Are you having a bad day at work today? Is your work piling up? Is your boss being a complete pain in the ass? If so, this is the track for you.
Everyone has a job that they hate at least once in their life, so here is a song for the masses. Max Burgundy is back at it again with his newest hit “Save Ferris (Fuck My Job).” Featuring The Office theme song by The Scrantones, which is unmistakably catchy, you will be immediately drawn in to what Burgundy has to say…which is a lot.
“Save Ferris (Fuck My Job),” is about to be the anthem of the summer. “Life’s a bitch, sometimes you need to Michael Vick it,” Burgundy raps with both fun and passion, giving the finger to life’s responsibilities. With an incredible beat that will keep the party going into your long awaited weekend off, Max proves to the world (and any ex-bosses) that he is the next big thing in music. He’s already won us over.
Hailing from the streets of the Bronx and now currently living in Brooklyn, Max knows there is no tougher place to work than New York, and he surely has the experience to draw from as he has worked in the restaurant industry. His colorful style goes beyond the boundaries of rap, and truly draws in the listener no matter what their genre of choice is. With long time collaborator KayKay on the Beatz, and a dab of Dr. Dre’s drum loops, “Save Ferris (Fuck My Job)” is ready to take action. Even Ferris Bueller is referenced for those times that you just want to take a sick day. We’ve all taken a couple of those, right?
For anyone who has ever had a job they hated, this is for you. For anyone who has ever had a nagging boss, this is for you. For anyone who has ever hid underneath their desk, this is for you. For anyone who has ever called in sick, this is for you. Max Burgundy is here to help get out the aggression without getting you fired. Get ready to let off some steam.
