Like a hip-hop version of Philip Roth's Alexander Portnoy, MC Spank Rock is a sex-obsessed geek. His choppy, nasal delivery (which sounds like Q-Tip with a cold) won't win him any rap battles, but the carnality is a perfect fit for the hyperactive, Red Bull-injected beats of producer XXXChange. On YoYoYoYoYo, the duo plucks subcultural sounds from across the map — think frenetic mash-up of Atlanta crunk, Miami bass, British grime, and Baltimore's distinctive superfast rap—to create experimental hip-hop that'll fry subwoofers and offend parents.
