Who Wants to be The King of Cheesy Rap?
Greg Reese Wants To Be The King of Cheesy Rap
He Gets The Story and he Raps Too!
Greg Reese is the Son in Mom and Son Citizen Journalists. I, of course, am the Mom. We run the streets together, some people might say. As Mom and Son we seek out news, the arts and interesting events in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky; then we grab our cameras and take to the streets to capture the story.
Greg's video stories have appeared on CNN.com and aired on the CNN network of news stations, as well as a local Fox affiliate. He's been making a name for himself as a local videographer; but recently Greg Reese has been focusing on his sillier, cheesier side.
Greg's Cheesy Rap History
Since he was a teenager, Greg has been interested in Hip hop music, but never the hardcore, scary stuff. He's more of a corny, silly, funny rapper, a la Fresh Prince during his early rapping days. It's a style Greg likes to call
"Cheesy." He credits Fresh Prince, Will Smith, with being his cheesy inspiration after a chance meeting with the star in an elevator.
He's been gaining online fans with his Cheesy new rap music for a while; and now he wants to be the King of Cheesy Rap. Who else would want that title anyway?
Rapping for Greg is nothing new
As a teenager and young adult, he was involved in talent shows and public performances at local events. At 17 he was hired by the local utility company to do a Hip-Hop music public service video that explained to young children where electricity came from.
aired the Ba-Rock Song, an Obama rap Greg created during the 2008 presidential campaign, they renamed it the
CNN Obama Rap. They also posted his Palin, McCain and Joe Biden Raps on CNN.COM. Of course his political raps were'nt quite as cheesy as the stuff he's doing now, but they were cheesy enough.
