I CANNOT WAIT!

The Delivery Man is tinged with Mississippi blues? YOW!

When Elvis puts out a hip-hop album, he will have officially DONE IT ALL!

YIPPEEEE!

EC could pull off hip hop if he did more songs in the vein of "The Bridge I Burned', utilizing the beats, etc. but if he actually raps, then Goodbye Cruel World will be looking like a classic!

The entirety of WIWC was more or less hip hop! And what about It's Time from ATUB?!!

EC has done more than enough hip hop.

"Pills And Soap" is definitly hip hop inspired and more-or-less rapped by some chap named Elvis Costello.

It is a rap inspired delivery - correct.

I wouldn't call "Pills and Soap" hip hop, it's certainly EC's answer to hip hop at the time, but I think "The Bridge I Burned" is absolutely a hip hop song in the only way EC could pull hip hop off correctly.
