I Love Charlotte by DJ Complete

Posted on 16 Apr 2009 by Justin Ruckman

watch this video on YouTube

I first heard this song over on Meck’s blog, KUWTB. Now it looks like DJ Complete, a Charlotte native, has posted a music video to go with it.

The song has gotten play on 96.1 The Beat, Kiss 95.1 & Power 98, naturally. You can download the MP3 at Complete’s website or his MySpace.

I’ve seen a mixed response: a lot of people say they love it, others say it’s everything they hate about our city. Either way props to DJ Complete for putting the time/energy into it — he’s right, nobody’s representing Charlotte quite like this.

    I just think it’s really embarrassing for the average intelligent person to watch this and think that this supposed to represent something.……like what? What is unique about this ?? the perspective? Or even worse.…how it’s being delivered???

    we need something more than this.…and it’s out there..and when we find it ..it’s going to have something really important to say!!!!

    go seek.….go think!!!

      Grow up. your opinion doesn’t matter. You enjoy drama and that is def. not needed. Go out and get some drama in your life– dont sit around a computer and antagonize people . Thanks sport!

    I think it is funny. He took the popular Asher Roth song “I Love College” and remixed it for laughs.I don’t really think he was trying to be serious. Anybody else remember that rap about the Panthers from a while back? I think it was the year they went to the Superbowl.

    no offense dude, but get over yourself. you can be intelligent and still amused by this song. it’s not meant to be serious, it doesn’t represent anything except for one person’s feelings and experiences in charlotte — which are amusing and touch on a lot of truth. it’s meant to be silly. so what if it’s a little bit stupid and ridiculous. let’s not take ourselves too seriously. creating identity is about recognizing all the aspects, even our supposed faults.

    go ahead and write a lyrically deep piece about charlotte and art and culture and green initiatives and other very important things. go seek and think, although it will probably be easier if you take your head out of your ass first.

    having taken my head out of my ass.….….as requested, which actually could be construed as offensive BTW, clearly my perception of this is slightly different from yours, and that’s good thing, as long as you so correctly point out, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Humour is a great vehicle.….….….and the ability to be stupid and laugh at oneself it pretty much intrinsic to this.….it is funny and he did a great job.……guess I’m just waiting to be inspired in a different way…

    So what have you got besides an opinion? Come on let’s see it. What’s wrong with a little humor?

  6. Freespace 17 Apr 2009 at 5:19 PM

    i’m not sure which comment you’re responding to.….…the last one was in defense of humour??????

    I find it funny because it is almost self depreciating, though not as obvious as this Cleveland tourism mocumentary: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysmLA5TqbIY (Credit to Meck for finding it, please don’t yell at me for stealing it!)

    Also, I found the rap song about the Carolina Panthers circa 20032004: <a href=“http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jD-7U0Fls0″ target=“_blank”>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jD-7U0Fls0

    You may not like DJ Complete’s “I Love Charlotte”…it is, well, kind of lame…but I’m pretty sure you’ll be nodding to the Crossing County Lines EP. Created as a promo for County Lines Clothing and featuring local mc’s and tracks mixed by DJ Complete, the EP is a much better representation of what NC hip hop is all about.

    It’s okay — not as good as the Arlington Rap or Fairfax Rap (look those up on utube)
