In a twisted way, I really enjoy this. Well produced, and UKULELE!!! I'm sure in 20 minutes I'll be tired of it, but for the moment, awesome.

Wow, interesting stuff. But I think I feel the same way about this as I did Dan Le Sac vs. Scroobius Pip. Musically it's really refreshing and interesting, but the vocalist's flow throws it for me. It's not the accent, I really like it. It's the "bounciness" of it, the "Now this is a jam for all of the fellas" type lyrical phrasing.

Much, much, respect though.

That was one of the funniest things I've ever seen. And damn, that boy can spit fire. I'd be pretty scared right now if I was Mr. B.

I can't stand this. I've heard either this, or some guy just like him a long time ago. His lyrics are lullzy or whatever, but he's hardly breaking open some new sort of sub-genre or pioneering anything. At least I hope not.

Its better than another vapid boast about how much money/girls/power you have. Or talking about guns, or talking about being cheated on (Is it me or does every rapper have a song about a relationship that went badly?). I couldn't really be any more bored of that kind of thing. And talking about how good a rapper you are became old hat for me when I listened to Canibus and realised how much of a copout it is.

Far better to listen to Professor Elemental talking about cups of tea, or building a flying machine, or performing dental surgery, or exploring new frontiers and having absinth parties with midgets, or diss tracks about boxing, or how everything is splendid and he has a special hat. Or about Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Or a Fete. Or Steampunk. Or snuff. And thats in the space of one album.

Really. Rap needs to get over the rut its in. What better way to do that than to remove any element of its original culture lyrically and apply the same techniques to what is essentially unlimited fantasy? Professor Elemental could be reinvented as a character a million times over and still ome from a new slant, be it sci-fi, high fantasy, stories of the supernatural, etc etc etc. It has unlimited potential, and it makes the rap about characters who can be anything the rapper wants them to be, rather than about a bunch of predictable cliches that are eating themselves to survive by handing on references and props to each other as if the approval of other artists matter more than the approval of the fans.
