If only somebody had told Yung Berg.
You see, it’s cold in the D, y’all. “The D” being that wonderful and majestic American city that actually sits north of Canada: Detroit. Unfortunately, it’s not all wine and roses as evidenced by this video by rapper/singer T-Baby. This not-too-professional clip exposes the pain, despair, and utter hopelessness that a lot of the Motor City’s residents feel every day.
I won’t front, when I first saw it, I was ready to mock it, even if it meant getting my ass whipped and chain stolen the next time I was in the 313. But then after watching it again and again, the snark left me. Yes, the video is amateur and T-Baby could work just a bit more on her delivery, but she’s trying to get a message across. On top of that, she’s not fuckin’ waiting around. She got the video shot, probably on a VHS camcorder, and put it out herself. Hey, I’m a big fan of the DIY work ethic. Check T-Baby out after the jump.
Looks like we have a new contender for Catchphrase of the Year: “How the fuck do we ‘posed to keep peace?!”
