More Institutional Hip-Hop, This Time From Metro
Everybody's getting in the rap game! Hot on the heels of this UH street paean to a new parking garage comes "the Transit Boyz," Metro's rappin' kidz.
Some years back, we enumerated ten of the most, um, revealing moments in white hip-hop history. While Metro's effort is not quite up to that standard, why is that in a city with one of the top rap scenes in the world, the best we can apparently come up with is a lame rip-off of Licensed to Ill.
Shit's been wack since '88, yo.
Video after the jump...
Here is how Metro is billing the spot:
The Transit Boyz hotly anticipated CD from MTA Records, "Not on My Bus," has been leaked to the Internet prematurely. Referred to as the hottest new Hip-Hop act since the Beastie Boys, this group of young up-and-coming MCs are taking rap back to its roots...straight outta H-Town.
Now, they want to give you, the public, an inside look at "How We Roll."
Metro, always "flossin'" that "mad" slang...
