I Love You, My Weng Weng!
I wasn’t a blogger back in April of 2007 when this video, “Weng Weng Rap” was released as a YouTube meme, but it’s actually pretty hot in a “What The Eff?” sort of way. First of all, I absolutely adore dwarf performers because it seems that they never really get their fair share (although technically, since they’re smaller than most, wouldn’t their fair share be smaller too…?), and watching them be sassy tickles me like nothing else. Just search “Weng Weng” on YouTube for real clips from his ’80’s film career if you’d like to watch more of his lil’ self gettin’ that work in. Secondly, the hot sample on this track is from the score of one of his films – is it just me or does it sound like something RZA would come up with to lay some Ghostface over? The hook has been stuck in my head all day and I’m not complaining. Hat tip to Undercover Black Man for supplementing my blogging vacation by digging this up.
