YouTube right now! "Google That"
In YouTube Right Now, the Daily Dot looks at videos that catch our eyes, push our buttons, and move our dials—and that you’ve just got to watch. Right now!
Google is now the unofficial search engine of hip-hop.
If you ask three veteran rappers from New York City, that's hardly a good thing.
Thanks to former Capone and Noreaga rapper NORE's latest mixtape, Crack on Steroids, the vibrant tech-rap world now has "Google That." The five minute single, which debuted yesterday on YouTube, finds NORE, Styles P, and Wu Tang Clan member Raekwon rapping about living the fast life in the Internet age.
The track’s lyrics are pretty NSFW. Here’s the gist: It used to be easy for rappers to conceal that they "drink tiger balm," "shoot ni**as," "smoke big," and did time in the clink. But now, that information is completely out in the open on the Internet's vast abyss.
NORE raps that, after meeting "a Chinese chick with a crazy ass," she googled him and “shootings, robberies, and big cocaine came up."
Fat chance she sticks around now. Thanks for nothing, Google.
