“What The Eff?” Wednesday: Alaska, Son!

7 October 2009 One Comment

When Sarah Palin appeared on the national political scene we assumed that Alaska was filled with conservative hunters and fishermen hoping to one day secede from the union. And Eskimos. Rapping Eskimos.

Before you watch this video keep in mind that Alaska has shockingly loose gun control laws and a pretty serious gang problem with Bloods and Crips and all of that stuff. Also please keep in mind that this week’s “what the eff?” is a bit of a challenge – if you can make it to the end of “This Is Angoon,” by Eagle’s and Raven’s you deserve a big gold star!

So many questions and problems. Autotune is troubling enough, but if you desire said effect and you only have the budget to make yourself sound like you’re playing a kazoo underwater, shouldn’t you just skip it altogether? If you can’t find the beat then shouldn’t you just not rap? Why does the the slim rapper look like he has like 46 teeth? I know I’m being weird but doesn’t he look like an Eskimo version of the kid who was forced to eat pubic hair in She’s All That? Most importantly, why hasn’t Sarah Palin snatched this up as her theme song? I looked up Angoon on Wikipedia and learned that “Angoon is home to Eagle’s and Raven’s, a critically acclaimed rap group that leads the way in Angoon’s music underground. The group is known for there (sp) deep lyrics, [and] truthful tone.” I also learned that Angoon only has 600 residents and as you can see, looks like a crystal laked camping resort. So I guess hip-hop lives. Everywhere.

Don’t let it ever be said that I only mock black folks around here.
