This Yuppie Rap Video From 1989 Is Fantastic And Needs To Be Discussed

It’s usually a good sign when some dude hits a backflip in his beachfront condo within the first 10 seconds of a music video. It’s not make or break, but it’s something I look for. From there, what I want is simple: 6-figure guys, boom boxes on shoulders, and power ties. I don’t think that’s asking too much.

So allow me to present to you what may be the most electrifying video in entertainment history.

Dove bars? Check. Saab convertible equipped with a power car phone? You know it. Dudes closing deals? Obviously. This is how I choose to believe the eighties went down.

This is Cash Money Records before there was a Cash Money Records. Just pretend the last 40 seconds didn’t happen, and you’ve got vintage late-eighties balling. Oh, and is there any doubt that Christian Bale took inspiration from this to become Pat Bateman? This is West Coast American Psycho with less gore and no Phil Collins.

Pass me an Evian.
