So, you start on Youtube doing your standard search for "Madlib" a search that cannot be too uncommon and you find yourself diving into related videos of equal brilliance. A Madlib promo for his already released Beat Konducta album.
Oh, man, so awesome. Speechless. The part where he rips out the hair and blows it away is money. Then you sift through some garbage myspace-esque comments and filter out a couple of jewels which lead you to further videos. This one, an old school rap video Netherland artists Miker G and DJ Sven. Wikipedia states that this song was later remixed into the Madonna hit. Madonna should have left it to the pros.
Man, I even remember when people would wear those hats. So awesome. And the sweaters - my brother had something like that except it was black and white I think. Classic. While I am outing my brother, he also had a keyboard hat. For those of you who grew up on Power Rangers and not He-Man we are talking about a musical instrument keyboard here, not a computer keyboard. This was back when playing the piano could be as bad ass as playing the guitar because you could strap your keyboard to your shoulder and rock out. OK, bear with me here, last video and its a good one.
So this is the full scene expanded out from the short clip on the Madlib promo. How good is that? Absolutely, insanely brilliant. OK, I know three videos in one post is pushing it but hopefully that was worth it. I still have more vacation photos I need to share from Leshan and Tibet so that is on my plate. Work is busy right now. Maybe I should spend less time on youtube....
