I feel like I don’t post enough hip hop and honestly I love it, so I am not sure why. One of my all time favorite groups has to be Sound Tribe and I can never get enough of Dr. Dre, so the hip hop drought stops here and now, with one of my new favorites…Hoodie Allen. Apparently this used to be a duo, but Hoodie has taken credit for the following track which features UK pop success, Marina and the Diamonds.
“You are not a Robot” is the perfect example of how rap and the indie scene have collided, there are so few boundaries anymore….it’s sort of like music globalization….and it’s fantastic. I think I might have liked reading “The World is Flat” if it incorporated more musical metaphors….although I am not sure Mexico importing statuettes of the Virgin of Guadalupe from China has a comparable musical situation. ANYWAY……Despite the fact that Thomas Friedman might never truly understand me, this song is a true hip hop hooray…download the rest of the mix tape The Diamond Cuts if you feel so inclined.
