par·o·dy   [par-uh-dee] noun,plural-dies, verb,-died, -dy·ing. –noun 1. a humorous or satirical imitation of a serious piece of literature

Parody. Let's sound it out now. Par-uh-dee. Do we all understand what this means? I mention this only because the "Beamer, Benz, or Bentley" remix furor on 2 Dope Boyz has gone on far too long. About three weeks ago, Joell Ortiz's par-uh-dee video of the ubiquitous Lloyd Banks single ("Nissan Honda Chevy") dropped, exactly two days before "Beamer". And apparently people thought Joell was trying to steal Lloyd's thunder, except it was a joke. And I quote:

Is this shit even allowed?!
How the hell do they get a vid out before Banks.
Basically hijacked his single and ran with it.
If I were Banks, I’d sue.

Thank you for your insightful comment, Sir ThuslaBOOM. Your name suggests you come from noble blood, but you must put your pride aside. If megastars Lloyd Banks and Juelz Santana can't get a video out in a timely fashion, that's their fault. Should Joell wait to release it? Silliness in hip-hop is a rare commodity, and so it is like a spring flower – it must be nurtured or else it will die. So, Sir ThuslaBOOM, rest your knightly countenance from the frowns that must be permanently etched in your visage, and enjoy "Nissan" for what it is – a silly video with pretty hot rhymes. For the rest of you:
