Drake's "Headlines" Gets The Parody Treatment
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Affion Crockett is just blowing more air into Drake's already inflated ego.
Taking a page from Weird Al's book, comedian Affion Crockett has recently released a parody of Drizzy's "Headlines" aptly re-titled "Headvines". "Headvines" chronicles the young rap Prince's struggle with thick eyebrows. Not only is "Headvines" hilarious and incredibly accurate, but it's just SO WELL DONE. Crockett even uses the exact same rhyme scheme in his verses as Drake does in "Headlines":
I had someone tell me I fell off, oh I needed that / And they want to see me pick back up, well, where'd I leave it at / I know I exaggerated things now I got it like that / Tuck my napkin in my shirt, because I'm just mobbing like that / You know good and well that you don't want a problem like that / You gone make someone around me catch a body like that / No, don't do it, please don't do it / Because one of us goes in, and we all go through it And Drizzy got the money, so Drizzy gone pay it / Those my brothers I ain't even got to say it / That's just something they know / They know, they know, they know
I had someone tell me one fell off oh, I needed that / And they just wanna see me pick it up, where'd I leave it at / I know I exaggerate my brows but I got it like that / I get 'em braided up 'cause they be growing like that / You know good and well that I could shave 'em off and make tracks / When I struggle with my rhymes they be helping Drake rap / Oh, comb through it, please comb through it / 'Cause Drizzy look funny, and Drizzy gon' say it / Those my eyebrows and I don't need you to say it / That's the way that they grow / They grow, they grow, they grow
So. Amazing. We aren't even gonna front like this didn't make us laugh like little schoolgirls. Especially when he talks about one of his eyebrows actually falling off. Make sure to watch it the whole way through to hear Crockett wax poetic on other Drakisms like his fantastic choice in sweaters and the public's confusion with his mixed race ethnicity. Somebody call SNL. This guy's a genius.
