Everybody’s dropping cats over this music video, like it’s child abuse or something. At first glance it may seem like some kid with a generous allowance imitating what he sees on the BET, maybe to set himself up with a future. After all he’s a little short for basketball yet, and you know what they say about that. But you’re wrong. It is insidious, it is sexism, it is teaching kids to objectify women. Apparently.
There are bums in this video. Multiple bums. And because he is short, they happen to be at eye level. Huffington Post posits it may be “too explicit?” asking a very real question and in no way trying to drum up page hits. A Vibe blogger called CPS on the kid’s folks because it is the only way anyone will ever think of Vibe at all. But all bums are at eye level when you are six! Should the ladies in question feel a little strange about shaking their asses at a 1st grader for an entire day of shooting, with multiple costume changes? Sure, and I believe the uncomfortable feelings are downright palpable, but by the time they realized what was going on they had most likely blown their commission on blow and various animal print summer wear at the thrift shop. There was no turning back.
Of course, you can always count on the YouTube comments in any video to give us incisive analysis of items of cultural significance. I once watched a Carl Sagan video that somehow sparked a flame war concerning the proper way to consume fecal matter from one’s own mother’s vagina. YouTube is second only to Yahoo! Answers as the internet’s repository for Mensa over-qualifiers.
Geeze indeed. Kid’s dropping rhymes at a fourth grade level, and you can’t force a cogent sentence out of that shriveled up dishrag under your weave. Though you do have psychic whore telling powers, so you may have a valid argument.
Why would you… OH! I smell ya. Because he’s a little brown boy in a pool. This kid’s just talking about dancing with older ladies, and you’re talking about your poop. Who’s had the tough upbringing now?
I reposted this 1) because I laughed my ass off for 5 minutes and 2) this is the caliber of people adding their voices of dissent on YouTube. Do you really want to be in this club? Not secretly, but out in the anonymous internet public? Leave the kid alone. How many of you have over a million hits on YT and a single on iTunes? Your jealous of him and his haircut and his alarming outy that looks like he swallowed a live chicken whole and it wants out.
Yes! Yes, I bet exactly that. This single is sending the little perv to college. You’re always going to be a lower-functioning racist. That likes metal. Your projection is showing, fuck head.
Really I don’t see the big deal. The kid wants the ladies to know his songs are intended to make their posteriors shake in an urban, dancey kind of way. Kids have been giving dance instruction in lyrics since “The Hokey Pokey.” Any further implied sexualization of the lyrics are in the minds of the oversexed listener.
The only real problem I see is the “all night long” part. Aspiring young rappers should probably have a bed time no matter how many whores he’s Super Soakered that day. Little bastard had to be plum tuckered.
Not to mention the very real decline of standards for hot chicks in hip hop videos. This can’t be the best the casting director could do just outside Miami. If it is, this is my new reason why I don’t visit Miami.
Also, yes, his dick is on his stomach.
