If you ever been in Times Square, or in any bustling downtown street of some big city, you may have come across the smallest fish in the musical food chain: the struggle rapper. It’s a difficult hustle, peddling a CD—which is often really bad—to strangers who have never even heard it before and expecting them to plunk down 5-10 dollars. “Support a local musician,” they said, “It’s that fireee,” they said. That’s usually not the case.
Unless! The Bucket Hat Bandit himself, Schoolboy Q, goes to Times Square and grinds out a living selling his extremely successful album Oxymoron. In a new segment for RapFix, Schoolboy does just that, pestering tourists and locals alike into buying his chart-topping album for ten bones.
The whole premise of the video is hilarious, but the always entertaining rapper makes it a hundred times funnier with the things he says, watch the video above and see for yourself.
