Outside of reality TV, the internet (YouTube, specifically) has made stars out of everyday people. Some get their 15 minutes and fizzle out while others like the band Karmin have become legit stars after posting several YouTube videos featuring their unconventional covers of songs by Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj. If asked to which category I would put rapper Krispy Kreme into, I'd have to say the first one, but let's not keep us from enjoying his 15 minutes while it lasts.

I haven't been able to pin down exactly where Mr. Kreme is from, but based on his thick drawl, I'm assuming he originates from somewhere in the south. Outside of his Facebook bio which says he's into "rappin. playin basketball. kissin girls." (sic), I haven't been able to find out much about him at all. What I was able to discover is that he's fairly new to the game, his Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube accounts were all created in early to mid April. In that short amount of time, the three music videos he's uploaded have been viewed over 4.25 million times.

I'll go out on a limb and say that a majority of those views probably haven't come from people's appreciation of his music (although the beats are actually pretty bangin'), but from hilarious lyrics (however unintentionally funny they are meant to be) like these from his single "The Baddest";

I bet you sleep with a night light
'Cause you're scared of the dark
'Cause you stink like a fart
Well I'll light your fart on fire with my rhymes
You think I won't? I do it all the time

Sure, "dark" and "fart" don't exactly rhyme, but you're too busy laughing to care.

I think what seals it for people (myself included) is the overall package. Outside of groundbreaking lyrics like those above, Krispy's dorky appearance, the nearly constant presence of his equally dorky sidekick, Mr. I've-never-seen-a-female-boob-other-than-on-the-internet, "Money Maker Mike", and the fact that two of his three videos were apparently shot in his parents basement where he displays his passion for push-ups and taking out his aggression on a torn punching bag all while glorifying the stereotype that all rappers carry weapons, come together for one neatly wrapped package of hilarity.

And while we sit back and have a good laugh, with 4.25 million YouTube hits and his songs on iTunes, it may wind up being Krispy Kreme who has the last laugh, suckas.
