John O’s Harlem Shake Down – Rapper responds to the ‘Harlem Shake’

Screen Shot 2013-02-21 at 9.54.10 AM

Harlem born and raised rapper/actor John O responds in his own blunt words to the new ‘Harlem Shake’ viral craze.  Keeping it real he says “The song sucks, the video sucks and as a person from Harlem I’m a little bit offended by this because people from all around the world think that’s how you do the Harlem Shake, and it’s not.”

I disagree with him on the song I think Baauer’s track is a good electronic, dubstep track that definitely got peoples attention.  I also think some of the ‘Harlem Shake 2013′ videos out there are funny (See our previous post – Harlem Shake Tutorial.)  

Every day there are more videos popping up on YouTube from all around the globe.  There have been a lot of people reacting in Harlem  lately as you may have seen in this video Harlem Reacts to ‘Harlem Shake’ Videos where a variety of Harlem locals are interviewed on 125th Street.  This video was made by Chris McGuire and went out to all the bloggers and NY media 2 days ago and already has 2,473,925 views and counting.  

That being said, John says what most of us and probably everybody in Harlem are thinking in his video response to the Harlem Shake.

keeping it 100 percent with John O, check out his video response here.                                  THE HARLEM SHAKE DOWN CLICK ON THIS LINK
