What Is Your FEMA Number?

March 29th, 2006 by Editor B

Red Cross came through and gave me accounts
Now I’m at your town getting golds in my mouth

I got this New Orleans bounce track off a compilation CD which was given to Xy by one of her students. I can’t ID it, and of course that’s driving me crazy. Googling the lyrics gets me nothing but a bunch of MySpace kiddies quoting the refrain: “What Is Your FEMA Number?” Anybody know who dropped this?

9 3 1 0 5 with the dash
That’s my FEMA number so give me my cash
I’m headed to the mall to shop at all the stores
Don’t matter if I go broke, you better get yours

Update: I did a little more poking around on the web, and I’m pretty sure this is by 10th Ward Buck and Da Dream Team. Check out his website and buy his DVD about Katrina!

    I think it’s just a parody created by a radio station to the tune of “Laffy Taffy” by D4L.

  2. Editor B Says:

    Ohmigod. You’re so right Liza. At the very least you’re right about Laffy Taffy. Can’t believe I didn’t recognize, given how that’s getting played to death. And Xy said she hears them play bits and pieces of the track in question on some local radio station.

    I have come across a couple references online that attribute it to 5th Ward Weebie. I wonder if it’s him?

  3. Dan Burton Says:

    B,

    But have you heard 5th Ward Weebie’s “F**k Katrina”? It is AMAZING. Basically just an 808 and him. I heard it at the Quintron show during Lundi Gras and the place went WILD. It was one of those moments where you realize everyone is in on something and you’re not. I love that feeling. Gave me goosebumps. I went out and downloaded it the next day.

    BTW- sorry for leaving w/o saying bye to XY and yerself! Getting out of town was a lot more difficult than I thought it’d be and the time slipped away. I had begun to plant roots!

    Be well,
    Dan

  4. Editor B Says:

    More research. I think the track in question is by 10th Ward Buck. Never heard of him before.

    And yeah, Dan, I heard that one by Weebie. I think it’s called “Da Katrina Song” but who knows.

  5. Michael Says:

    I think it says “Red Cross came through and gave me A COUCH
    Now I’m at your town getting golds in my mouth” What do you think?

  6. Marco Says:

    Fucking FEMA gave Stevie Wonder tickets to a Marcel Marceau show too.
    I’ll never to ever give to the Red Christian Cross again. Even if Aaron Neville axed me to.

    Off topic, Xy for Mayor! She looked v. dangerous with that power washer. She could go places with that.
    Best of luck on restoration of your home!

  41. jay Says:

    this song is retarded and so is everyone from new orleans

  42. jay Says:

    this shows how many bums and freeloaders live in this country

  43. chelc Says:

    Well “jay” kiss our new Orleans asses! Your comment proves how many assholes live in this country. Not all of new Orleans is freeloaders, tons of us work our asses off but can’t afford to just up and start over so don’t assume that. And just cause people love their city don’t mean they’re retarded and let me tell you something, katrina was hell on earth and if somebody can make up a song to help make light of a bad situation then more power to them. In the meantime, keep on hating. Love it or hate it, either way you’re thinkin about it! New Orleans kicks ass and were all proud to call it home!

  44. Justin Williams Says:

    Allot of people died there you not going to tell me you wouldent care if that was your daughter who couldent get out of the house in time and drownd in her own bedroom alone thats reality dude. Say Im sorry thats fucked up, not im better than you you all can go to hell. What is wrong with people is they dont have any experience before they claim they do. I was there after katrina and boloxi is bad narlins is bad I stayed a month to tarp houses for washington conservation corps and americore, lived in the fema camps and hit up burbin a day before fat tue I left that morning and let me tell you how could a bunch of bumms and freeloaders make Mardi Gras so badass even after half the people that were there are gone so whats up wit ya fool Jay
