Hummus: The Rap (SLYP) Annoying ironic hipster? Earnest hummus lover? Who cares, hummus deserves phat beats.

I got my hummus from the supermarket /
Don't be a Weenie /
Real hummus in your stomach /
It requires tahini!

I'm down with V.E.G. like every last Hindi,
Baba Ganoush is in the house!

Deserves phat pickled beets?

It's just a funny rap video. Why must everything even remotely creative done by a young or youngish person be labeled as possible hipster handiwork?
Anyway, I love hummus.

I stumbled across GoRemy a while back on some forgotten YouTube search query. I'm a big fan of McDonald's: The Rap and Hey There Khalilah.

I'm just so confused these days about if I'm allowed to appreciate something ironically or authentically. I pledge to never again eat hummus in a trucker hat and chunky glasses.

This guy can't rap for shit. But I'll give him credit for the editing and for "Dip it in all the way/Put that stick in my head/Like I'm Phineas Gage."

Fun little ditty. I'd dip my pita in it.

Is this funded by O'riley somehow?

It's no "Punch 'em in the dick", that's for sure.

Nice tune, I found myself humming along with it.

I can see this guy's agent saying, "No, you ninny, you were supposed to build your gangsta cred by singing about your HUMMER!"

Here is a Hummus rap from about 15 years ago.. The lyrics are in Hebrew (unfortunately, because they are pretty funny), with strong Jamaican accent

"No, you ninny, you were supposed to build your gangsta cred by singing about your HUMMER!"

But the plural of HUMMER is HUMMUS.

I love me some M.C. Hummus.

My my my the hunger hits me so hard,
But all that's in the cupboard is crackers and lard
So I'm off to the D-E-L-I
For some home-made hummus that I'll eat for tea
It feels good when you know you've scored,
Those mashed up chickpeas that were sent by the Lord
It's a food that's great, and it's known as such,
Hummus is a food, you can't touch

I told you humboy (You can't touch this)
Yeah, that's what we're eating and you know (You can't touch this)
Look at my plate, man (You can't touch this)
Yo, let me spread the funky pita (You can't touch this)

Fresh new chickpeas -- advance,
Mix tahini, lemon juice and garlic, I go in a trance,
So move, move that blender,
A little olive oil's gonna make it tender,
While it's grinding, everything into a paste,
Pump a little bit, cause you know how it will taste,
Like that, like that,
Hummus is a mission like Scotty smoking crack,
Everybody knows that it's too much,
And hummus is a food, you can't touch

Yo, I told you (You can't touch this)
Why you staring at my plate (You can't touch this)
Yo, smell the smell. Chef school is in, sucka (You can't touch this)

Break it down. Stop! It's Hummus Time!
