Adorable Gangsta Rap: My Bike by Y.N.RichKids

As a kid, I loved riding my bike. It was my favorite tool for exploration and I took it everywhere (except uphill). So it’s great to see the next generation of riders are just as stoked on their two wheel steeds.

Lyrics after the break.

yo
Frizzy
i’m on MY BIKE

(what up)
lets show ‘em what we do

MY BIKE, MY BIKE, i’m ridin on my bicycle
MY BIKE, MY BIKE, i’m ridin on my bicycle
two wheels with a big ol’ frame, when i roll by chicks callin my name
snapback for a cap with a backpack strapped all around my back, i’m on MY BIKE
swerve, swerve
i’m on MY BIKE
swerve, swerve
i’m on MY BIKE
pop that, pop that, pop that
wheelie
pop that

[Dame Jones]

ok i’m back on MY BIKE i don’t need a car, these two wheels gon’ take me far
ridin down the street showin off my tricks, tellin these haters to get off my pegs
they trippin i dont need a critic, i’ma just rock a snapback or a fitted
with backpack stuffed jam packed full of snacks that’s either hot cheetos or takis, that’s that

[Lady J]
i whip my hair back and forth, when i’m ridin on my bicycle
cute outfit fresh shoes on, it ain’t nikes bro

and i’m with my friends, Y.N.RichKids

*HOOK*
i’m on MY BIKE, MY BIKE, i’m ridin on my bicycle
MY BIKE, MY BIKE, i’m ridin on my bicycle

swerve, swerve
i’m on MY BIKE
swerve, swerve
i’m on MY BIKE
pop that, pop that, pop that

Cool song, uncool the kids are not wearing helmets. I wont be showing my kids this for that reason and that’s too bad cause the song is catchy.

Adrian - 05/19/13 - 6:13pm

I don’t think kids’ perception of riding safely (after being taught by their parents, like I am sure you have) is going to be influenced by showing them this video. Ultimately, kids are going to see other people and kids riding without a helmet out in the world but I am sure they recognize the importance of safety.

Rick - 05/19/13 - 6:20pm

you guys are dorks

Lee - 05/19/13 - 6:23pm

Ripnshread are you serious!!!!!! Its a cool fun video but you wont let your kids see it because they are not wearing helmets. Come on.. Think about what they watch on TV I’m sure its worse.

Great song and video I loved it.

Let go of the racism and hatred Rick.

Rick - 05/19/13 - 9:38pm

Ajax,

dork (d?rk)

n. Slang.
1. a stupid, awkward, or slow-witted person.

Has nothing to do with racism…(deleted).

Both my daughter and myself have been in wrecks where helmets have prevented serious injury or worse, especially mine. I slammed my head on the asphalt so hard it broke my helmet in 9 pcs. So like Rip said, will not promote bike riding without a helmet. If that makes me a dork, I am their King.

Lynn - 05/19/13 - 11:40pm

It’s entertainment, not a bicycling safety/non-safety message. I agree with Lee.

Brian - 05/20/13 - 8:33am

If this were a bunch of white kids rapping about their bikes I’d wager that the word Gangsta would not be in the title of your article. This isn’t gangsta rap, dudes, it’s hip-hop. They make their songs in an after-school class. Careful with your labels. They matter.

Al Boneta - 05/20/13 - 11:37am

The video was cool but their voices grated on my nerves.

Smokestack - 05/20/13 - 12:00pm

Never let yer kids watch any BMX video then.

Max - 05/20/13 - 2:23pm

Watching this video, all I could think was: “What a fun and positive song with a fun and positive video to match! There is nobody in the world who could possibly hate fun enough to dislike this video!”

Then the f*ing helmet brigade shows up.

Saris - 05/20/13 - 2:25pm

@Max

That comment made me laugh out loud.

@Max Thank You

Well said Brian! I am a little annoyed that the term “gangsta” was thrown out there in the title. This song was anything but “gangsta”.

skipdapbaddamarangdoo - 05/21/13 - 1:00pm

Does anyone else here wear helmets on the road just to keep other cyclists from yelling at them? Helmet Brigade is everywhere!

Ajax - 05/22/13 - 10:12pm

This thread – white people telling little black kids how to behave like themselves, ie see pro-helmet supporters.

Kez - 05/25/13 - 3:43pm

How o how is this “gangsta rap”? This is Hip-Hop music…at its finest, in fact. These kids are Emcee’s, not Rappers.

Like someone said before words really do matter.
