SMH:

New Orleans rapper, Mr. Ghetto, has gained local and national attention for the ‘New Orleans Bounce’ video filmed here in the Crescent City. Speaking through his manager, he defends himself and the video that’s getting mixed reactions. It is a video about a guy getting the girl, a video produced around Wal-Mart, and a video that quickly became an internet sensation when it was posted on YouTube just two weeks ago. “I don’t think they’re all necessarily fans,” Rachel Lewis said.

“A lot of people like it, a lot of people don’t,” entertainment manager Travis Lyons said. Soon after the video garnered attention, the song hit local airways.

“As soon as we played it, the power lines blew up and folks were calling and going crazy for it. We’ve had a constant request fro it pretty much ever since,” radio DJ Mike Swift said. We showed the video to Glenn Fields. Right away, he identified the parts he liked.

“The dancers they nice but the kids,” Fields said. But he’s worried about the impact the video might have on young children. Fields said, “They looking at Wal-Mart as a grocery store and going to buy groceries and toys and everything, but if they see that video they’re going to look at Wal-Mart like its distributing sex or something, you know.”

Wal-Mart spokesman Lorenzo Lopez said, “The filming of the video was not authorized and we don’t condone it. We just don’t think it’s an appropriate activity in our stores.”

Which begs the question, how did rapper Mr. Ghetto pull it off? We turned to his manager Travis Lyons for answers. WGNO News Reporter Darian Trotter asked, “Was it filmed during business hours, before or after? I really don’t want to get into that part of it; I just want to say it’s a blessing that happened for the kid,” Lyons replied. “It got him notoriety around the world I don’t want to dig that deep into it.” “But it’s not the music that some women find offensive, rather it is the lyrics and what the dancers are doing with their shopping carts,” Trotter said.

We showed it to Alexis Harris and Rachel Lewis. “It’s degrading to women,” Lewis said. “The ladies are disrespecting themselves by shaking on the camera in a store, where people shop,” Harris said.

Trotter asked Lyons , “So to those women who say this video is offensive and objectifies women you say what? I say they can’t move that fast that’s why they feel that way, you know, that’s how I feel my personal opinion you know,” Lyons jokingly replied.

But he did offer a more serious defense. “This is something you can cut on your TV right now and see women shaking,” said Lyons . Wal-Mart managers at the Tchoupitoulas location confirm part of the video was filmed in the store’s parking lot.

      field negros dont change. they never had any respect for themselves , and they never will.

    • NoneOfYours

      I do agree!!!

  • bri

    It’s not about black or white. It’s about self-respect. Nothing is left to the imagination anymore and as long as they are getting attention from it then why stop?

  • white male

    Their azz is so round and firm. I could crack an egg on their backsides.

  • http://hotmail Islandbaby

    Black folks are lost, you just can’t save them anymore! I hope I live to see the day when blk wonen realized there’s more to them than their a$$, and gain some self- respect. Just sad on all level!

  • StuckInDaMatrix

    @spicycreole I’m sorry you feel that way hun! I admit that I too am becoming disinfranchised with Black Americans and our supposed “culture”. And you know its only going to get more blatant and worse before it gets better.

  • C Breezy

    I hate to say it but i like ghetto Booty lol

  • Jada1

    I hate going in Wal-Mart sometimes because of women and men like that,but hey when you’re broke,Wal-Mart (early in the morning,before 9am,on the better side of town) is your best friend!

    We got to do better people!
    I know its sad when I don’t particularly like going around certain types of people in my own black community!
    Also, these are the types of people that make things hard for the rest of us. Unfortunately,people stereotype,thats just the way of the world,and women/men like that make many of us look bad. I know some of you may not want to believe it,but those are the ones who hold us back…

    • suga

      Yeah, I feel you 100% on that. I too hate Wal-Mart and have to go early in the morning. Unfortunately, where I live, even the suburban Wa-Marts have the hood rats because they usually travel in packs by mid-afternoon. Very sad indeed.

  • SpuddyInNewOrleans

    Well, I know what Walmart I’m not going to shop in any more!!! I’m gonna stick with the one’s on the Westbank.

    • Sanriobaby =^.^=

      Another reason why I DON’T ever shop at Walmart. With that said, Walmart should do an internal investigation should not only fire the employees that allowed this to be filmed in thier store but sue that “rapper”, his dancers, the manager, and anyone else attached to this for not getting permission to film from corporate, not that they were ever gonna get it in the first place but there are laws set up for this very reason.

  • Daniel

    I can no longer defend a people, race and culture that tolerates this crap in their family and community. I am not a color a race, just a man…a man that lives in a way to identify himself as ONLY a child of God amongst a sea of lost children.

    • BIG REGG***MONEY TALKS

      @CO-SIGN BINGO THIS GUY DANIEL SOUNDS MOIST!!!!!!!

  • Uhh Yeah Ok™

    Some people take it way overboard with the “I’m ashamed to be black” and “we are doomed” comments.

    It’s business and he got the publicity he wanted, so did Wally world. Best advertising is word of mouth and this guy started an ongoing conversation for them. With Wally Worlds shady international corporate politics they have no room to talk.

    On the other side, artists do you see how easy it is for you now? Just produce new content and get out there (hopefully about something).

      HELLO. MY NAME IS MR. MAKE YA FEELGOOD AND I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE.

  • kemsey

    Lived in NO for a year and to them Walmart is the spot.

    • Me

      Wal Mart is nothing but “the spot” to get your groceries from. gtfoh talking about Wal Mart is the spot. If you lived in New Orleans for a year and you think Wal Mart is the spot, you must be LAME as a mofo.

  • hgbangs

    @ spicycreole , now you know how i feel about whites

  • Me

    Only in New Orleans. I love my city but the ignorance level here is astronomical. I grew up listening to dudes rap about doing dope, selling dope, killing people and degrading women. If you ride down the street playing this you will see females from4 to 44 shaking their behinds to this. The little girls can out shake the grown wome. I call ’em little strippers in training.

  • Me

    If you go to a club down here like The Duck Off they will play booty shake(bounce) music all night and the females will be face down a$$ up all night.

  • Di

    And I thought the Wheelchair Dance wuz the worst it could get.BUT NO here comes Wally World.Why Why Why

  • Me

    but don’t just judge N.O. based on this and Baby and Wayne. Please don’t. Jazz is still alive and well and we have plenty talented REAL musicians down here. We got some lyricists down here too but the demand for bounce music is much higher than any other genre down here for some reason.
