Stay classy. —Rob Kenner
