Listen: Topdolla Sweizy, “The Real Washington Post”

Back in August, local rapper Topdolla Sweizy had our jaws on the floor of Constitution Hall when he opened for Plies... in his drawers.

He grabbed our attention again this morning with his new song, “The Real Washington Post.” Yeah, so the title might have had something to do with it, but the song is certainly worth a spin.

Over the backing track of Fabolous’ “Breathe,” he sounds off on the city’s crime rates, its losing sports teams, perennial frustrations in the go-go scene and more. It follows in the grand tradition of rap songs about Washington woe: D.C. Scorpio’s “Beam Me Up, Scotty,” Romeo Clark’s “Washington Def City” and Wale’s recent salvo “D.C. or Nothing.” Listen below.

Warning: Explicit language.
