For those of you who have yet to see Die Antwoord, I thoroughly suggest you go check them out. A ‘band’, or group I suppose, of South African descent currently riding the wave of popularity, spitting out – that’s my attempt at hip-hop lingo – unusual lyrics over interestingly mesmerizing beats.
Their ‘nu zef flow’ is very much like marmite, you either love them or you hate them. It feels very much as if people are trying to work them out; they could easily be the brainchild of Joaquin Phoenix and Casey Affleck, an elaborate trick to make everyone actually think they are for real. Or equally, and perhaps more likely, they are for real. And I am certainly not one to argue with that, as strange as they might be their ‘style’ and obvious perseverance is oddly admirable.
Anyway, moving on…
Hopefully I still have your attention (I guess those who haven’t seen or heard of Die Antwoord before will currently be sat, mouth open, trying to decipher what exactly is taking place in front of their eyes. I for one find that girl strangely attractive…..yeah, right).
Distracted myself again, sorry. DA overload. The point of this blog post was actually to bring to your attention an ‘artist’ who seems to be taking the Cornish, well, Porthleven’s music scene at least, by storm. MC Waddy is, I assume, likely to be the village’s only RnB artist, thus making him the best. His music, and from what I gather, comedic genius, bring him very much on par with Goldie Lookin’ Chain. Yes, that’s right GLC standard, whatever that means…
It’s definitely not my place to pass judgement on whether this is a comedy, or a realistic attempt at following in the footsteps of Vanilla Ice. Either way it’s a valiant attempt. What I will say is that expect a bit of T-pain vocals, a portion of offensive language, a pinch of eccentric wardrobe choices, oh and the village people and friends in the background.
That’s it from me, I will leave you lovely people to decide what you think for yourselves. Enjoy!
Peace out (sorry, it had to be done)
N.B. those who may take offence to expletives, firearms (referred to as glocks ‘in the hood’) and misogyny steer clear… those women who wish to watch, perhaps pay no attention to the lyrics?
