Stop what you’re doing and immediately watch this video of a local rapper from the Webster/Thompson CT area, known as “2$moke,” with his latest hit song, “Money calling.”
That right there ladies and gentlemen, is what happens when Webster meets Connecticut. Blended in with a touch of the Putnam Walmart express. At first I thought this was some sort of Weird Al parody video. Turns out it’s all too real. These kids actually are under the impression that they are some sort of gangstas, and the refer to themselves as the “860 Money Crew.”
Let’s start from the beginning. The kid wakes up to a phone call about gettin that money, which becomes a theme of these deeply thought out artistic masterpiece. Thus the “money calling.” However, you may also notice that he has two things in his twin bed at his mother’s house that he evidently cannot sleep without – his hairbrush and his butcher’s knife:
Yup. Just another day in North Grosvnordale.
Anyway, when he answers the phone he is evidently informed by the GED equivalency graduate on the other end of the line that the money is in fact “calling.” And thus our boy 2$mokes will be there. Feel me?
Then the ballad of I-395 begins. Naturally he cannot start rapping about all the money he be getting without his handy butcher knife, which also doubles as a make believe phone that he uses to talk about getting even more money!!
After repeatedly telling us about his busy day of, 1) waking up, and 2) hearing that money calling, he goes to his boy’s Mom’s house (who obviously is taking a semester off from his rigorous coursework at the Juliard) and the 860 Money Crew engages in some more song and dance about all that money that be calling him.
OK, before we got any further, we just need to address this:
That right there is the face of an Ellis Tech dropout who is never, ever leaving whatever shit-bum town he hails from in the 860.
Soon after the impromptu dance party 2$smokes begins flashing all the dough that be calling him. And where does he spend it all?
At the Velero gas station of course:
Because true ballers always roll deep with Bugles and those delicious pizza flavored Combos.
And I’m not sure what’s in his boy’s hat, but it certainly doesn’t appear to be a job application.
Then it was time for him to pour some blue Mountain Dew out for his homies:
Don’t worry though, he’s not commemorating them because they’re dead. A couple of them were finally kicked out of Mom’s house and now have to get jobs. Tragic.
Then he gets yet another call about………you guessed it – money callin!! And it was calling from a local drug lord’s mansion in Danielson, which is decorated with broken down office supplies, well manicured lawn, and soiled dog houses:
When he goes to drop off the package you see inside the den of the “connect,” which came fully furnished with holes in the wall, Walmart brand baseball bats, and discarded furniture that Bob’s couldn’t sell in their Attic.
But don’t worry, this isn’t all about business. After the transaction is completed the 860 Money Crew goes right back to what they’re best at – dancing, smoking blunts, waving knives around, and answering that phone whenever money be callin:
With all that money he’ll be able to take care of that acne in no time!! Keep keepin it real 860 Money Crew!!
P.S. Their other hit song Minnesota (remix) is hot fire too!!
