Singled Out: Reggie Watt's F_ck Sh_t Stack

Welcome to Singled Out! where we ask artists to tell us the inside story of their latest single. Today funny man Reggie Watts tells us about "F_ck Sh_t Stack" from his brand new album "Why $#!+ So Crazy?". We now turn it over to Reggie for the story:

It's an evolved story, it's a song that literarily came to be through hours and hours of stage time. As I'm too lazy to sit down and actually write things it's written out of my frustration with mainstream hip hop, which is something that has been going on since the mid nineties. But the fascination with the obvious factors like sexism, objectification, and using monetary funds in ridiculous ways. And materialism, and just a reliance on things that have nothing to do with an artist's perspective or personality.

As far as there being such a thing as "F*ck Sh*t Stack"? It's more of an abstract concept, I don't think the term holds any weight.

This song grabs attention, and invites people into the house. On the current tour I am on with Conan, a lot of the audience members do not know the song yet, which I love. But there is always a handful of people who know it and when I start the beat I hear "woo". And when I'm doing my own shows there is a greater percentage of people who recognize the song audibly and most of the audience would know all of the lyrics to that song. I never thought it would get to that point, I always just think of it as a really silly song.

We'll be back with Reggie on Friday for the story behind the video but in the meantime, hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album, grab his tour dates (with Conan!) - right here!
