Review: DJ Jubilee – Get Ready, Ready EP

Review: DJ Jubilee – Get Ready, Ready EP

DJ Jubilee – Get Ready, Ready is an EP which Take Fo Records packaged as a single in 1997. Jubilee exploded onto the scene again with his EP Get Ready, Ready which sold over 60,000 units in the timespan of just less than a year. New Orleans bounce music can heard all over this EP. Perfect for dancing to and rocking your booty to.

The song Get Ready, Ready was the #1 club dance song in the United States back in 1997 which led this EP to become a hit record overnight. However the song did not become a hit nationally but was instead a regional hit in Louisiana despite debuting at #7 on Billboard Top 100. Still to this day, Get Ready, Ready is one of those songs that are still played at block parties and reunions across the Third Coast. Now this version is the radio version.

Get Ready, Ready uses a tempo of 99 BPM and uses the G Major key. The song is sped to a quicker rhythm in order to get people moving. Of course this made people rush to the dance floor. DJ Jubilee is the king of fast paced rhythms and upbeat songs.

Here is something for the public. You may not understand any of these lyrics if you are not from New Orleans or have ever partied in New Orleans. Hopefully you get a better understanding when you read the lyrics or listen to the song. So take a look.

Many think the lyrics in Verse 5 are referencing Magnolia Shorty – Monkey On Tha Dick or are paying homage and tribute to her. However that is not the case. Monkey on a Stick is a dance where you go up and down while gyrating.

[Verse 5]
Monkey on a stick, monkey on a stick
Monkey on a stick, monkey on a stick, yeah
Monkey on a stick, monkey on a stick, yeah
Monkey on a stick, monkey on a stick, yeah
Monkey on a stick
Now serve it, serve it

Now lyrics to Verse 3 are a reference to walking backwards and hovering like a dog. This dance requires very little leg gyrations.

[Verse 3]
Walk it like a dog
Walk it like a dog
Walk it like a dog
Aww, woof dog, woof dog
Walk it like a dog
Walk it like a dog
Walk it like a dog
Now take your dog for a walk

Lyrics to Verse 4 involve twerking. Dances in this song involve different moves.

[Verse 4]
A walk it like a serve it
Like a bounce it like twerk it like
A walk it like a serve it like a bounce, it like yeah
A walk it like a serve it
Like a bounce it like twerk it like
A walk it like a serve it
Like a bounce it like a serve

At the end of the song is where Jubilee calls for everyone to scream out their school’s name. School pride is a huge part of New Orleans culture which is considered to be very interregnal.

The song Where You Wanna Be heavily relies on the sample of Miss Jones – Where I Wanna Be Boy. Lyrics to the songs remain the same minus DJ Jubilee’s shout outs and chants. The instrumental of the original song is taken out and replaced with a twist of New Orleans bounce rap. Uptempo beats overlap both Jubilee’s vocals and Miss Jones also. The toms and snares are surprisingly thin. Jubilee adds his own lyrics throughout the song.

Here are the lyrics as what’s being said and sung. These lyrics are sung by Miss Jones from her song Where I Wanna Be Boy.

[Chorus:]
This is where I wanna be boy
This is where I wanna be boy
This is where I wanna be boy
This is where I wanna be boy

[Verse 1:]
I wanna take a moment to talk to you
‘Cause I’m about to turn away and give up on our thing
But you remain a sweet reminder of where I wanna be boy
In the arms of a man that’s strong and wants to give it to me
Boy I’m really trying but givin’ up’s so hard to do
Listening to my friends tell me I’m a fool for you
You’re the type of guy that dreams are made of
I wanna be what you want when you want and whenever you need me baby

This is where I wanna be boy
This is where I wanna be boy
This is where I wanna be boy
This is where I wanna be boy

[Chorus]

Where I want to be
I’m right here and you’re with me
Yeah, yeah, come on, come on

[Verse 2:]
I’m lookin for a reason and I already know the deal
Time and time again I try to ask myself
“Is my baby for real?”
Please won’t you level with me?
Because I want to let you know that
I finally made up my mind
And it’s where I wanna be
Right here by your side
Giving you the friend you need
You know I try
I do all I can just to make you happy
Won’t make no demands on your time
And once you get it, boy
I’m sure that you will find that this is

Do the 2 Sweet is a song which female rapper 2 Sweet would perform at concerts. Do the 2 Sweet is 2 Sweet’s take on the 2 step dance. Instead of do the 2 step you do the 2 Sweet. Doing the 2 Sweet is doing a 2 step dance to an upbeat tempo at a fast pace.

Get Ready, Ready (Live In Concert) is a live performance of Get Ready, Ready during a concert. The treble significantly lower than a regular song. Treble settings on this song are practically muffled. Vocals overlap the beats.

Now this version of the song is more explicit than the original. The lyrics have expletives in them. Many of the lyrics have been altered and are much different from the original version. Look over and analyze some of the examples below.

One example is the lyrics to Verse 2. The lyrics to Verse 2 are altered but are not all that different from the original version. The original version doesn’t use the word “shit”. What you have here are obscene lyrics that have profanity in them. Below are the lyrics from the Live In Concert version.

[Verse 2]
Talk that shit, now roll with it
Talk that shit, now roll with it
Talk that shit, now roll with it
Talk that shit now
Walk it like a dog

Here are the lyrics to Verse 2 from the original version.

[Verse 2]
Talk that stuff, now roll with it
Talk that stuff, now roll with it
Talk that stuff, now roll with it
Talk that stuff now
Walk it like a dog

The lyrics to Verse 5 are more sexually explicit and definitely more provocative in nature than the original version or the radio version. Below are the lyrics from the Live In Concert version.

[Verse 5]
Monkey on a dick, monkey on a dick
Monkey on a dick, monkey on a dick yeah
Monkey on a dick, monkey on a dick, yeah
Monkey on a dick, monkey on a dick, yeah
Monkey on a dick
Now serve it, serve it

Here are the lyrics to Verse 5 from the original version.

[Verse 5]
Monkey on a stick, monkey on a stick
Monkey on a stick, monkey on a stick, yeah
Monkey on a stick, monkey on a stick, yeah
Monkey on a stick, monkey on a stick, yeah
Monkey on a stick
Now serve it, serve it

I rate this EP 5/5*****!!
