In today’s irony report, Seanie Mic, the man whose parody videos have piles up 100’s of 1,000’s of 1,000,000’s of views, seems to always be present with his camera for local shows.

Thankfully he was on hand to capture Naledge (Kidz In The Hall) wearing a DOPE Couture shirt on stage with a wig-wearing Double-O?  There’s also footage of U-N-I doing my favorite song of theirs, ‘Beautiful Day,’ and Warren G running through This DJ & Regulators.  The bass was heavy on some of the songs, so sound quality is low.  Hopefully someone over at Heavy Gun has footage of Grey Granite opening up.  Thanks again to Sean for the video.

U-N-I – Beautiful Day:

Video: Tanya Morgan – ‘App For That’ (got SOLE? appearance)

My beautifully wonderful Twitter-buddy, KJ, pointed out the new Tanya Morgan iPhone App commercial features got SOLE?, Indy’s premier sneaker/streetwear boutique.  Mike & his wife are two of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, and they put in the long hours to keep Indianapolis (and the world) looking fresh.

Check out Donwill at the bus stop, wearing a got SOLE? New Era fitted, followed by Von Pea & Ilyas spitting verses.  If I was a rapper, I might even go download the Freestyle App…. looks kinda dope.

NBA’s New Taxi Ads With Rainn Wilson, Look Familiar?

(Jimmy the cab driver, circa 1993)

When I first saw the new NBA commercials featuring Rainn Wilson (Dwight from The Office) as a crazy cab driver with different NBA players in the back, I thought they were hilarious.  Then I realized it reminded me of a similar ad campaign from the 90’s… which I automatically assumed was from the NBA, and they had just re-worked it.

WRONG.

Thanks to The Google, my memory became more accurate.  The ads weren’t from the NBA, they were from MTV.  The character of ‘Jimmy the cab driver’ was a household name and commercial in the 1990’s, played by actor Donal Logue.  Classic commercials that everyone born before ’84 should remember.

So, what is it….. a blatant rip-off, or a clever homage to a childhood hero, Jimmy the cab driver?

Working my way back to hip-hop topics, and LJ is down with the ROC so this gets me halfway there. The target of his tweet epithets (twepithets? ok maybe not) posted quite a thoughtful response on his blog, which I might come back to later. 

Video: Mos Def x Black Thought x Eminem

The general consensus is that without this cypher and the Goodie Mob reunion, the _._._. Hip Hop Awards would have just been a Gucci Mane showcase.  I know I’m not alone in imagining this trio of MC’s on a track together for years upon years. Prayers were answered with an Em, Mos & Thought cypher with DJ Premier on the decks.  Even better.

Again, early consensus says Em > Mos > Thought (and Tariq is one of my favorite MC’s, so this says a lot)

Video: alpha.live x Tony Styxx ‘Middle of the Street’ (Indiana)

(via alpha’s blog)

This is the live, acapella version of Middle of The Street, one of my favorite songs from alpha.  If you have alpha.live & DOPE Couture Present: Steal From The Rich, you should be familiar with this clip from the last track on the mixtape.  If you don’t have it, just quickly download it, and no one will judge.

New Video: Dave Chappelle – Secret of Depression (Laugh Factory)

I can’t tell you how happy this makes me because A) Chappelle is doing new material, and B) I’ve said similar things about The Secret, after being forced to read the chapter about visualizing your bills as checks! Lol..

Can’t wait for a full stand-up special.  We just might be okay…. after all….. sun gon’ shine….
