Shad – Fresh Prince Parody!

There are very few rappers to get excited about these days. Shad is one of them. The London, Ontario native just released a hilarious video for his latest single “The Old Prince Still Lives at Home”. The video, produced by Hot Dog Garbage, is a detailed parody of the opening of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And when I say detailed, I mean it. Wow! (Hit reload if the video loaded off-center)

Great song and great video. Nas should take some notes this is how you do a low-budget video right.

Shad – Brother (Watching) – another great track.

    Hilarious video,
    love The Fresh Prince, so this goes hand in hand.

    I wish he would have spliced in the extended intro scenes, would have scored MAJOR points in my book.

    yea the names are all references to the lyrics he’s saying, soo good

  • Mudasser

    i thought both were pretty good. moviemaking is rarely taken seriously by rappers so this is fresh.

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
