1990S - Snow Big Deal by jbwarner86 1990S - Snow Big Deal by jbwarner86

In case you were wondering why white Canadian reggae rap isn't a more prominent genre, here's your explanation. When I originally conceived this idea, I was gonna make it a Vince and Kendra strip, with Vince being ticked off that a white rapper has the #1 song in America and Kendra playing devil's advocate about mixing influences and all that stuff. But then I thought "Y'know what, as a white guy myself, I don't know if I feel comfortable speaking on behalf of the African-American community on issues of racial double standards." Because really, wouldn't that just kind of prove the point even further? So I illustrated my conundrum literally by having Joel, Aaron, and Steve do the talking, then reaching the same realization themselves. The struggle continues.

I remember looking through your VERY early "Maxwell Silver Hammer" strips and having Joel and Aaron trying to listen to this song. It seemed to be planned as originally as a strip arc, too.

If you do research on the issues from perspectives of African Americans and convey that through the characters, it would be fine, I think.

Jim Carrey did a parody of Snow's video.

You watch Todd In The Shadows' video about Snow? According to that he was kinda appropriating culture he grew up around, but at least he grew up around it, which is more than you can say for Mr. Van Winkle.

Part of the problem was that Vanilla Ice was seen as artsy, and people were just too confused to stop it from spreading past it's bounderies in show blocks like Life on Venus Avenue. That and payola.
