Musical Montage: Rappin Rodney


If you want proof that no one was immune to the novelty rap song craze of the 80’s and early 90’s, look no further than Rappin Rodney from legendary comic, Rodney Dangerfield.  To his credit though, Rodney isn’t so much rapping as just delivering some of his greatest bits over a beat while a trio of backup singers chant “No Respect” and then sing the chorus.  The music video (yes, there was a music video) finds Rodney on the stand in a court room and, I guess, trying to win the jury’s sympathy by describing how terrible his life has been.  You can check out this curiosity from a simpler time below.
