Hit Me On My BlackBerry!

Turn on your Speakers and Crank Up the Volume! BlackBerry Addicts everywhere have a New Anthem! Listen below to the World Premiere of Hit Me on My BlackBerry...


(download HitMeOnMyBlackBerry.mp3)

I almost fell out of my chair when I received an email from T.U.N.D.E. last night telling me to check out the new song he whipped up for the BlackBerry community. Turns out he saw our The Comparison Continues... BlackBerry vs. iPhone post and said to himself, Screw the iPhone, BlackBerry is the Best, Kevin needs some ammo! and hammered out the lyrics and set it to the beats of the Fam-lay & Pharrel Beeper Song.

I'm loving the lyrics. HUGE CrackBerry thanks go out to T.U.N.D.E. on this one. He grew up in Virginia, is now living in London, England, is a Microsoft and Cisco certified engineer and raps for fun (there's a lesson here kids - you can read, excel and rap at the same time!).

Seriously, RIM should just take this song and turn it into a commercial for the BlackBerry Bold. But I'm guessing they won't, so it's up to us to do it! We need a montage! Time for another CrackBerry.com Contest! Details after the jump!

"Talking about the Bold and the Curve or the Pearl Grrl" haha..Love it!

i prefer "hit me on my blackberry" by ras kass, it sounds waaaaay better... i have had it as my ringtone for a while now look it up ill post a link soon

hey I didn't see your comment about Ras Kass, when i was reading the comments. But glad to hear that someone else knows that Blackberry has been the peoples choice for awhile.
Plus you're up on your Hip Hop..

yeah that song is old i suggest everone go look for it its by ras kass and its from the "revenge of the spit" album its called " hit me on my blackberry"

I am definitely seeing this song as a commercial spot, so I'll support the artist by bumpin it on my 8830.

cheers!

This needs to be a ringtone........and a commercial......and sent to the iphone blog where they'll cry like fanboy babies!! Waaaaaaa!

The tune says it all......Dieter's gonna throw a tantrum!

I love my crackberry.

Holla!

Anyone with basic audio sampling/editing software can do this...I recommend a quick DL of Audacity with the LAME plug-in [req'd to export to .mp3]

1.It's free 2. Moving forward, you can make your own...cheers ;)

Effing awesome...Visuals concepts will include but aren't limited to: shots of bottles of Cristal, scantly clad women, dollars bills raining from the ceiling as well as repeated shots of BB's receiving incomming calls/emails/PIN's from the aforementioned scantly clad females....Winner!?

I've studied that art of rap video production [watch BET]

Love the lyrics and my BB Bold :)

Reminds me of those HORRID boost mobile urban commercials.

I bet if they did use this as a commercial for the Bold, the "Professional" demographic would run away with arms in air.

Take a look at the Passionate/Polished ad they put out.

Its Classy.

This is NOT how they want to portray their product.

SWEEEEEET OMG *Drool* ugh i cant wait i need a new blackberry hard core lol WEWT cant wait GG rim you really outdid yourself!

That's the worst ghetto shit I have heard since Shaq rapping about Kobe. He needs to stick to being a computer geek.

that even though you posted YOUR trashy comment twice you didn't have the balls to put your name on it. You don't have to like it, but personally I am offended by your use of the word ghetto(and all the negative connotations it implies)to describe it--and no, you don't get a pass even if you happen to BE black.

That's the worst ghetto shit I have heard since Shaq rapping about Kobe. He needs to stick to being a computer geek.

And you know you loved when Shaq was with Fu-Schnickens!!!!!! dont lie.......

(SHAQ)
I'm the hooper, the hyper
Protected by Viper
When I rock the hoop yo, you'd better decipher
In other words you'd better make a funky decision (whoo)
'cause I'm a be a Shaq knife, and cut you with precision
Forget Tony Danza, I'm the boss
When it comes to money, I'm like Dick Butkas
Now who's the first pick? me, word is born and
Not a Christean Laettner, not Alonzo Mourning
That's okay, not being bragadocious
Supercalifragelistic, Shaq is alidocious
Peace, I gotta go, I ain't no joke
Now I slam it (what?) jam it (unh)
And make sure it's broke

Honestly, my standards on emceeing are much higher then this, however on creativety I could have not done better then this since I am not a rapper.

my verdict: @@@1/2 out of @@@@@.

In the spirit of BlackBerry; good job!

I like it, catchy! if anyone makes it into a ringtone can you please share with the rest of us? please and thank you!

Can I suggest that we have some sort of user voting for the #1 video? Maybe do 1 vote per user or something. Possibly for the top 3 or 5? I'm always looking for reasons to visit CB!

Not to seal any of the shine from T.U.D.E but, there was a "Blackurre" aka Blackberry song before this one. It came from a West Coast rapper by the name of Ras Kass. On his album Revenge of the spit. So, it seems that Blackberry is the rappers choice also. Now I'm all about supporting Blackberry in this Smart phone race. I'm currently leading the conversion of all non-Blackberry users in my office. And from the looks of it, it's not going to take long. The iphone is nice I guess. I already have an iPod. I don't need an iPhone. Nor a cell & iPod mixed together. All I need is the comfort of my Blackberry. Besides They don't even have songs about them. Duh!?!?!?

i love the blackberry just as much as anyone else.....but I had to stop the song 20 seconds in....my ears were beginning to hurt!!

1st off i have to say (as a long haired 80s rocker) that i have never really liked much rap...unless it was the ol school rap from the 70s.
to me, most rap these days is all about the same theme.
that being said, to hear a little tune about the blackberry got me to tune in. and i actually love it! mostly cuz of the stuff said in the song that only us bb lovers really know about. i can see this piece taking off and ushering in a whole new class of bb users. if this thing goes over big, maybe rim will realize that the "typical" bb user these days has shifted from the suit and tie business jetsetting world traveling 6 figure income 2 houses and 4 bmw's in the garage type person...to the more realistic normal everyday guy or girl who goes to school or works at a normal job and lives a regular type life. not every bb user sports a suit and $400 briefcase to work.
SO...kudos to you and i hope this helps rim realize that they need to make more programs for the normal everyday type person...and NO we dont need 125,687 more IM programs!! theres already 4 billion too many.
so hit it up and jam out to the tune!! im all for it becoming a ringtone too!

Hip hop audio producer here. While I admire the effort, the production value is lacking. If you need a remix, let me know, we'll do this properly.

hey playa' if you are who you say you are....just make it rain!!!!! we all gots nutin' but love for all BB's !!! so stop hatin and bring it !!!!!

This BB rap, although I hate rap music, is perfect for the BB. The single-note repetition from start to finish typifies the one-trick pony BB.

Kevin, why are you promoting a rip-off artist that just rehashed Rass Kass's concept?

T.U.N.D.E is just another wack no-name rapper crying for attention.
