What happens when you mix one part hip-hop history with one part humor? You get CookBook's fantastic video for "7up." There's a ton of classic hip-hop imagery throughout the clip, including a nice NWA theme that ends up doubly funny when you add in the fact that CookBook doesn't curse in his lyrics, and tons of scenes where it's clear everyone involved wanted to have a good time and laugh at themselves. In addition to all that, you also get a great song, too!
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
