Ever since Kansas City rapper Mac Lethal rapped over Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now” instrumental while making pancakes (over 29 million views and counting!), he’s become well known on the Internet for his highly shareable fast-rapping YouTube videos. So basically, he’s like the Twista of Tumblr.
For his latest clip, Mac Lethal recreates the beat for Kanye West and Jay-Z’s “Niggas In Paris” using just a loop pedal, and an assortment of hair products, including an electric razor, a hairbrush, a hair dryer, scissors, and a flatiron. Once the beat is finished, he raps about how bald he is:
“You know I’m bald so hard that my whole head’s shiny / so it’s easy to find me / What’s Rogaine to a mothafucka like me could you please remind me?”
With a loop pedal and a few household items, Mac Lethal is definitely in his zone. I don’t even know what that means, but it’s provocative. It gets the people going.
