You probably never thought there’d be a rap song trashing single-use plastic bags. Then again, you probably didn’t see the organic dairy rap or the energy audit pop song coming either.

This parody of Jay-Z’s hip hop anthem to New York (“Empire State of Mind“) is aimed at giving plastic bags a bad rap and getting grocery-cart pushers to push their reps to jump on the ban-wagon like Los Angeles recently did.

Let us know if you like the way they work it and try to bag it, bag it up. Or if you no diggity.
