Rapping farmers: One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight....

The guys from the first link are local to my area, and have made the front page of the local paper 3 days in a row because of that music video. I still can't bring myself to watch the whole thing.

You know, as it was starting, before the rapping came in, I was thinking, "please let the flow not be wack." And then it was hella wack but somehow so damn charming I listened to the whole thing with a big-ass grin.

This is just as cringe-worthy as I expected.

Not that it's bad, per se. But it could have been improved with a bouncing tractor (I don't know the technical term, sorry) and some ghost-riding of the whip. Actual whip not needed, but nice.

So, I guess this is their pitch for a reality TV series and/or wives?

tofupop: You should see the Mein Block parody by Rainer von Vielen, if you don't know it already...

Zach Galifianakis / Kanye West did my favorite farming rap.

What is up with the cow necklaces in the UK one (#6)? Radio tracking devices?

If you are willing to go beyond English, there's an awful lot of campesino rap. Another.

And of course there's the classic John Leguizamo hardcore campesino rap in Collateral Damage.

Their 4-H meetings must be off the chain.

Possible options: activity tracking, RFID identification, rumination monitoring, estrus detection. These might be SCR Heatime H-Tags.

When Nas said "hip-hop belongs to all of us now", perhaps this is what he meant.

Although, honestly, I'd be fine if Nas grandfathered in some exceptions for farmers. They are not exactly spitting dope rhymes.

Alternate strategy: buy some talented hip hop artists some land.

Crank that Farmer Boy (four) was the best, but Yeo Valley Advert (six) was an ok runner up. The rest were bad. And one or two of those were really really bad. I just always marvel at how so many people think it is easy to rap, and every single day there is more than ample audio and video evidence that it is hard.
