Well, one thing we can tell you about smoking-hot Cambridge rapper SAM ADAMS -- unlike John Mayer, his dick is not a white supremacist. In this behind-the-scenes clip from the set of his "Driving Me Crazy" video, he gets jumped by a black girl in the bathroom and cat-fought over by blondes. It helps that the the video -- concept: the quintessential "New England college experience" -- was shot in LA.
Further debunking the widespread rumor that overnight sensation SAM ADAMS inflated his chart-topping iTunes numbers by purchasing huge quantities his own digital EP, BILLBOARD MAGAZINE reported last week that, according to SoundScan, Adams' sales were evenly distributed throughout the country, concluding "So far, there isn't any evidence to support the blog-fueled allegations."
We had to step away from the Bean for a minute, but that didn't mean we intended to miss the mayhem when Boston's Boy hit Harpers Ferry for his first live performance since shocking the world by debuting at the top of the iTunes hip-hop charts and busting headlong into the Billboard Hot 100. Our videographer Pat Howley was stage-right for the whole thing.
It's shaping up as the biggest who-dat local-music story since, well, Godsmack. Unsigned white Boston rapper SAM ADAMS -- unheralded by land and by sea, by British or by American press -- shocked the industry last week by debuting at the top of the national iTunes download charts. Record-label execs went bananas, rumors spread that the kid had somehow gamed the system, and flame wars broke out on the blogs.
