There was a thread on ITV yesterday about a video called "Crank That Louisville," but for whatever reason I didn't feel the need to click on it. Then this afternoon a friend of mine sent me a link to the same video. This time I did click on it, and quite frankly, my world hasn't been the same since.
Ladies and gentlemen, "Crank That Louisville":
My head was still spinning from this young man's flows (which could, undoubtedly, turn nuns to ho's) when I noticed that he had put out another video today. I looked at the title - "Get Low Detroit Lions" - at least three times before finally fully coming to terms with the earth-shattering fact that this gift from God was not only a U of L fan like me, but a fellow member of the small and moderately embarrassed fraternity of Detroit Lions fans living in the city of Louisville.
We learn from this video that he is one half of the rap duo "No Parking," and that he goes by the alias "Bus Stop" (I think). His partner in crime - "City Limit" - makes her debut, and lays down the smoothest background vocals since mid-'90s Mariah.
All I have to say is that you best have your fare in hand if you wanna chill at this Bus Stop.
OK, I can do better.
You best hold on to your hat at this Bus Stop because you're about to be blown the F away.
You see that semi-cocky half-smile when he says "2008?" That's budding confidence my friends. Through the wonders of YouTube, we're enabled to witness first-hand the evolution of the most promising American teenage artist since Frankie Lymon.
So to answer your question Bus Stop: no, I don't like it. I love it.
If this kid puts out a Tom Lehman-inspired remix I swear to God I'm going to turn into a stalker.
