very interesting and well done... - this reminds me of pre-bhangra/reggae fusion
music, before hip hop ever existed this was al jolson (yes he was a real entertainer) doning blackface paint or makeup.

sorry, not real. For confirmation just check the credits to the song! Written by "MIA & Switch". Sample from the Clash. Check wikipedia. You've been had :)
