Dirk Nowitzki, Monta Ellis, Chandler Parsons go old school, form new ‘Run-DMC’ (vid)


No strangers to hilarious, irreverent videos, the Dallas Mavericks once again have struck gold (records), this time courtesy of Dirk Nowitzki, Monta Ellis and Chandler Parsons kicking it old school by busting out a flat-out brilliant ode to some of the godfathers of rap, Run D.M.C.

Get it? Run-D.M.C.? Dirk, Monta, Chandler? They’re the new Run DMC, kinda like the old Run-D.M.C., you see, but, you know, different.

Ahhh yeahhh…

Here’s the terrific trio emulating the rap gods while dropping their debut track, “Can’t Be Stopped.”

Can’t be stopped, indeed.

Question: Where is the shot of the guys rocking Adidas Superstar kicks with no laces and the tongues sticking out? The absence of that nod to the original Run-D.M.C. probably is due to the guys’ respective sneaker deals.

Enough about that, who knew Dirk could handle the mic with such skill? Wait … oh yeah…

Again, ahhh yeahhh… What can’t that German do?

Actually, all three Mavs perform admirably. I expect new tracks to pop up throughout the season. That’d be dope.
