I'm sure I'm not stealing it from just her, since the video has almost 16 million hits, so it's gotten around. How I missed it until last weekend is beyond me. I live a sheltered life, I guess.
What I find truly amazing about this video, and I hope/think it is done tongue-in-cheek, is that it is exactly what I think should epitomize most white rap....speaking of sheltered lives.
I have never understood the teens from the upper middle class, to downright rich class, who blast rap from their pimped out Audi A4 that mom & dad provide them when they turn 16. Yes, these kids know from hardship and life on the street. I suppose the hardship is not getting the Mercedes. They can so relate!
But Jon LaJoie hits the nail on the head, puts it in perspective and them in their place.....just a bit. It works on almost every aspect, except when they do one break away for his friend. Other than that, it's golden.
