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.

    This cats epic. Shad. I will definitely remember his name.

    That Fresh Prince video is incredible.

    Well done.

  • christina

  • Mitch

    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 this is one of the best hiphop videos i’ve seen in a long time. i can’t believe how well they reproduced the sets and props.

  • Oh SO Tight.

  • this is so fresh. really good quality for a small budget, damn.

  • they did an awesome job on reproducing the intro.

    i love how they made up corny names when the credits are rolling haha

  • 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.

Book Giveaway: Chromaphilia by Stella Paul

Phaidon is releasing a new book all about colour and art. Written by author and art historian Stella Paul, Chromaphilia invites readers to consider the many ways that colour has been theorized and utilized to express meaning and emotion throughout different time-periods and cultures.

Each chapter of the book covers a specific colour (Red, Blue, Purple, Gold, Yellow, Green, White, Grey, and Black), and offers insight, artwork and anecdotes you probably didn’t know. Like how Yves Klein’s obsession with a particular shade of blue led him to develop his own customized (and patented) paint. Or how many crushed bugs it used to take to make the coveted red dye used for royal garments. (The answer is 70,000!)

Check out more images from Chromaphilia below or grab yourself a copy when it’s released on March 13th. We also have one to give away! To snag the book, simply post a link to any Booooooom article and write 1 sentence about the artist’s use of colour in the comment section below.

The winner will be selected in two weeks!
