Keenan Cahill Performs "Down on Me" With 50 Cent
Keenan Cahill recently went from creepy kid with millions of hits on YouTube to creepy kid with millions of hits on YouTube who performed with 50 Cent. The 15-year-old Chicago native gained popularity by expressively lip-syncing various pop songs from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” to Rihanna’s “Only Girl in the World” (this is what you like, America). His stock sky rocketed when he performed “Down on Me” on Chelsea Lately, with special guest 50 Cent.
50 Tyson is probably the worst "rapper" in the history of hip-hop, but he insists that he’s the best. Hence the web videos that can't stop, won't stop. In fact, he’s so confident that he has convinced us to watch gems like “Imma Ball Player,” “I Ain’t Gon’ Lie” and his own version of “A Milli,” over and over again, which is why he has several hundred thousand hits. Upon further research we found out that he was autistic so we recant our statement about him being the worst to ever touch a mic (or a digital camera). We can’t make fun of people with disabilities, right (word to Eli Porter)?

Gucci Mane, Souljah Boy, OJ Da Juiceman and Waka Flocka Flame are some of the most polarizing rappers in hip-hop. Some hip-hop heads feel the southern rhyme spitters make music for the special ed variety but then there are the fans who think naysayers are just hating. The folks over at Be Yo Own Boss Entertainment decided to capture the former sentiment in a parody cartoon.
Kat Stacks surfaced earlier this year with a video exposing alleged sexual trysts with some of the lesser known members of Young Money and other D-list rappers. She's fond of giving out cell numbers and address but the biggest incident was when the former stripper released a video depicting an alleged pile of cocaine in Souljah Boy’s hotel room. Despite being slapped on camera, jumped by some hefty women on camera, dragged out of a club kicking and screaming on camera⎯Notice the pattern here? Like a roach, she kept coming back for more and people just don’t stop watching her videos.
Baraka Flocka Flame – “Head of State”
We’re not sure if this presidential parody over the beat for “Hard in the Paint” is going to help Obama’s cause for re-election or hurt it. Judging from excessive use of profanity, including the “n-word” and other extreme hip-hop stereotypes already associated with black people in general, we’re going to go with the latter. Ironically, at over 1,000,000 views somebody appreciates it.
Three-year-old Catches Parents Having Sex
It’s highly probable that most people have been in this little girl’s shoes at the same age. Here, the cute three-year-old innocently recounts the story of her parent’s night of passion but in about 10 years, when she gets old enough to realize what really went down, she’s probably going to be scarred for life. Note to parents: Making babies⎯or practicing⎯is fun but make sure the kids are in bed first, or at least keep the door locked.
At over 1,000,000 views on YouTube, Phil Wade’s “The Best Trey Songz Impression Ever,” is aptly titled. The young singer has a slew of video parodies ranging from Ray Charles impersonations to a Gospel remix of Rick Ross’ “BMF.” However, the video that started it all was when Wade was unwittingly caught on camera impersonating Trey Songz by doing his own rendition of “Yo Side of The Bed.” Wade’s impression is so hilarious that even Trey Songz gave him props. Wade has pipes but if he actually gets a record deal that shag needs to disappear.
Best Cry Ever
Under normal circumstances, anyone needing drug intervention isn’t a laughing matter. Enter former champion boxer Rocky Lockridge. After Lockridge's sons tearfully pleaded with him to overcome his drug addiction he wailed uncontrollably. However, when a random producer remixed the embattled boxer's cries into an Auto-Tune version, “Best Cry Ever” became the major source of web troll hilarity. This proves that Auto-Tune is good for something more than just making bad singers sound like they have some semblance of a voice⎯it negates everything tragic about a man with a serious addiction.
The Gregory Brothers
The Gregory Brothers are talented musicians who found their niche by remaking catch phrases from popular viral videos into hit songs utilizing Auto-Tune and their band. The Antoine Dodson “Bedroom Intruder” song is their biggest hit on iTunes. The song did so well that they gave half their earnings to Dodson, which helped him move out of the hood. The Gregory Brothers’ other hits include “The Rent is Too Damn High,” “Mommy and Daddy Song,” and more.
Antoine Dodson - "Hide Ya Wife, Hide Ya Kids"
When the police didn’t answer the call about a bedroom intruder's attempt to rape Dodson’s sister, the Alabama native called the local news and delivered a message to the attacker: “We gon' find you so run and tell dat, homeboy!” Not satisfied with just a warning to the assailant, he delivered the gospel to everyone else in the projects: “Hide yo kids, hide yo wife and hide yo husband too cuz they rapin' everybody out here.” He now has a Halloween costume, a hit song on iTunes, a performance on the BET Hip-Hop Awards and an iPhone sex offender app under his bet. It’s safe to say that he’s out of the hood now.
