Reasons why I love Youtube # 22

Oh shit, it's the making of the Bout It Bout It III video, featuring rare & secrete footage that's essentially the Rap equivalent of a lost behind-the-scenes clip of Orson Welles, Herman Mankiewicz and George Schaefer on the set of Citizen Kane in terms of historical importance to the artform :

Highlights include Cam telling the camera it's 105 degrees out as he stands there pouring with sweat in a vest over a tall tee and jeans, previously unseen shots of his legendary hot salmon coloured velour vest and shorts outfit, the chil'ren of Harlem shouting Master P's name as the grand imperial Percy Miller sets foot on the basketball court, and 1:50 onwards of the video being soundtracked by the alternate version of Bout It Bout It III with different vox by P and a coda of the classic No Limit "BOUNCE, BOUNCE, BOUNCE, BOUNCE" chant.
