Mainstream Dropout – Pho Saigon (Prod. DWN North) [Video]

Toronto, ON – T-Dot’s own Mainstream Dropout duo just launched new visuals for their track entitled “Pho Saigon” (which was produced by DWN North). MD consists of rappers Lamaj Sapphire and Dav Stephens (formerly of the hardcore band, Abandon all Ships). This track pokes fun at some of the cliches the MD duo sees within hip-hop. Like drinking, and getting lifted on drugs, and encountering female genitalia.

I’m going to go out-on-a-limb here and say this is the closest thing to hipster hip-hop I’ve encountered lately. I mean, the dudes even call themselves Mainstream Dropout (insert eye-roll here). But what’s neat about MD is that they really don’t care about the reception of their tuneage. Which also means that they pull off an excellent first verse (bars courtesy of Dav) about all things Pixar, including phallic use of the name “Woody” and a comparison between A Bug’s Life and the thug’s life. Check out the video below.
