Default Are there any rappers who also play instruments at the same time?

This has interested me for a while... anyone know any rappers who also play an instrument when they rap? I mean, I don't know if Lil Wayne played guitar whilst rapping but let's pretend that never happened.

If you consider the turntables an instrument (you should). J-Live displays particularlly nice turntablisim and emceeing at the same time on his track bragging writes making the scratches, cuts, and rhymes at the same time. This is him doing it in video to get a better idea of how he works the track.

To be fair that is pretty cool. I guess I was talking about more 'conventional' instruments but I'll give you that one. Any other examples?
