Oh no he did NOT.

It's been a long time a song has made us say that. And damn does it feel good.

Striking somewhere between Jay-Z's coolly brutal "Threat" and unhinged Albert Finney from Network, the latest single from James Christos is a magazine full of teflon-tipped lyrical bullets aimed at one thing and one thing only: Kansas City radio station KPRS Hot 103 Jamz.

Beginning with a (virtual) called-in bomb threat to Carter Broadcasting, the song launches into a catchy, bangin' tirade against the urban station that has many locals up in arms for not playing homegrown music.

Sparing allies like Kenny Diamondz and JT Quick and taking aim at the station's leaders, Christos piles on verse after hilarious verse, skewering commercial radio culture along the way:

With the jocks, I'm cool, but the execs are spineless

Catch 'em at a live remote, Cricket Wireless

JT, I'ma need them keys to the van

I hate to see you caught up in the crossfire, fam

Smashin' down 71, bumpin' my song

In the back of the van is a large car bomb

Sean Tyler duct-tapped on the passenger side

'Cause light-skinned dude make better hostages, right?

The bangin' production and catchy-ass chorus are just gravy -- for that verses like the one above, I'm declaring "K.T.R.S." song of the year.

Don't waste any more time with this preamble. Download the song for free below. And then call the Jamzline and request it: (816) 576-7103.
