Rapper Turns Craigslist Classified Ads into a Song – and It Actually Sounds Good (VIDEO)
St. Louis-based performer Mac Lethal uses real-life Craigslist classifieds as inspiration
Have you recently placed an ad on Craigslist? Perhaps in search of a long-term relationship? Or maybe to sell your 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt?
Even if you didn’t, you should check out a new YouTube clip by rapper Mac Lethal, who takes actual Craigslist classified ads from all over the country and then incorporates them into a rap – the photos you post, your contact email, everything. It’s a handy way to get the word out about whatever you’re selling.
In case you think this rapper looks familiar, you may remember him as the “pancake rapper” from a 2011 viral video or from various subsequent video efforts where he shows off his admirably fast rapping skills. (Heads up: NSFW language in both of those videos.) He’s basically the Micro Machines guy of the rap world.
And in case you think your personal ad, rental listing, or other Craigslist posting could benefit from a signal boost, you can email Mac Lethal directly and ask him to use it in a future effort. But be forewarned: Mac Lethal will call you out if he suspects you’re catfishing.
