"Typical Rock Star" by Shamarr Allen and the Underdawgs begins with Shamarr walking into a record executive's office for a meeting, only to find out that there's good news and bad news. The good news is that the record executive promises to make him rich and earn him a Grammy, citing his past accomplishments and even taking credit for the success of Miles Davis. The bad news is, he wants to own him - get rid of his band members, cut down on the use of his trumpet, and change his looks. It then cuts to Shamarr and the Underdawgs performing Typical Rock Star, which is a serious jam, with Shamarr doing the vocals and an outstanding job on the trumpet. This rock jam, which incorporates rap as well, has a really great, universal sound that appeal to the masses. Clever lyrics, great vocals and strong music are all present here. Both the video and track are thoroughly enjoyable, completely innovative and this is one of those groups that breaks the rules and does it with style and finesse. If you don't see another video or listen to another song this year, you should check this one out.
