The hip-hop spokeskids for Houston’s transportation agency are out with their second CD — though, as Houston Press music editor Chris Gray notes, it appears that in at least one video by the Transit Boyz, the rapping progeny of Metro employees have been replaced by puppets. Puppets modeled after the Beastie Boys. A few other references are thrown in too: “We like big buses and we cannot lie.” Yes, they really did just say that.
Lyrics here. And a more directly promotional, non-puppeted effort:
- Metro’s Rapping Puppets Make Sweet Beastie Boys Tribute [Rocks Off]
- Transit Boyz Are Back Write On Metro]
