Ron Artest, who will go down as one of the most thug NBA players in the history of the sport, has made a go of being a rapper as well. He released his premiere album "My Way" in 2006 and has now returned with a new track "Bury Me." Our thoughts:

The Good:
Space-age synths
"Everybody's got guns. And I don't got one. But I can get one." Positive messaging

The Bad:
"Bury me..." chorus chant indiscernable
Versing about a hot girl who likes dead dudes? WTF

Defining lyric:
"Catch me at the Ritz with the Foreman Grill."

The Verdict:
Artest's flow is still clunky. And we have no clue what this song is about.
