Vintage Goods: Fast Life x Kool G Rap f. Nas

To be honest, this is one of the most unintentionally funny music videos in hip-hop history.  Check out G Rap in the beginning hitting the treadmill with boots on.  He’s walking at an old man’s pace, yet still manages to break a fictitious sweat, which of course makes it necessary for the French maid/model to come in with a towel for him.  Later on, you see him lounging in a luxurious jacuzzi with, of all things, a Black & Mild in his mouth.  This is why we can’t have nice things.  Then you have a scene where G Rap and Nas are walking toward one another on opposing staircase, one in a black tux and one in a white.  I guess I get why this would sound dope in the director’s mind, but why wouldn’t Nas or G Rap at any point think this might end up looking sort of…funny?  I don’t know, you be the judge.  Then at the end of this mess, you have whoever sang the awful vocals on the song doing the “just happy to be here” two-step of all time while singing at the casino.  I’m outta here.  Oh, but aside form the video and the vocals, the actual raps were top shelf.
