One of the real reasons I'm putting up this blog, though, as well, is because of the guys over at The Real. They do really funny stuff most of the time, obviously centered around Hip-Hop and the culture associated with it, but I can't figure out their latest video. I'm not sure if it's pure genius, maybe the smartest dig that I've ever seen, or if it's "just" pure comic genius. There's quite a difference and the first time I watched it, I laughed out loud. But then it stayed with me the whole day and I had to come back and watch it again. Then I watched it again. And now I'm thinking about it a lot. It references a ton of stuff, including Nas' back catalog, Memph Bleek's fading career and, of course, the new controversy. So, obviously, it's gonna help if you know a bit about Hip-Hop and the recent past thereof. But even if you don't, I think you'll dig the video. Check it below.
