A couple weeks back, the online music theory world exploded in controversy over the beat to Ludacris’s 2001 hit Roll Out. No one could agree on how the rhythm worked, and no one could understand why anyone would disagree with their version. Arguments were had, things were said that could never be taken back, and at the end of it all we never did come to an agreement on what exactly was going on in the song. But what makes it so complicated? Oh, uh… That’s what this video’s about. You should probably watch it if you want to know the answer. Or don’t. I’m not the boss of you.
