This needs very few words:
You heard & saw right. A middle-class white family rapping about their “Swagger Wagon.” I don’t really even know where to begin.
It’s freaking hilarious, to be perfectly honest. And I suppose in one sense it’s a sign of how ubiquitous hip-hop culture has become, which could be a good thing.
Isn’t hip-hop about creativity? making something from nothing? counter-culture? revolution?
I guess this is the fate of all artforms: one day, they’ll be reduced to a snappy jingle to sell a car or something equally pedestrian (no pun intended.)
It just breaks my mother-fathering heart.
