Google defines blockbuster as "a thing of great power or size, in particular a movie, book, or other product that is a great commercial success," with a secondary definition being the 1940s slang, "denoting a huge aerial bomb capable of destroying a whole block of streets." I can tell you from personal experience that the bass heavy "Blockbuster Night Pt. 1” groove is capable of shaking whole city blocks when played at high volume.

The video itself is a fun idea, but the premiere was a bit spoiled by the censorship of corporate behemoth MTV Networks. We have updated this post with the uncensored version of the video posted to Mass Appeal's YouTube. The blaring lights of the ambulance are a nice visual for the song, and the EMT roles are well suited for the super duo of Killer Mike and El-P.
