Love it! Pure genius.

This is refreshing and creative. I had a smile on my face the whole time while watching. Thanks OP.

Is this the rapper 'the streets', a UK rapper? It sounds like him. I had his CD back a few years ago, eventhough I don't really listen to rap, that guy is funny and has some good songs.

this has got to be the finest rap i've heard in 15 years. he should start making albums, i would definitely buy and play it in my car with humungous speakers.

I believe it's this same guy, no?




If it is, then he has a CD out. His name is "the streets". However, I'm not too sure. They look a little different, though this video is older, much older.

This will show you who they are and explain a little bit about the structure of their art.

Why does everyone keep suggesting Immortal Technique, his voice is WAY worse IMO and their topics are just whack. Personally I don't enjoy rap music that focus on violence and we'll just being offensive. Song's about gang rapping your own mom through her broken jaw are just not cool

Unless you want to feel sick after your listening I recommend skipping over the Immortal Technique suggestions.

just my 2.0, if your an Immortal Technique fan my appologies but people need to be warned before they go listening and expecting something dope like the OP showed us and end up with garbage.

I guess you misunderstood that whole song then. It's not just about raping your own mom. Besides that wasn't his mom.

Edit
Oh and to comment on your earlier edit. I don't disagree with you on the eminem accent, he overdid it way too much, which is why relapse is easily his worst album. Not to take away any of the lyrical genius that is Eminem.

I'm not into rap at all and was reluctant to even watch the vids, but after seeing the first one I had to watch the all - absolutely brilliant.

Thanks for posting - I'll be seeking more of these forsure.

These are really good. This guy has real talent despite the haters in this thread. I'm looking forward to more.

Is it bad that I find this more informative and creative than the conspiracy chicks? Something about that show makes my skin crawl. Like an pedophile uncle everybody thinks is awesome but there is just something not quite right about them. Anyway I don't get that from this show. It's unbiased and creative. 10 out of 10 from me.

An example that you don't need flashy slides and any production. Look forward to more news. Thanks OP S&F

Thanks for that clip, although I don't think it's the same guy(s), I always did want to see the film clip to that song, it's hilarious.

Some of us would rather listen to songs with violence over lil wayne BS about girls, money, drugs, killing (yeah almost all rap contains violence). So i don't see what the big deal is...If you cant stand technique don't even bother with vinnie paz hes a beast... Not all techniques songs are good, some are quit awful. These are the few good ones:

Mistakes, leaving the past, F the government, point of no return, caught in a hustle, the cause of death.

You should really consider giving these tracks an ear and beyond the lines about killing the government you would be surprised how deep he really is.

Lowkey is another great artist out of the UK. Hes Iraqi, made a track with technique called voices of the voiceless. Unlike immortal, Lowkey has never talked about killing people but rather promotes peace. Good lowkey tracks are:

Everything must change, voices of the voiceless, tears to laughter (long live Palestine), Something wonderful, Obama nation, Bars for my brother, who really cares, politics remix, one world, trapped in the system, lies, voices in my head, beautiful world.

So far I have only listened to the first video, and it's brilliant. I was expecting a guy just"reading" the lyrics, but he actually has a great flow, and the lyrics were very well put together, pretty funny too.

I guess, the british accent may put some people off, especially when used to American rap.

Thanks for the heads up.

I actually really enjoyed Relapse, the lyrical content may not have been very deep, and it was just plain crazy, but his flows and rhyming skemes were off the hook, imo.

His accents made words rhyme that don't even rhyme, wich was brilliant.

I think Encore was the worst, only liked Mosh and Mockingbird of that album.
