City Paper is not for tourists
When the Redskins cut Brandon Lloyd yesterday, they gave up on more than a failed receiver. They gave up on a failed rapper, too.
So as he heads off in search of another deep-pocketed sucker, it’s worth checking out his songcraft one last time.
The tracks now have a profundity that was lacking when Lloyd debuted ’em a couple years back. “I Get that Chedda,” for example. Lloyd got $10 million just for signing a reported five-year, $30 million deal with the Skins in 2006.
He had 25 catches in two years here. No touchdowns as a Redskin. None. But he gets to keep Dan Snyder’s, um, cheese.
And on “Superstar,” a guest vocalist tells Lloyd, “If you are what you say you are, a superstar, then have no fear.”
Again, no touchdowns as a Redskin. None.
And so he goes. Not surprisingly, Lloyd remains a free agent as a rapper, too.
