The Hood Internet


It’s a testament to the Hood Internet’s mash-up savvy that the meme is rarely attributed to the duo. More often, they earn a more conventional and more simply fun descriptor: they party. And that’s despite members ABX and STV SLV’s website, the center line of which is a perpetual stream of so-and-so’s versus so-and-so’s. (The current bomb track has Usher popping off over the roar and slink of Sleigh Bells’ “Kids.”) These Chicago dudes give good party, a skill they understand leaves a more lasting impression than the ability to recognize when the confluence of one guy’s vocal over some other band’s banging might get a laugh out of a few Internet randoms for a few seconds. This is real life; show up and dance.
