Brothers Reginald and Vincent Calloway are music producers now, but back in the late 80s and 90s, they both made up the musical duo of hotness called Calloway. Calloway had a couple of albums and a few singles, but it’s their biggest hit “I Wanna Be Rich” that has stayed inside of brains since it came out in 1989. You know you sing that song while scratching off a Scratcher in the grocery store parking lot. “I Wanna Be Rich” was a late-80s musical ode to the greatest thing in life after dick, weed and Joan Collins: MONAAAAAAY! (And yes “love, family and that other shit” is somewhere in there too.)
I completely forgot how perfect the video was until I watched it this morning. This video had ACTING, sepia tones, gorgeous locks, the finest ensembles from Structure, rolled-up jeans and oiled-up man nipples. This looks like the kind of skit the Wayans Brothers would do and I am always here for it. Get that pie in the sky!
And an honorable mention HSOTD award goes to the horny and crazed fan in the audience who tries to hump their asses:
She is actually the normal one. The rest of the people in the audience are the crazies. Because losing your mind over a money-obsessed hot piece with a glorious overgrown mullet is a natural reaction.
