Mike Doughty (feat. Moon Hooch and Miss Eaves) - "Oh My God Yeah Fuck It" (video) (Premiere)

Those who know Mike Doughty as an acoustic singer/songwriter will no doubt do a double take when they hear his take on hip-hop with his tune "Oh My God Yeah Fuck It".

For his latest album, the pledge-funded Stellar Motel, singer/songwriter Mike Doughty decided to go in a direction far different than he’s ever done before. Though he’s cut his teeth on a brand of “acousticky singer/songwriter” material, Doughty has now taken to hip-hop, with the assistance of Stellar Motel producer Good Goose. To say the least, the collaboration resulted in some colorful tunes.
A particularly noteworthy one of these tunes is the Beastie Boys-indebted “Oh My God Yeah Fuck It”. As the song’s title more than implies, it’s a kinetic, effervescent number that shows Doughty’s playful take on hip-hop. For this tune, he’s joined by the sax-and-drums trio Moon Hooch and rapper Miss Eaves.

Here’s what Doughty had to say to PopMatters about the song: “‘Oh My God Yeah Fuck It’ is a chant I wrote for another artist, who didn’t like it, so I had to find another place for it. Moon Hooch are a pretty crazy party band, and I wanted to collaborate with them, so I just took it there. Miss Eaves is a great rapper that I met that I was just determined to get on a song—and this is what happened to be what my producer Good Goose were working on.”
