Lugano ghetto tour

In what turns out to be a nice tour of Lugano at night, the Metro Stars have produced a music video to accompany the scathing social commentary attempted in their local hit "Lugano Remix."  Unfortunately, the starving Ecuadorians were unavailable for participation.


Some of the more substantive lyrics: 
You will see locals that are too much the same, too rich [while] scattered Ecuadorians are walking around without food. You will see the porn palaces in Paradiso, the tags, the rap....  
This city is a ghost city, suffers from asthma, has the anxiety of people who share the same plasma. Lugano is expert at judging others.
You will see tie-wearing employees throw a whole paycheck away on two grams of joy, this city's like a Trojan horse. 
We take you to the places the tourists don't go. Come take a walk with us. Welcome to the city where we are, tonight we destroy Lugano.

Lugano is so cool. Are these the same guys that advertise with a kitty in a leather jacket? When can we get tickets to their next performance?

No, DJ Garimundo is something totally different.

But tickets should be easily available, if you want to go next time you come.

That is hilarious and reminds me of some of the music videos I used to watch in France. Can we really be led to believe that Lugano is that tragically mezzed up? (They didn't convince me.) If any town will do, I should make a political rap about the crime and social injustice in Shawnee, Oklahoma.

Jenicrob, I would LOVE a expose video rap about Shawnee! Please make one!
