Is 55-Year-Old Casino Exec’s Rap Video “Livin De Life” The Worst Hip-Hop Has Seen?
Shame on you if you haven’t seen 55-year-old Allen Samuel‘s abomination of a rap video “Livin’ De Life.” The casino executive turned emcee challenged Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s “Luxury Rap” with one of his own. Yes, it’s bad. Really, really bad. But the question is whether this was all Samuel’s brainchild or was he simply mirroring what is projected from hip-hop in music videos. Therein lies the dilemma. As craptastic as A. Samuel’s song and video is, it’s not really that different from any other craptastic hip-hop video we’ve seen over the years.
Smoke (weed or otherwise)? Check!
Rhymes about getting out of the hood? Check!
Yeah, it’s pretty much a spitting image of a good 75% of rap videos found on WorldStarHipHop minus the nudity.
So who do you blame for this?
