SH: okay so i have to say this is making me a little uncomfortable because i could totally see my mom doing this
SH: and me sitting there having to be like "HAW HAW MOM GOOD ONE"
DFH: In fairness to ForeclosureMom she starts off basically rapping like Fergie.
SH: this is the future of courtney love, by the way
SH: situationally and aesthetically
DFH: Do you think she memorized this, or is her 7-year-old holding cue cards behind the camera?
SH: behind the camera there is a mortified child wondering if this is all the future holds
SH: i think this is actually her deposition
DFH: She keeps referring to it as Xzibit A
SH: the judge is like "oh word, sick multis, you win the law case"
DFH: Hear ye, hear ye, come now the case of ForeclosureMom v. World Class Bankin' Cru
SH: The court rules ForeclosureMom "Hot to Def" and we will now take a brief recess for spinning on cardboard
DFH: Oh dude this is definitely a rap youtube, there are those little fucking banners EVERYWHERE
SH: "CLICK HERE FOR $10 BEATS AND THE TRUTH ABOUT 9/11"
DFH: Well listen I think what we can say we've learned today is that rappers are probably all going to vote for Ron Paul
SH: What I learned today is that white people really love to rap but only feel empowered to do so when it's rap about dumb white guy shit
SH: this can manifest itself as either "HEY LETS MAKE A FUNNY TRACK ABOUT WHOLE FOODS" or "HEY LETS MAKE A SERIOUS RAP ABOUT RON PAUL" but it all comes back to the same thing, awkward dancing and big sunglasses
DFH: See I still haven't figured out WHY so many people are convinced the best way to get their political message out is quietly mumbling it over keyboard drums.
SH: because of street cred, and authenticity, and also because then you get to dress all cool in the video
SH: like samuel l Jackson or ma fratelli
DFH: Oh, so it's a nice cultural vacation.
SH: yes, and in the case of ForeclosureMom, it seems therapeutic
SH: like if she wasn't rapping on youtube she would be screaming at you about atlantis on your way to work
DFH: They took her cats away, so now she raps.
SH: DAMN GOVERNMENT GONNA TAKE MY CATS / ALL I GOT LEFT IS MY AWESOME RAP
DFH: Alright man this was a lot of fun but I am gonna go work on a hot club banger about this one alderman in my district, later on.
SH: okay see you later i am going to be writing my 128-bar freestyle about the powersaver thing they put on my meter
