I can’t decide which of his numbers I like best. The Lama’s unique version of “Baby Got Back” is great, and I love it when guest artist Lady Gaga sings “Hello, Dalai” to him, but I think my favorite is when he puts on blackface and does his Al Jolson impersonation on “Mammy.”
The only real disappointment on the album is his odd decision to select NWA’s Fuck the Police for his long-awaited duet with Tony Bennett, although one must concede his timing coincides perfectly with the current protest zeitgeist. The Lama always knows how to read the room.
Other tracks (from the comments):
Dolpopa Don’t Preach
I’m Too Zen (For My Shirt)
It’s A Beautiful Day In The Buddahood
I’m Like A Bird (In A Former Life)
Jonang On Me
Thangka For Being A Friend
and of course
I think he’ll have a ton of big hits.
Big hitter, the Lama.
