Video of the Day: Fly Like Ferris Bueller With "Richie Cunning's Day Off"
We're big fans of Richie Cunning here at SF Weekly. (Anyone who comes up with the tagline "the Zen Buddha of the N Judah" is off to a good start in our book). But when Richie suggests avoiding the office to "clean my house, bake a cake, and play golf," while running around with colorful local characters and getting bear hugs from a furry b-boy, we want to call in sick too.
"Richie Cunning's Day Off" is a clever riff off Ferris Bueller's Day Off. That flick's classic soundtrack is sampled throughout the track as the San Francisco emcee skips work "for other rapper's sake." The bigger question, of course, is he using his delinquent day wisely? You tell us.
