Riley Was Here x Top 5 Boondocks Episodes
“No one told you to paint over my house ’cause you want to make a point. This ain’t Beat Street.”
Got to write a Top 5 episodes of The Boondocks post over at The BVX. But my favorite moment from the cartoon is probably from the “Riley Was Here” episode when a graf writing Riley Freeman and his art teacher, a doppelgänger of the late painter Bob Ross, get chased by cops while Tom Scott’s cover of Jefferson Airplane’s “Today” plays in the background. It’s the same song Pete Rock flipped for “They Reminisce of Over You (T.R.O.Y.).” Also used by Black Sheep for “La Menage” (didn’t even know there was a video for its remix!) as Jerry Barrow of Nod Factor fame always likes to point out.
