Wait, What?! T.I. & Mekhi Phifer Cast in A&E’s “Roots” Remake

There’s a Roots remake on the horizon and the cast is made up of a rapper (T.I.), a couple of British Black actors (Rege-Jean Page & Malachi Kirby), and Mekhi Phifer! Wait, why is there a Roots remake? Was the first one not good enough? Well, A&E is already in production with the 4-part series based on Alex Haley’s book about his family’s journey from enslavement to freedom in America.

VIDEO VIRUS: Obama Impersonator Parodies Rapper T.I.’s ‘Whatever You Like’ Song

Remember AlphaCat's Obama impersonation on Youtube that put SNL's Fred Armisen's parody of the President-elect to shame? And remember rapper T.I.'s "Whatever You Like" song that sat at number one on the charts for so long even middle schoolers did a remake of it -as an election debate, no less? Put the two together and you get "Whatever I Like," a hilarious spoof of President-elect Barack Obama sitting in the Oval Office dropping a few rhymes. Here are some of the priceless lyrics:

First black prez, ain't that nice? I'm in the highest office that's right! / Now, I can do whatever I like! Now, I can do whatever I like! YEAAAH!

So what I'm half black and half white, So what I fist bump with my wife / Now, I can do whatever I like! Now, I can do whatever I like! YEAAAH!

Time to put this black prez in yo' life

Long as y'all got me you won't need nobody / You want it, I got it / Propose it, I'll sign it! / Tell them Republicans to 'be quiet!'

"Obama on the left/ McCain on the right/ We can talk politics all night/ And you can vote however you like/ You can vote however you like, yeah." "It doesn't necessarily show you which party to vote for but it gives you the good and the bad of both parties," says student Willie Thornton in an impressive CNN interview. They may not be old enough to vote but they prove that you are never too young to inspire. Vote.
