It’s Time For Some Recession-Proof Rhymes

Unless you've been living under a rock, then you know that this country has been in a recession and has actually been in one for the past year. That's why it's so refreshing to see Rugged N Raw along with Hasan Salaam's video for "I'm Broke and Proud." The message is truly unique in a day and age where senseless beefs and non-budgetary conscious rhymes proliferate like roaches in the projects. And speaking of the PJs, these two are seen hosting a rent party in the video complete with Tropical Fantasy soda. And you also can't get more budget-conscious than taking your date to the museum "where the admission fee is optional." It's also nice to see that being "broke and proud" can actually give birth to a video that has *surprise* originality instead of the usual poseur poised in front of a car, house, or women that are not his. You'll see what I mean after pressing play below. [H/T: EW]

  1. That joint speaks to me right about now. And the part about dates at the museum--looks good, admission fee; optional--priceless! Thanks for posting.

  2. This is pure comedy and so on point. Even if you have money now, you can relate to what these dudes are rapping about in some way, shape or form.
    DEAD @ them passing around that small bag of chips.

  3. BIG UP! Im feeling this song, I can relate, mad nice lyrics too.
