We know it’s no big thing when a You Tube video gets 30,000 views. Andy Samberg could fart on an otter’s face and film it on his iPhone and that shit would break a milli by lunch. But when it’s the Southern Mothers, two white boys from the least white states in the union (Michigan and GA) rapping for five minutes straight about a Danish installation artist? There’s no reason that should get more than 5,000 hits from casually curious Daily Intelligencers and Gothamists.
But at 30,000 views, the Southern Mothers’ ‘Olafur Eliasson’ is now the most viewed You Tube video related to the artist. Months after his waterfalls have come down around New York, Olafur Eliasson, the A Millie remix, still generates views as well as comments like:
whitbois killed dis shit
And our personal favorite, as well as the first comment dropped:
These niggaz is nice
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Happy 30 K.

Dearly beloved, we gather here to say our goodbyes. The “A Milie” beat is dead. The Southern Mothers have murdered it.
New York Mag, Gothamist and Urban 411 can’t all be wrong. “Olafur Eliasson” by the Southern Mothers in conjunction with Modern Jackass Magasin is the hottest track of the Fummer/Sall. You watched the vid, now download the track, pay $85 to fill up the tank in your Maxima and bump the complexest syntax since Dennis Miller read aloud from Foucault’s History of Sexuality Volume 1.
No car ’cause you’ve gone green? No worries. Nothing goes better with that Bianchi than ear buds blasting this eulogoogly to Asher Roth. Who dat? Eggsackly.

As seen on NY Mag’s Daily Intel: Finally, Someone Made a Rap Video About Olafur Eliasson’s Waterfalls.
So there are these waterfalls in New York, right? They’re part of some, like, public arts installation or something. They were put on by this guy Olafur Eliasson. Lil Wayne wanted to rhyme about him in his rap for the track A Milli. He didn’t, though. Fortunately, someone did. They’re called the Southern Mothers. And they’re brought to you by Modern Jackass. Reddit, homebro. Especially if you’re in a cubicle. Then turn, smile, shift and repeat. Yadiggity?
