MY NECK, MY BACK, MY MOMMA?: Perhaps you have heard the new R&B single "My Neck, My Back (Lick It)," by newcomer Khia. Judging by the two times I've heard it and the lyrics, it's every bit as racy, but not nearly as sexy, as the similar "Oops! (Oh My)" by Tweet. So you could imagine my surprise last week when, while listening to the New York hip-hop station Hot 97, an 11-year-old girl called in to request "Lick It." To DJ Angie Martinez's credit, she immediately demanded that the girl put her momma on the line, and Martinez asked whether Momma had in fact heard the song. No, of course. So Martinez played the song. We didn't get to hear the rest of the saga of the girl and her momma, but the loud squeal that could be heard all throughout Brooklyn that day was most likely the result of an audible momma-daughter bitch-slap.
