Awkward White Guy Rap (Vol. IV) – Taylor Swift

There are a few things in life that make me really proud:

(1)  I married a pretty cool lady;

(2)  I make awesome chili; and

(3)  I met Britney Spears.

Most importantly, me and some fellas from Capital City Church turned a TAYLOR SWIFT SONG INTO A RAP JAM!

I hope you like it!  Many thanks to Ron, Phil, and Evan for making my crazy dream come true.  If you think this video will help make someone’s day a little brighter, please share it.  We’re just trying to bring a few extra smiles to this wonderful world.


Here are the previous editions of “Awkward White Guy Raps”:

Biggie’s “Hypnotize”

Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s “Still D.R.E.”

Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” 

Awkward White Guy Rap (Vol. III) – Eminem

If I had quit on my marriage, I would have missed out on a lot of priceless experiences.  Most importantly, I wouldn’t have made a “rap” video with my wife:

As you’ll see in the below video, Amanda’s “flow” is pretty amazing “interesting.”  Straight outta North Dakota. Yo.

Enjoy!  Please don’t hate.  We’re a teacher and a lawyer.  We’re not rappers.  (Duh.)

The first “Awkward White Guy Rap Video” (Biggie’s “Hypnotize”) can be found here and my first feature musical film can be found here (Dr. Dre’s and Snoop Dogg’s “Still D.R.E.”).  Stay tuned for the release of another crazy “rap” jam on Monday.

Awkward White Guy Rap (Vol. II) – Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg

Thank you, Steve Jobs, Dr. Dre, and Snoop Dogg.  You all made this possible:

Me and my boy Phil, a bad dude from L.A. and a small business owner in DC, met a few years ago at a Capital City Church flag football game.  Like all good friends do, we eventually made a rap video.  Unfortunately, both of us are white, have no lyrical skills, and have never used any video editing software.  However, we love rap music.  And Chihuahuas.

I really hope you like our “rap” video.  Even if you don’t, hopefully it will make you thankful that you’re not us.  If you do like it, please share it with any friends, co-workers, family members, or random strangers on the Metro who may need a smile on a Monday morning.  Enjoy!

Nothing is Impossible

Sometimes life can seem helpless.

All your pants have gone from “slim fit” to “don’t fit” after hitting the snooze button eight times each morning this week instead of going to the gym.

Democrats and Republicans. Fighting about everything.

Telling yourself that you’re going to start eating healthy. You eat six cookies thirty minutes later.

Finally, wearing a blue dress shirt in the summer. Bro, we can see those sweat stains.

Despite those seemingly helpless situations, nothing is impossible.  You never know when a miracle might be just around the corner.  It can come in the form of a friend dropping some truth all up in your face, an encouraging phone call or Bible verse, a positive medical report, or even a humble farm boy who becomes a decorated knight and defeats an evil empire.

Do you want further proof that you should never give up hope?

BRITNEY SPEARS WON A GRAMMY AWARD.  No, seriously.  She won a Grammy.

Thus, anything is possible.

For example, this guy…


And these guys…

20130709-182011.jpg…teamed up to make the best song of 2013.  For reals.  I’m talking about “Cruise.”  More specifically, “Cruise (Remix).”  Ain’t nobody got time for the original.

Just like that Chinese and Italian combo restaurant in Arlington (true story; eww), Nelly and Florida Georgia Line making a song together is a really weird combination.  A really weird and really awesome combination.  Sort of like chicken and waffles.

Two country music newcomers teaming up with a rapper from St. Louis to make a ridiculously awesome song?  That’s a miracle.  That’s diversity.  That’s America.  If these insanely different dudes can make something this magical happen, then I don’t want to hear any excuses from Congress about the two sides being too far apart to work together.

So if you’re facing an obstacle that seems insurmountable, a to-do list that is never-ending, or a situation that feels helpless, it’s not.  Nelly and Florida Georgia Line have proven that anything is possible.  111o

Well, almost anything.
