Remember The Pompous Rangers Fan That Went Viral? Well, Here Is His Rap Music Video Featuring Mason Plumlee
Well, let's take a little journey back through time to see what I originally said about this guy....
Watching that interview is basically the same thing as watching a parody video on YouTube. That guy was like the 'Saturday Night Live' version of a pompous, bombastic Rangers fan. It was a self promotional video. Was it exaggerated? Yup. Was it douchey? It was basically the personification of the word. That's the point. I highly doubt that's the last we have heard of Will Rouse. He's a persona that doesn't exist behind closed doors.
:Pats self on back: Nailed it Bob, absolutely nailed it.
I stand by the fact that the "Benjamin Franklin's is killin' the game" line is absolute gold. However, just like anything else, if you repeat it 65 times in 3 minutes it's damn near nauseating. I don't even hate where this kid's head was at with this video, but the execution was cringeworthy. Either be funny or be talented, but don't get stuck in some unwatchable limbo that isn't remotely close to either. This video had an NBA player shooting a goddamn money gun and I still had to force myself to get to the end. That's never a good sign.
Hey Will, I don't want to kill your spirit or anything, but how about you study every rap single that has been released since the 90's. Rule number 1 is you don't put out a single where the featured artist is better than you. Even more so when the guy outshining you is a big, goofy caucasian from fucking DUKE, of all places. Getting out-rapped by Mason Plumlee on your own track is like inviting all your friends over for a Madden tournament and then losing to your girlfriend in the first round. It's pretty embarrassing for both of you.
Not the best look Mason. Come on man. You played for Team USA over the summer. You were starting to get a little bit of notoriety. People in the NBA almost forgot you were just another offensively limited, Wonder Bread white boy from Duke and then you go and do this? Thank God the Nets traded him before this song came out. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if Jay-Z got wind of Plumlee name dropping him in this sorry excuse for a song and facilitated the trade himself. You can't just plug Hova when you are rapping alongside the president of the Young Republicans and expect to play for a team of which he has part ownership. This is the rap game Mason, not a country club. Now please see your way out.
Never forget the one, and only, time that Will Rouse was actually entertaining....
