I kid, I kid.
If you haven't heard the news, Chuck, James and Andrew from Grand Palace were caught up in the car jacking spree that went down on the East side last night. They are all doing fine. I think James has a bullet in his leg, Chuck's wrist got skimmed and somebody took the sleeves from Andrew's shirt. Crazy shit, that's for sure, but it's good to hear that they made it out relatively unscathed.
I'm hoping that this means we'll see a new album form Booty Hoop, James' turn-of-the-century rap group with Self's Matt Mahaffey. James suddenly has the requisite amount of street cred to cut a solid rap record. Maybe they could play a Springwater benefit?
After the jump, five gun-themed videos that you can take to the bar or take to the park. Just don't take 'em to the state house. That's totally not cool.
Crime & the City Solution - I Have the Gun
I totally forgot that this band even existed, until it was time to make a tacky joke. Go figure.
Mobb Deep -- Shook Ones pt. 2
What can I say, I love Mobb Deep! I was at lunch with the Kindergarten Circus when I found out about the guys and the first thing I thought was "when the slugs penetrate, you feel a burnin' sensation." Damn, that song rules.
TheSkatalites - Guns of Navaronne
One of the world's coolest music ensembles covering one of the best film themes of the 20th century--and it's vaguely topical!
Gun Club - Sleeping in Blood City
Marty Robbins - Running Gun
The song rules, as do most Marty Robbins Songs about firearms, but you need to watch Marty Robbins do his John Wayne impression. Frikkin' Classic.
