Here is my entry for the "Figgy Karaoke" category in the 2011 MOCathalon. Enjoy!
About this creation
Here is that very important link to the MOCathalon homepage: MOCathalon

First off, here’s the video that I have recreated. However, mine contains a few twists and changes. Video

Now, this is the story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute
Just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel Air
In west Philadelphia born and raised
On the playground was where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool
And all shootin some b-ball outside of school
When a couple of guys
Who were up to no good
Startin making trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
She said 'You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air'
I begged and pleaded with her day after day
But she packed my suite case and sent me on my way
She gave me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket.
I put my walkman on and said, 'I might as well kick it'.
First class, yo this is bad
Drinking orange juice out of a champagne glass.
Is this what the people of Bel-Air living like?
Hmmmmm this might be alright.
I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror
If anything I can say is that this cab was rare
But I thought 'Man forget it' - 'Yo home to Bel Air'
I pulled up to the house about seven or eight
And I yelled to the cabbie 'Yo homes smell ya later'
I looked to my kingdom
I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel Air

One of my favorite programmes :) You've done the team proud! By the way, how did the exams go?
The first one was the hardest exam I'd ever done - way to many tables and dodgy worded questions. The second one was better but still horrible. Everyone else found them bad as well so it's not too bad :)

Hahahaha great vignette! I read through it all and imagined Will Smith's voice rappin it out. You did a great job adding visuals to his lines with your lego creations. Keep up the good work!
If you played the video and looked through the pictures then you wouldn't have to imagine his voice :D
