Boca Granny Out to Upstage Jay-Z

Just for the sake of comparison, that's the video for "Empire State of Mind," by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys. (Around the two-minute mark, I think I heard him say he'd steal Dwyane Wade from our Miami Heat, the jerk.) Now let's let a local grandmother take a crack. Here's Hindy Melzer. She's in a Boca State of Mind.

Killer dance moves, especially for a 64-year-old. But I'm a little disappointed Hindy forgot to boast about living in a city notorious for being a launching pad and playground for the world's greatest fraudsters. On its telecast Monday, WPTV-5 did a segment on the rappin' granny. You can see that after the jump.
