Hip-Hop – Some new tunes

I’m not a huge hip-hop/rap guy. Give me Wu Tang ,or The Clipse circa  Hell Hath No Fury any day of the week, but none of the other stuff gets me too amped. However, these two songs, both involving Big Boi (formerly of Outkast) are fresh and exciting. First, is “Tightrope” starring Kansas City native Janelle Monae and featuring some amazing Michael Jackson/James Brown-esque dancing. The second, is “Shutterbug” a bouncing rap song in which Big Boi just dominates his rhymes. It’s great to see some good stuff coming from the genre, it’s caught my attention, we’ll see if it’ll keep it…
