Y’all know that I love me some house music, but I’m into all types of music, especially if it’s good music. When it comes to hip-hop, I’m really into thought provoking revolutionary lyrics, and when I’m in revolutionary mindset, I’m vibin’ to the lyrics of Napoleon Da Legend (NDL).
It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted some music from my friend NDL, but today I’ve got quite a treat for everyone. New video from NDL x new music. He’s been mad busy on his grind in New York, but that’s a good thing! I expect that 2013 will be a huge year for him, so I’m excited to see what is next.
Watch the new video for “My Life” directed by Crazy Al Cayne. This video x song is reality rap!!
New music from NDL featuring Sean Price
I often ask myself “Do rappers ever actually think about their lyrics?” Seriously, some of the rap songs hitting the airwaves today are just filled with such mundane ignorance. It’s not even exciting ignorance (as if ignorance can be exciting.) After awhile everything just becomes this big clusterf**k of nonsense, which leaves my pondering is there any in depth thought process involved?
Well I’m not sure what compelled Rhett & Link to do a rap about thoughts, but maybe it has some underlying message about the reality of thoughts and what you can actually rap about. In their latest YouTube video,”Thoughtful Guy,” Rhett & Link rap about…well, their thoughts. It ends up sounding like this cool stoner vibe, but it’s actually a pretty good rap.
Peep the video below. Imagine if you sat down and just rapped about your thoughts. Would they be fuming with intellect and curiosity? Or would a rap about your thoughts (like some rap songs I hear) be riddled with jargon, deeming it a big clusterf**k of nonsense?
