Default I think I have a new favorite hip-hop head.

This cat called Witness. I listened to him a couple times before I left, but just started jamming it a lot on my iPod and f*ck, this guy is everything I like in an emcee. Anywerd, he's got a new CD coming out.

I've never heard of him, not crazy about his flow. I like his little quote on his myspace page though about how he wants to french kiss Regina Spektor LOL

He strikes me as a wigger version of John Mayer, and by that I mean he's not very good and I don't like him. He's not so much rapping as he is quickly singing love songs with a gravely voice.

So the story is, after I started listening to this kid back in '07, I started posting to his forum. We lived close together so we would catch shows and whatever every now and then. On his forum a few weeks back he said he wanted to do a response to the Watsky- pale kid raps fast video. He did, and got some good response out of it. We were all hoping he might get a couple fans out of this. What actually ended up happening was better than any of us thought. T-mobile called him up and asked him if he would film a couple commercials for them, with that hot Tmobile chick. They've been playing a lot during the NBA finals. Now he's going to after parties with the Hilton sisters and shit. It's been insane to watch his small ascent, and I hope this does great stuff for his career.









Here's one of the commercials. The rap isn't that great in my opinion, but I'm picky. It's a commerical though, so fuck it.



Here's the fast rap video that started it.



And here's a video from his latest album if anyone wants to check him out.

Wow he hit the big time with a commercial.

Childish Gambino did also
