It’s the first day of the last month and it’s getting cold in Orlando! On a completely unrelated note: I sleep so much better when it’s cold out; it’s immensely refreshing.
Today’s Video of the Day -- judging by her view count -- is likely one you’ve already seen. Yes, we’re (conveniently) returning to THE GREAT DEVILMAS BEAT-OFF OF 2011 in order to showcase the second entry into the fourth round battle. No, not from Double B or The Cashew, but from a new contender: Anna M!
(Don’t worry, we’ll work on your rapping name, Anna. Plus, the bar is set pretty low when Rob’s rapping name is “Rob”.)
Not to ruin the illusion or anything, but Anna’s video wasn’t that much a surprise. At least not for me or Rob. It was after I finished writing my lyrics for Beanie Bounced when, while we were chatting (during The Horbawrong Show taping, actually) we had the idea to call Anna out. The reason was simple: she hadn’t posted anything brilliantly creative lately and inspired by our own creative stretches, we wanted to see how she would fair in a rap.
The thing is, while our collective raps have varied in challenges, what ISN’T difficult is starting, and that’s what Anna did rather perfectly here. I don’t think her video is perfect but then I can lay some pretty harsh criticisms against both Rob and my own freshman raps. Point is, now that she’s in the game, just wait to see what she does with her next video.
And she better crank up her sexy-game, cause Beanie Boy be bringing it.
