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.

  • Mudasser

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