iHiphop.com and Three Thug Mice present a Thanksgiving short:The newest installment in the rapidly growing viral/web-based animated short series. For those not yet in the know, Three Thug Mice is the brainchild of Lower-East Side animator/artist and creative mind Steve Marcus. Combining elements of hip-hop, shady, grimy and grittystreets circa 1980s New York, rodents and crime (read: all the thingswe love about NYC), Marcus has crafted an episodic of daily life inthe hood. Rife with bright colors, fresh music, witty quips and surlycharacters, Three Thug Mice is a celebration of the creative energythat was bottled up in the ghettos of New York during the time whenhip-hop came of age, and is still present today.Featuring a truly all-star cast of characters that rivals any”urban” television programming, and some big-budget Hollywood films, ThreeThug Mice has secured an eclectic assortment of vocal volunteers tocontribute characters to the series. The main characters Vic, Tik andBrik (think the guys who would have been mugging Bert & Ernie on theirwalk home from the subway to Sesame Street) are voiced by rap legendsKool G Rap and R.A. The Rugged Man and NYC Graffiti king Min One.With supporting roles farmed out to everyone from M-1 (Dead Prez),Nipsey Hussle, Tek (Smif-N-Wessun), Rohan Marley (Bob Marley’s son)and Pistol Pete (legendary enforcer for Big Pun + Fat Joe and founderof Kill All Rats Entertainment) to James Duval (from Donnie Darko) andAshley Blue (award-winning Adult Video star), Three Thug Mice truly isa world unto itself.
