At the risk of posting things way too often, I come bearing wonderful news: The Knicks are once again embracing their mid-90's anthem, "Go New York Go New York Go", and have apparantly filmed a music video which will probably be debuted at their home opener wednesday. For those of you in need of a refresher, here is a 2004 edition of the song. One view should convince you that it's among the best songs of all time.
This song is one of the many things which our recent teams have lacked. Instead, we were subjected to that "Take Me Home" song. In a major improvement from "Take Me Home", which featured the underwhelming presence of Doug E. Fresh the Knicks have gotten Q-Tip to be the latest rapper to grace "Go New York Go New York Go" - a song which was once very briefly my ringtone, before it got overwhelmingly annoying - with his velvety tones. Let's revisit Mr. Fresh's verse on "Take Me Home":
"TO MY WEST SIDE CREW, MY EAST SIDE CREW, TRUE NEW YORKERS WEAR ORANGE AND BLUE" - Doug E. Fresh
If you're familiar with Q-Tip's work at all, you know he can do better than that. For those of you not familiar with A Tribe Called Quest, but who have seen the skit Knee High Park from Chappelle's Show, you're probably thinking, "oh, that's why that guy is famous", and you probably aren't very interesting. If you're familiar with neither of these things, we will never get along.
If you follow the very first link at the top, you'll see that Q-Tip stood in front of a green screen besides a few Knicks. The photos are amazing and make me eagerly await the video.
Gangsta smile! I can almost hear Mardy thinking "I'm too sophisticated for this rap shit, man."
I think every other player should be green screened in front of, like highlights of basketball, or like a court, or like New York landmarks, except they should greenscreen Mardy Collins in front of like a weather map tracking a high pressure front over North Dakota.
Cuttable! Consider that video I posted yesterday my statement that the Knicks messed up by cutting Junior - I hope he at least gets in the Go New York Go New York Go video, at the least, because I don't think Malik Rose and Jerome James will fill in for him very well in music video form.
Does Danilo Gallinari not have armpit hair?
