Hot Cheetos and Takis Snacks Get a Summer Anthem [Video]

Picking up a bag of Hot Cheetos, or Takis is a norm when walking into a 7-Eleven, and finally there is a song to express the joy of eating these flaming snacks.

“Snack. Snack. Snack. Crunch.” Couldn’t have described the process any better myself.

The song is simply titled Hot Cheetos and Takis. The group that sings it goes by the name Y.N. Rich Kids and is a part of the North Community Beats and Rhymes Program in Minneapolis.

Since 2006, the Beats and Rhymes program has produced eight albums and is now getting major recognition from Rolling Stone and celebrities like comedian Aziz Ansari.

These kids are cute, energetic and actually have a pretty good flow. The quality of the song is probably what made it popular and will probably still grow in popularity.

If a music group like Odd Future can catch-on in the industry, surely these talented, slick spittin’, crunk kids could catch-on.

When a kid can spit a line like, “I’m on point like an elbow, my hands red like Elmo,” you can’t help but fall in love with the song.

Upon listening, you can tell these kids have talent, a better rap flow than a lot of mainstream artists and more lyrical depth that a lot of what is played on the radio (Ponder that statement as you listen to 2 Chainz on your iPod).

With almost 3 million views, this video has already created a bit of a buzz, but we’d be doing our readers a disservice if we didn’t post this.

For those who need a new, catchy summer song to add to their playlist, you can do a lot worse than Hot Cheetos and Takis.
