Remember When City of Abilene Produced Rap Parody for Recycle Awareness?
The City of Abilene has made some hilarious parody videos over the years. But none are as funny as this video reminding citizens to clean up after themselves. But instead of some boring public service announcement, the city chose to spit out some sick rhymes using Blackstreet and Dr. Dre's song 'No Diggity'. Word.
In 1996, Blackstreet released the song 'No Diggity' which featured legendary rapper and producer Dr. Dre. The song is ranked number 91 on Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Pop Songs. On a personal note, it's definitely a song I like to turn up. Don't hate.
The song featured lyrics like:
Cover much grounds, got game by the pound
Getting paid is her forte
Each and every day, true player way
I can’t get her out of my mind (wow)
I think about the girl all the time (wow)
The City of Abilene came up with its own sick rhymes:
What’s on the ground, flows down where it’s found
Right into our water
Each and every day, the Fort Phantom way
Yeah, it hurts the environment (wow)
and gets in the water we supplying (wow)

I know it's a bit on the cheesy side but I think this is awesome. As I said, it's way better than some boring public service announcement. Kudos to the City of Abilene for thinking outside the box, and laying down some righteous rhymes.
This is not the first time the city has made a parody video. There are actually two other music videos that parodied Jackson Five's "ABC" and Garth Brooks' "Friends in Low Places" which you can see below.

Again, kudos to the city for making these hilarious videos. I would love to see a parody of Metallica or some hard rock band. Maybe get on that, Abilene?
