My kids turned me onto this extremely catchy rap song, but the thing I also like about it is how it (sort of–yes, I see the DeLorean in there…) takes a much more downscale view of the hyper-consumption message of so much contemporary culture. It’s all about getting bargains in the thrift shop, recycling grandpa’s stuff, and not blowing scads on some overpriced tee shirt.
I’m not saying it’s PC or anything like that–and this is the PG version btw–but I think I liked the message. If, that is, a 57-year old can even legitimately get the message out of a contemporary rap song. And that’s a big “if.”
