Links: A Morning Video

Worth your time…

by Lang Whitaker

Since MTV and VH1 don’t really show music videos anymore, I’m sort of behind on my video watching. But I saw this online last night and it’s pretty amazing. What does this have to do with basketball? Nothing really — the group is named after Charles Barkley? — just thought it was a dope video…

    This guy is kind of like Jimmy Fallon’s little, cooler brother. And the song is fantastic.

    The ending is fantastic. Great start to the morning!! Thanks, Lang.

    They actually aren’t named for charles barkley, they said it in an interview

    And just like that, the video is no longer available. WTF?

    Thank you, Warner Music Group. Well-played not wanting free promotion for your artists. You have failed.

    The mainstream music industry is a joke.

    I’m fixing it…hang on…

    OK, new version. Lesson here: record company people read The Links, I guess.

    Lang, aren’t the US and Canada holding a scrimmage today? Will there be any coverage on that?

    I was hoping it was gonna be the B.B.D. video for “above the rim”

    Gnarls and Charles are not at all afiliated. And Lil Wayne’s version of their only good song (Crazy) is 10000x better

    That video is an amazing recreation of my life story… all the way down to the end.
    “are you even listening to me?”

    Yes, that was an excellent video. Thanks, Lang. I’d turn on MTV and try to find other, equally “dope” videos (you can’t use the term “dope” unless you a- write for SLAM and b- are a descendent of Anglo-Saxons), so anyway, yeah, I would watch MTV, but they probably have o a show where the parents of a girl pick out two guys to compete with the aforementioned girl’s existing boyfriend for her heart. And whoop-de-doo, the girl is 19 and likes blink 182 and junior mints. Oh MTV, you are the Steve Francis of music channels (once great, now not).

    OK, by a show of hands, who says “dope” in the SLAMDome besides Lang and, ahem, Ryan? I have a hunch Khalid doesn’t use it as much. Unfortunately, because of my cyber-interactions with you good people, I have become a big “dope” user. Wait, that didn’t come out right.

    By the way, after years of reading the Links, I’m finally making my pilgrimage to Atlanta on August 1st. I am expecting to see statues of Lang everywhere. That would be dope.

    Lil Wayne sucks, BET… Unless ur 15, then, in that case, he’s apparently the greatest of all time.

    1st prize to MP3…

  • http://Hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    I say dope Tariq. But Im country.

  • ciolkstar

    I don’t hate Wayne (as most hip hop heads claim to – Ala the 50 cent backlash) But he’s remake of Crazy is one of the worst songs I’ve ever heard. And honestly Im not really fellin Cee Lo since the Goodie Mob days.

  • ciolkstar

    I used to say “dope” constantly. But it can be confusing. Actually, I still say it a lot.

  • Young Chris MP3

    50 Cent sucks too ciolkstar…
