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.
oh my god. this is amazing. Now you must watch the show and then go back and watch this again.
I’ve had the song “Chess is a metaphor for drugs” in my head for days
