I know weird rap is not a new thing, but the internet is making it way more possible for all the serious weirdos making rap videos out there to reach a broad audience. It’s interesting because in a lot of ways, mainstream rap has moved more and more towards the opposite extreme of being ultra marketable to the point of some new videos looking more like commercials than music videos, but on the other hand the underground is moving farther and farther into the opposite extreme to ultra niche appeal territory. It’s cool to watch, I’m enjoying both extremes pretty equally to be real honest.
Here are a few of those slightly more bizarre videos that I’ve stumbled across lately. This first one I just saw for the first time today, and inspired me to put this post together. Get ready to get weird.
Zebra Katz – Ima Read (feat. Njena Reddd Foxxx)
Flatbush Zombies – Thug Waffle
Kool Keith – The Game is Free (feat. Megabone)
