Dollars Make Sense.

Churcccch.

I approach southern rap music with extreme caution. This is why:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The Church Dance.

“It’s so easy a caveman can do it.”

My favorite part is at 0:52. Kid walks right through the shot, looks at dancing duo, shakes his head, then walks the other way.

Classic.

But before you dismiss this video as ridiculous, I would strongly encourage you to treat the above vid a wee bit more serious like. Take note of its simple yet infectious beat. The cute little black children it features. Its easy to repeat dance. And its overall inclination towards buffoonery.

With those notes you just jotted, I’d like you too please distinguish this vid from a Soulja Boy video. Or a GS Boys video. Or Unk an video.

Gotcha.

Trick question. Cuz truth is you can’t. And herein lies the problem. When it no longer becomes easy to tell a tell apart parody/imitation from the supposed genuine deal, something done gone terribly wrong.

Solution: I propose a complete do over. With the exception of a select few (OutKast, UGK, Goodie Mob, T.I., Gucci Mane, Big K.R.I.T.), I say we work to pass a referendum preventing music originating outta the Dirty Dirty from infiltrating our air waves till they decide to come correct. Enough is enough.

Imma get started on the paperwork right now..
