We blogged about Hot Dollar's Beach Boys-sampling "I Luv Tha Streetz" a year ago, and despite the best efforts of Def Jam's promo department to sell us on the relevance of Hot Dollar's Mississippi-via-Compton trap mumble (including a snazzy vacuum-packed t-shirt shaped like a brick of singles - keep making it rain in our mailroom, dudes!), young HD hasn't made a reappearance in these virtual pages ever since. Fortunately, linking his new video not only fulfills our Hot Dollar post quota until 2009, but also gives us an excuse (albeit a real stretch) to post a YouTube of "Mouthful Of Sores" from Mr Show. Happy Brian Wilson sacrilege day! But back on topic—how insane does Guerilla Black look in the "I Luv Tha Streetz" intro? Leapin lizards! They wanted to give him the lead in the Biggie movie?!?! Good thing it went to the guy who got shot in the ass.
