Rapper Pitbull is set to release his most ambitious single yet on Tuesday, September 13. The song “Goin’ South with the Muffin Man (Nibble ‘Till Yo’ Numb)” is credited to Pitbull with The First Lady of Country Music Miss Tammy Wynette, DJ Dick Cheney & His Turntable Domination and Phat Phyllis Diller on the Ivories feat. the sweetness of Chuck Norris’ tough hand bell love and introducing MC Extra Pickles and a belch from Björk.
When asked how he managed to score a duet with the late First Lady of Country Music, Pitbull stated that he hired a medium and State Farm agent by the name of Madame Melon Coli. “She was amazing! She came into the studio, channeled Tammy, and lowered the premium on my car insurance. I highly recommend her.”
The Latin rapper was equally impressed by former Vice President Cheney. “He grabbed the vinyl in one hand and manipulated the crossfader in the other and produced the purest twiddle scratch that I’ve ever heard.”
Pitbull regrets that he had to get nasty with comedienne, actress, and pianist Phyllis Diller. “I wanted to her to have fun tickling the ivories, but she was trying too hard, being all serious and everything. So I got in her face and told her I wanted some carefree 88s or I was gonna step on the tube to her oxygen tank and 86 her. Listening to her piano on the final mix, I have to say that fear is inspiring.”
Many Chuck Norris fans may be surprised to learn the he is an accomplished hand bell ringer, but he’s studied with world renowned hand bell maestro Otto Tinkle for the past few years. “Man, you should see him whip on those white gloves and the grace with which he swings those bells,” Pitbull recalls. “It’s poetry in motion.”
To push his boundaries even further, Pitbull decided that he wanted to include a vocal by a mystery singer, namely someone he’s never met, so he sent his assistant out into the streets of Boise, Idaho with recording equipment and recorded a solo by a nameless female vocalist whom the only thing Pitbull knows about her is that she likes extra pickles on her hamburgers–and MC Extra Pickles was born.
The rapper was surprised when Icelandic singer Björk stopped by to watch him work. “Before you knew it, we were both chugging two-liter bottles of Coke and trying to see who could record the longest burp. She’s a weird chick, but a good sport and a champion burper.”
The song also includes an uncredited appearance by the Helen Keller Deaf Chorus. “Man, they suck, but I just love those kids and wanted to include them on the record, too. Thank God for Auto-Tune!”
Pitbull proudly states that he is breaking another record by offering 999 remixes of “Goin’ South with the Muffin Man (Nibble ‘Till Yo’ Numb).” “We got dance remixes, jazz remixes, acoustic versions, reggae versions, country mixes, hip hop mixes, toy piano mixes, and any other kind of mix you can think of.”
And what does the provocative title refer to? “Well, let’s just say it could be about sex, or it could be about some guy who just likes to carb-load. I leave that to the listener to decide.”
