“Yo I ride a fixie! My hero’s David Hicks-ie!”

Having lived in Sydney’s Inner West for over two years now, I can say that this quote from local early-middle-aged white boy “rapper” and family man Paul Knight, a.k.a. Pee Kay, captures the essence of the place better than I ever could:

“People are always like, Newtown is so cool, but nobody ever gives props to Enmore,” he said. “They’ve got cool bars but we’ve got the Cat Protection (Society) op shop.”

Pee Kay and his family will be competing in the SydneyVision song contest this evening. Commenters are invited to share their own hipster raps in comments.

    Rightyo, I’ll just place this here then. Originally wrote it for a Catallaxy thread.

    Yo yo yo I’m Gillard and I’m down with the homies
    Whatever Abbott says I know he cannot throw me
    Cos I’m hip to the folks of the inner-city left
    Cos I’m mean with the Greens and my policy is deft
    That Kevvy is a schlomo he’s a pomo fauxmo homo
    Ooh did I say that word it’s offensive what a nono
    He’s a homo – he’s a homo – he’s a homophilous fool.
    Yo yo yo I’m Gillard and I’m down with the homies
    Whatever Abbott says I know he cannot throw me
    Watch my manouvere groovers no you will never guess
    Cos if I am re-elected we won’t have no ETS
    And I rule in the school with my education plan
    And if you want a leader baby I’m yo man
    I’m the wonder from down under I’m the bogan from the west
    I’m strong with the unions I am brilliant I am best
    I’m… over ten seats down yo this might take a minute
    Yo yo yo I’m Gillard and I’m down with the homies
    Whatever Abbott says I know he cannot throw me
    Cos I’m chillax with the Indies and I’m down with Bob Brown
    And I totes rule the greatest minority in town
    Have some funny money Windsor Mr Jenkins take a bow
    While I sink in the Slipper yo Abbot how you like that now?
    You macho patronising chauvinistic sexist pig
    Did someone say Craig Thomson? Yo now I’M Mr Big
    Watch me bust a move kids this is superwhack
    Cos I have just decided we will have a carbon tax
    And I lead the Labor Party it’s the worker’s party – ooh!
    I am cool I am calm I am in control too –

    Stay true, homies.

    Might do it at a pub poetry session soon in Melbourne, that is, if Gillard lasts that long.

    Oh dear. I think my previous comment may have been spam-binned for using two links. My artistic dreams have been shattered by this savage act of corporate censorship!
