The Wire: The Musical

This is now the greatest thing I’ve ever seen on the internet.

HBO’s gritty drama The Wire was just made to be a musical. Thank god Michael Kenneth Williams aka Omar Little agreed to do this video. In fact they got a slew of the show’s original stars, and when necessary replaced others with stand-ins so similar it requires a double take.  Stringer Bell is particularly well served.

David Simon most definitely would love this.
