Alpoko Don – Get My Paypa Dog
And if you haven’t already, check out some of the related videos to that one on YouTube, there are several of him sitting on a porch performing songs in this same vein, but in a much more raw format. It’s pretty amazing to see a dude not only rapping complete, over-4-minute-long songs from memory without stumbling over a single word, singing on the chorus, and playing the beat on a front porch banister all at the same time. There aren’t many rappers, past or present, that can do even half of that stuff. I’m definitely looking forward to the music he’s working on now (especially that track with Scarface he announced!), which will no doubt be a more polished version of what we’ve seen so far, but the rawness of these original videos is pretty hard to beat.
