I’m not usually a big fan of Rap, but every now and then, a song comes along that grabs me by the sack and says “like this shit!” I stumbled across the song “Thrift Shop” after some random searching on YouTube… You know how that works; you watch one thing, and end up in a distant and dark place, where you can’t help but think “how the fuck did I get here!?”

The only good white rapper...

The only good white rapper…

Thankfully, my expedition into the unsettling world of YouTube, (for once) yielded positive results. I’ve never heard of this guy, and I can’t help but wonder why (hey look, I made a rhyme thing!) The song/video is hilarious and not a bad listen at all. So, here it is, watch it and thank me later.

Believe it or not; the video has almost 100 million views at the time of writing this.  That’s a shitload of views for a song about wearing second-hand clothes and being poor (at least, I think that’s what it’s about…)

If this song is as awesome as I think it is, you’ll be hearing it a lot over the next few weeks; let’s just hope that the radio doesn’t fuck it up by playing it every 5 minutes (like they did with Gangnam Style).

– Tank, out!
