I never learned how to Crank That Souljah Boy, or the Batman. I looked almost as bad as Tom Cruise when I tried to do the Yung Joc dance. And I'm cool with this. I haven't been up to date on dances since I was in college nearly 20 years ago. So you have to understand the excitement I felt when I saw this video "New Era" by The Retro Kidz.
The rap group has created an authentic '90s hip-hop video. They rap over a sample of Snap's "The Power," and dress, dance and rhyme like Kid N Play, Big Daddy Kane and Redhead Kingpin.
Their nostalgic vibe is what sold BroBot Entertainment head Aamek Richards, who signed them to this indie.
Just watching the "New Era" video made me start surfing for videos from some of The Retro Kidz' obvious inspirations. Take a look some of these classic clips and compare.
