Unlike Jay-Z, rapper Alex Warren doesn’t get to reference world famous landmarks because he lives in Newport, Wales. Warren’s tongue-in-cheek version of Empire State of Mind talks about the fantastic sights of his hometown including the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency and the plentiful supply of designated parking zones.
The parody has been viewed over 300,000 times since its release on July 20th. Check out Newport (Ymerodraeth State of Mind) below. There are subtitles in case you don’t fully comprehend the Welsh accent.
BONUS: On a more local tip, Delidave and Eracode rap humourously about Cape Town life in a spoof of one of NWA’s most well known songs. You’ll find Straight Outta Kloof Street after the jump.
