African American male rappers have long endorsed products in commercials. Google “A Brief History of Rappers in Soda Commercials” and “20 Best Rap Commercials of All Time.” There’s nothing inherently problematic aesthetically, creatively, or politically about non-black rapping. I am curious about the television ads and viral YouTube videos that use hip-hop solely to entertain primarily through a comedic end. Such creations beg critical exploration.
