“Odd Christmas” is the third holiday installment from the 2-Cent group. Last year’s spoof, http://www.youtube.com/
The roster of artists continue to grow. The video that began it all, “2-Cent’s Christmas” featured verses from P-Stain [T-Pain] and Greezy F. Baby [Lil’Wayne]
“It started out as a joke, just for fun doing this Christmas video. Like at the end of the year, ya know, type end-it-with-
Unlike many parodies, 2-Cent also brings education into the picture. Just this past year, 2-Cent parodied the song “Every Girl” from Young Money’s album We Are Young Money to encourage elementary and middle school students to read more. 2-Cent is a collaborative effort of creative, frustrated, and comedic twenty-somethings. They all posses the innate ability to convey humor and urgency toward issues that plague not only New Orleans, but also America in general. 2-Cent is a PBS documentary, an SNL skit and an In Living Color spoof all rolled into one.
Equipped with social consciousness, music as the backdrop, and the cold hard facts, they have gained a loyal following, and won coveted awards, including an FYI 2008 NAACP award, and FYI Silverdocs: AFI Discovery Channel Documentary Film Festival Award for documentary filmmaking excellence. Mostly web-based, the show debuted Spring 2008 on air in New Orleans with ABC’s support. This is the first step in proving that 2-Cent is making big strides and praise-worthy “edutainment.”
