Gym Class Heroes - Cookie Jar (feat. The-Dream)

Having successfully raided the guilty pleasures drawer by musically raping both Supertramp and Jermaine Jackson, Gym Class Heroes are back with the lead track from their forthcoming album 'The Quilt'. It's a humorous tale of struggling to remain faithful in the heat of temptation and features a stronger R&B vibe than previous tracks, thanks to the soulful tones of The-Dream. Throw in their trademark metaphor-laden rhymes which put the tongue firmly in cheek and you've created a track which will wrap around your ears in no time.

Fun, catchy but ultimately disposable, purists may scorn this release as annoyingly jovial but it's the sound of a band fulfilling their remit of putting the fun back in hip-hop whilst seeking to push things forward. Just don't expect any kind of revolution, and stay well clear if suffering from a sweet craving or attempting to diet.
