On February 27th, 2017, the NoCro News dropped some serious fire. Totally unexpectedly. This is a small, obscure Youtube channel that posts the daily NoCro News clips and usually gets a few dozen views, but on this fateful day, anyone who watched it was in for a surprise.
If you want to talk about underground, this is underground. Forget about digging in the crates, you’ll never find anything like this in the record shop. Digging through the tubes is going to become the new thing, where people are watching random old Youtube videos in hopes of the off-chance that an up-and-coming MC decided to drop a few verses in the middle of nowhere.
When it comes to their daily news videos, North Crowley High School isn't playing around. So, why did this particular video get over 1,000 views when they usually get about 50?
The infamous February 27th clip begins with the pledge of allegiance just like any other day, then the joke of the day, and the quote of the day. Typical stuff... But then things get lit.
Mr. Ford's audio/video production class is home to a bunch of super creative people, and they put together this rap video and absolutely kill it.
"Mr. Ford gives us the tools and from there we can build."
This channel has been putting out videos for months, every day, with the latest comings and goings from the school, but the one with the killer rap right in the middle is by far the most popular. What I love more than anything is this is a good-natured, unified, group of young adults with healthy expectations and standards concerning hard work, artistic quality, and being positive.
Nothing has to be or needs to be boring. Everyone needs to harness the NoCro that lies deep within us all, waiting to straight murk a beat.
