Don’t be fooled, while this may not be food for the soul it is food for the ears. It serves its purpose. See, LVSkinny is real, from his non-rapping raps to his endless amount of strange verses based on sexual allusions. As “5 Minute Man” makes perfectly clear, he couldn’t care much less if his track is a critical or commercial success: his homies have been put on, his point has been made, and whatever happens next happens. As long as it happens to your girl!
“5 Minute Man” simply isn’t intended to be a lyrical track. This is the kind of music you bang in the whip when you want to have a good time with your friends.
This is the kind of music you’d blast on your iPhone when you’re at the gym (through your earbuds, as you don’t strangers hooking onto the explicit lyrics!), or you’re trying to just turn up and get ready to have some dirty fun. Once you understand the purpose of this track, you can finally appreciate it for what it is.
For all the funny one-liners and irreverent choruses, LVSkinny has a tongue-in cheek ball in his unabated onslaught about the “5 Minute Man” – 5 Minute Man I’m in your bitch and then I’m out. All I need is 5 minutes in and out her mouth.
It’s explicit; It’s freaky, funny, and ear-worming. LVSkinny has a deft stoner rapping style that switches up often enough within the song so that whenever you start to feel comfortable he brings something new.
“5 Minute Man” brings a taste of LVSkinny’s minimal abstract arrangements, which unfolds without unraveling itself; moving forward while also moving sideways. His passing interest in pushing slant rhymes to their outer limit is also one of his strengths.
It’s a reminder of everything LVSkinny is and everything he can be. His wrenchingly explicit verses smear over the sticky production and represent the latest evolution of a rapper who spins out ideas at a rapid pace. So light one up, and listen! It will take a whole lot less than 5 minutes!
