As you know, the campaign to end fake rap is needed more badly than ever before. Not only have the Ed McMahon advertisements for FreeCreditReport emerged as a major new threat to our desire to see this embarrassing trend put to rest, but even just yesterday an ad for Holiday Inn Express featuring fake rap was FEATURED ON THE FRONT PAGE OF YOUTUBE. We cannot feel comfortable or at ease that our desperate plea is being heard, and must work harder than ever if we’re going to convince people to cut it out, seriously, stop.

That being said, I would like to pose an amendment to the campaign, which is the open and enthusiastic acceptance of any fake rap performed by children. Because this video of some 7th graders rapping about the right to vote to the tune of T.I.’s “Whatever You Like” in a hotel ballroom is one of the best things I’ve seen in ever.

It helps that these kids can actually rap. So good.

    What about Bob Barr, Cynthia McKinney and Ralph Nader? These kids have no respect for third parties.
