Today's 12 O'Clock Track is one song that pops up a couple times in The Corner's six-episode run: "Pull Ya Gunz Out" by deceased drag queen, radio personality, and Baltimore club legend Tony Boston, aka Miss Tony.
A classic example of the raw and uncomplicated local spin on club music, "Pull Ya Gunz Out" is rugged, repetitive, and infectious. Miss Tony spends a large portion of the track shouting out different locales across the country and instructing folks to, well, "pull ya gunz out"; Tony's delivery is reminiscent of the call-and-response vocals that are an integral part of go-go, a regional offshoot of funk localized to the D.C. metro area. Check out the YouTube stream of "Pull Ya Gunz Out" below, though chances are you'll enjoy it a whole lot more blasting it at a New Year's Eve party than listening to it off of a pair of computer speakers.
