It's never explained where he and Mini-Me got the costumes, the props or the scantily-clad women for the 'video', or where they went after the end of the track

The sub-genre gets a lot of heat because it's usually [[WolverinePublicity the only type of rap]] [[ItsPopularNowItSucks that seems to get played on the radio]] or [[MagazineDecay covered in magazines]], leaving people to believe that rap has gotten too commercial, and that acts tend to be less topical and reliant on novel lyrical flow. In this sense, it can be seen as rap's analogue to the unapologetically commercial and hedonistic HairMetal that dominated the [[HeavyMetal metal]] scene (and rock music in general) in TheEighties, and the antithesis to the old-school hip-hop that came out of that era. The names are even similar -- one of the most common alternative names for hair metal (and which happens to be the one in use at TheOtherWiki) is "glam metal". There is some overlap with GangstaRap, as many of these artists have a dark side. One doesn't always indicate the other, however.
