Counting Bodies (Um, Literally) in the New Video For Fabolous's "Body Ya"
Following up on the genius conceit of Fabolous and DJ Drama's There Is No Competition 2: The Funeral Service, which is basically that Fab kills rappers, and Drama is his undertaker--"Fab got the morgue, and I got the mortuary!" (?!)--comes the video for the mixtape's de facto single, "Body Ya." The concept? Fab has a serious case bodyya (it sounds realer if you say it in thick Indian accent, as his doctor does in the video), and anyone who comes into contact with him will drop dead. So what does Loso do? Take a long walk, of course. In the spirit of April Fools, we played a prank on ourselves and our valuable time and chronicled every body in the resulting death spree. Care to wager on the total?
Meet your undertaker: Fabolous. First victims? Two skaters. The carnage was awful. Jogging? Huge mistake. Terrible idea for a first date. Video vixens are not immune. See? No idea about these two dudes. They were on their way to school maybe? This actor definitely got the worst of it. Lost count at this point. 10 bodies maybe? Let's take a moment to admire the demographic diversity of people Fabolous kills in this video. Pastry down! Think that couple in the back got killed like a minute ago. But the continuity is not ideal. Who hasn't wanted to kill one of those guys who try and hand you their mixtapes? Bouncer. Another fantasy target. Fabolous: helping cure unemployment, two dead guys at a time. No idea. Did you have to go to a public park Fab?
