Meek Mill's cool new track "Oodles O'Noodles Babies" animates me to compare - mostly I avoid comparing, because working with comparisons only means creating a pseudo description. Since you often do not describe the comparison, you actually do not describe anything at all. For everyone who does not know the comparisons, there is no insight. In addition, comparisons destroy the continuous text, appear to be smart-ass, are often far-fetched and lead to unnecessary name dropping. But today I will allow myself to be seduced by luring comparisons: "Oodles O'Noodles Babies" reinvents the 90s, shifting the East Coast to the south - beat and sample are glamorous and shiny, reminiscent of UGK's "Int'l Players Anthem". Meek Mill's flow, on the other hand, is extremely contemporary, corresponds to modern rap approaches, reminiscent of Lil Waynes on "Mona Lisa" some months ago, rapping in an alarming, speedy, and over-the-top way. Later on Meek Mill reduces his speed, but unfortunately also loses some focus - a problem that occurs with many rap tracks, but to give a comparative example the otherwise excellent track "Kill Jill" by Big Boi could be mentioned. The structure of "Oodles O'Noodles Babies" is amazingly similar to that of the new Earl Sweatshirt track "The Mint", which I would rate as high as "Oodles O'Noodles Babies", but which is not discussed here, because I recently wrote something related to the first new Earl Sweatshirt single "Nowhere2go". On both tracks a hook is omitted, instead two verses are simply strung together, surrounded by an intro and an outro. Meek Mill's heartfelt and personal lyrics remind me, albeit being less eloquent, of Big K.R.I.T., speaking of poverty, depression, grieve about lost family members, and (physical) distance to the church. Conclusion: "Oodles O'Noodles Babies" is just as cool as Dienastymusic.
