Buck 65 

Talkin’ Honky Blues

Published September 18, 2003.Buck 65Talkin’ Honky Blues(Warner)Buck is back, that salty rural philosopher. Rappin’s an act, right? But you gotta sing what you know, and Buck is a wry observer. He positions himself as a cranky old small-town guy, cruising highways in a beat-up car (“Wicked And Weird”). That car’s got more soul than all the new crap they’re shoving at us these days. He admits he’s a lot like his old man in “House- boat Neighbours,” full of “beans and big ideas...what’s more important than roses and blue jays?” If Springsteen went hip-hop, he’d be Buck. —Bob Elliscategories: Canadian artist,ECMA nominee (2006)
