The Download

Ryan Adams has either lost it or he’s just going through a Garth Brooks-as-Chris Gaines midlife crisis: He’s trying his hand at the rap game. To celebrate his newly revamped Internet home, he’s streaming his freshly minted track “Look Who Got a Website” (Stereogum.com was demented enough to preserve it as a downloadable mp3). The song provides a glimpse into Adams’ hip-hop psyche, and it ain’t pretty. Along with props to New York City, witches and ancient Sumera, the alt-country wiseass beefs with Hollywood’s elite: Where’s your dessert Kevin Bacon?/Making Waterworld 3? /They didn’t even make 2 yet/Yo, that was Costner, partna/Kevin Costner dot com. What the fuck? WTF indeed.
