Vindicated At Last...

See I told you people these guys were hipsters. Let this be a lesson to all those who doubt the truth spoken on these pages.

Video Of The Year. If there is any justice in this cold, broken world, this will get major play.

does this make camp lo hipsters for their "black nostaljack" video?

I don't think you quite understand what a hipster is, Zeus. But I like the video.

Renato-

I'm more than well aware what a hipster is. I live near Wiliamsburg.

Alright man, I just don't see much in the way of hipsterdom in the Cool Kids, nor a lot of so-called hipster acts. If anyone is a hipster rapper, it's Cadence Weapon, but he makes better music than all these guys combined (although perhaps he has no one song as good as the "Cappuccino Remix").

And I meant no offense by my previous message. Keep up the good work!

Renato-

I am being a biiiiit facetious about the whole hipster rap thing.

I kind of hate this video. In addition to looking like shit, they seem to have half-assed the concept, in that the clothes are all '70s but the cheesy effects and crappy camera are really '90s. And it undercuts the slight menace in the production without really adding anything. The genius of the 'sensual seduction' video was that Snoop was super committed to the concept, and the video went really well with the song. I feel this kind of fails at both. The 'trailer' that was up on youtube worked a lot better for me.


And that mustache is really fucking stupid.

I don't get this song. On the one hand, they seem to be on some "shitty nerd rappers can brag about their cars too" shit. Except, of course, being shitty gay nerd rappers they can't do so one tenth as well as Young Dro. But then on the other, they make this video, which ironizes a completely unironic song on some "see, we're too intelligent to be sincerely bragging about our [non-existent] Bentleys" shit. That way they have some kind of fallback position when the dumbass okayplayer folks are like, "why are our favorite conscious college-educated rappers talking about (gasp) their material possessions??" And the video isn't even funny. So basically, they're confused, fake, unfunny, boring, and incompetent. Fuck that.

"tray: 1, doc: 0."

Absolutely not. I don't even remember writing that. Whooo boy, I must have been drunk.
