Crank That Sigma Boy

  1. Mar 8, 2008 #1

    A parody of Crank that Soulja boy... about math =).
    There was very little choreographing done, so bear with it.
    I hope you like it. The lyrics are in the "about this video".

    I hate rap, and especially the song and music video this is parodying.

    My main thing against the rap culture is that it often glorifies gang activity and such. They often say that school is bad and that you can make more money doing illicit things, where as in truth, with an education you can make plenty and actually do something positive with your life. They could atleast rap about the problems of life and try to fix them, like reggae. (and yes, I know some do, but not many)

    That's my problem with rap too. That and the fact that it sucks.

    Binzing and Undercover, this new type of nerd rap is promoting nerdish-ness!!

    Agreed though, rappers are not always the best role models. (Let me emphasis "not always") When you have them singing about drugs and guns I can't imagine it helps things like Gang Culture or crim amoong kids.

    It's scary isn't it. It appears myself and many others on this site have followed this new "nerd" fad. It's sweeping the country man.

    Well I'd rather shake my bootie and drop it like its hot to nerd tunes that gangsta tunes! lol...

    Then you dont really know much about rap.
  18. Mar 8, 2008 #17
    Is that a silence of pure shock horror or one of euphoria?
  19. Mar 8, 2008 #18
    I know I don't. I'm probably making assumptions and repeating what others have said...:uhh:

    Arg, at least get some cheer-leaders to dance with you guys or something. This video is low budget, i.e. broke as a joke.
  21. Mar 8, 2008 #20
    :rofl: I think singing about Sigmas will make the chances of cheerleaders wanting to dance in your video minimal!

    WTF do you expect Cyrus, its on Youtube? Yeah I know I don't know every minute detail of rap as well as your all-knowingness, but I know enough to have my opinion, one that is supported by many other people. So what is your stand? That drugs, gang violence, and the promotion of illiteracy (see spellings of "artists" names and "song" lyrics) are good, oh also the demeaning of women?
  23. Mar 8, 2008 #22
    I see your point in your previous post. You are only talking about some rap, in other words what you have come across. So in this case your minimal knowledge is enough. :approve:
  24. Mar 8, 2008 #23
    Please tell me what it is that you know about rap that proves what binzing stated to be false.
  25. Mar 8, 2008 #24
    I suggest you look at some other artists, like Mos Def, KRS-1, Common, etc, and not base your opinion on gangster rap. Otherwise, you're making a generalization.
  26. Mar 8, 2008 #25
    Yes, and I did state that some do differently themed stuff. But you still haven't answered my question.
