Pale Kid goes viral

By now you’ve probably all seen this. A couple weeks ago the homey, George Watsky released his video, “Pale Kid Raps Fast” Little did he know, the song would gain millions of plays in less then the first 24 hours of him putting it up.. Apparently a lot of people wanted to see a pale kid rap fast including none other then Ellen Degenerous.. The video is being parodied by beatboxers and other white rappers hoping to ride the wave of popularity. George and I used to joke about the fame and acclaim he got from his appearance on Def Poetry Jam. But fuck Russel Simmons and that tall Israeli, we got the internet. As I write this post the original video has generated 5,587,531 views since originally posted it.. If only there was a link to rapperslashblogger at the end of it.. Hats off to George, he’s been forever diligent with his craft since I met him years ago when we both opened for Blackalicious in Boston. Be on the lookout for some new heat coming from the both of us real soon.. in the meantime, watch as he skillfully multitasks, speedrhyming and cat-stroking.. You know you wish you were ill like that…

Back 4 the 3rd Tyme..

The thing is, when you have a life, it gets very difficult to keep a blog updated constantly with new material.. Especially when you are the sole-contributor.. If there’s any other rappers out there who want to contribute your more than welcome, the more the merrier.. In any event I’m back on this, Happy belated new year to everybody who still bothers to check this, and happy 22nd birthday to me!

1st things 1st… ADHD will be out very soon and I just put out a new music video! I got mixed reviews about my self-edited, overly artsy piece for Concerto, so Rene Dongo and I teamed up once again to put some visuals with the record, “1Tyme4urMynd”. The song and video mark a slightly new direction in my work, a more personal and honest approach as far as the lyrics go. With ADHD, I tried not to limit myself to “sounding like a conscious rapper” when it came to the writing, it was a a risk in terms of how I expect people to react, but so far I am extremely happy with the results. With 1tyme4urmynd, Rah Intelligence supplied a beat that starts off very dark and sinister sounding.. It lets the sun come out for just a moment before going right back into that dark place – very much a reflection of where I was at mentally while writing.. I left song structure alone and decided to just rhyme all the way through the record as opposed to trying to come up with a hook.. When Arcitype and I recorded it, we got it in one take with no punches.

Note the symbolic transitions and Rene’s use of contrasting images throughout the piece. I guarantee your going to want to watch this more than once…

Brugal, Blunts, & PBR

We definitely tried to do something completely different here. To accompany the Concerto piece I recently released off of the ADHD project, I edited footage Jacob took of me in our top secret location. I know this is something that will get mixed reactions given the content, but I feel like this works with the song in showing the depression that I talk about in the record and what I was going through while writing a lot of the material for ADHD. The quality of the footage should’ve come out better given the camera we used, but something got lost in the rendering. I’m still working this out, I haven’t edited film in a long time and I used imovie for this so cut me some slack. Other then that, Jake shot this with his new camera that takes really nice photos and video.. what do you think..?

Christmas

Rah Intelligence posted this on his facebook earlier today and I had to share it! Every year I go through this whole thing with people about why I don’t celebrate christmas so I am thankful for this video courtesy of 4word productions that deals with the origins and meanings behind christmas in a light-hearted but real way. Enjoy..

Problems

This new joint I got from NYOIL goes hard! I am a firm believer that conscious rappers should never be afraid to step out of their element to let a muhf*cka know he can still get smacked. We not the hippy conscious rappers! This joint, which also features Sic Men and Dyverse, reminds me of Wu sh*t from back in the day which should be know surprise since cats also hail from Shaolin (The Stat.. Staten Island if u don’t know..)
