Stop looking at my moms!

Apparently it’s a young one known as the Astronomical Kid.  It’s pretty funny, and actually seems to have taken quite a bit of effort.  His personal website was overwhelemed, so I couldn’t access it.  But it seems like this kid is blowing up.

 

The New York Daily News ran a story on him, where he talks about his inspiration for the track.

"I didn’t like the way people were staring at my mother when I walked down the street. It was very offending," the Bedford-Stuyvesant teen said.

"Every kid goes through that; every mother goes through that.

"Women, they are not pieces of meat. They are human beings. They should be respected," he added. "Men should know better."

Brian, a 5-foot-3 high school freshman, said he was infuriated by drooling men hollering, "Yo, Ma! What’s good, Ma?" at his mother on the street.

"I decided instead of being violent, and going about it the wrong way, I’d put it on a record," he said. "It’s a track everyone can relate to. I don’t like people lookin’ at my moms. I’m pretty sure nobody likes it."

At least the kid’s heart is in the right place.  And remember how was I saying the kid is blowing up? Turns out he’s opening for Fabolous soon.
