DMV: We Used to the Waiting

This is fantastic. This hammered dude belts out a few lines from Lil Jon’s “Get Low” while rocking back and forth in his Metro seat, setting off little impromptu sing-along in the car.


Just when I thought DC rap was getting better, this comes along.

This is why we can’t have nice things DC. I mean I can’t hate on these guys trying to do their thing, but this is just not good. I think I could have made that beat in my apartment.

However, it is about DC, so i’m going to post it anyways. Maybe they can come up with something better in the future.

Shit DC says.

Obviously I am biased, but this is the best one so far. The actor might not be as good, but the phrases are on point.
