About the only things we know about Lieders of the New School are that they seem to be German moombahton producers and they’re not the Leaders of the New School, the early ’90s rap group known for launching the career of Busta Rhymes and collabing with Tribe on “Scenario.” Lest there be any confusion, though, the beatmakers behind “Ultimate Love” featuring faux-African deejay Prince Zimboo begin their video for said tune with the acronym “LOTNS,” as opposed to the “LONS” preferred by Busta, Charlie Brown, Dinco D and Cut Monitor Milo.
Zimboo, we know a little bit about. The Akeem from Zamunda-inspired character, once dubbed the “African Borat,” is the alter ego of Jamaica’s Asani Morris (also of “Sani Showbizz” fame). While we’re still waiting for a full-on project to deliver on the hilarious promise of his show-stealing cameo on Major Lazer’s Guns Don’t Kill People, Lazers Do and clips like this, “Ultimate Love” will do for now. The video showcases crudely-animated wining girls, an unexpected Coming to America-inspired outro and lines like this one, which literally had us rolling out of our seat as we pressed the rewind button: Could it be Zimboo’s camel humps that make ladies see me and be shaking rumps?/Used to laugh when through traffic my camel slices/But I guess things changed since the gas price crisis. Heh…that is good.
