“It's not really rap”
Morrissey goes off during the song on a free-associative spiel about "babies with rabies," before asking, "Victim, or life's adventurer?" Producer Joe Chiccarelli told Radio.com that he jokingly called it," "the rap section," much to the singer's chagrin.
"Moz looked at me and said, 'It's not really rap,'" he added. "He's very quick-witted, he's very colorful. But I thought of the 'babies/rabies' thing as a poem. If you come from the punk rock school, it's about pushing the limits and seeing what you can get away with. He's a master of words, he's a novelist more than anything."
Whether you want to call it rap or not, Morrissey had never used his voice in this way before. Or rarely if you want to consider "Sorrow...". But we're gonna get more rap from him if it is true that he has recorded songs with AP&P Rocky anyway.
I like the "Victim, or life's adventurer" part, but overall it is a complicated piece of music, a bit the opposite of many Ringleader compositions (to quote TCB here). Does that make it a better song? Not sure. If he wanted to showcase Gustavo's talent as a composer, he should have gone for "One of our own".
