I’m sure this video resonates with those that received their introduction to quintessential nineties rap through vinyl records and tape decks. My first rap album was Puff Daddy’s No Way Out, on CD (fml), and it’s a shame to know that if I was just a few years older I would’ve had that rock hard rap gambit pumping out a Clairtone stereo next to the Michael Jordan poster in my bedroom. I didn’t have that, but it’s okay. Ka is making up for it.
You might of heard of Ka (he hit Pitchfork a few weeks ago with a strong album review of The Night’s Gambit). However, if you want a great overview of the forty-year-old NY firefighter / humble hip-hop-ripper, check out Brandon Soderberg’s piece over at Spin. I’ll be pumping Ka MP3s through my digital auxiliary cable in the meantime.
This is why you never cheat on crazy people. For real though, Charles Black produces, sings, raps – he is the auteur and curator of this dynamic sound, and really kills this cutter on all levels. I love a good storyteller, especially one with a unique perspective (at least in the rap world) when it comes to women and relationships.

The sun always shines in Austin, TX, but some days start with Klangkarussell, Will Heard, and improv dance scenes that really turn the morning into an electronic jazzfest that don’t ever stop (until someone kindly asks you to stop playing that fucking song on repeat).
The Austrian producer duo Klangkarussell (Tobias Rieser and Adrian Held) are beginning to blow up in Europe, keep an eye on their Soundcloud for more of these housey summacutz.
I don’t want no scrub, waiving out the passenger side of his best friend’s ride, trying to holler at me. I do however, want Ta Ku in my busted ass car that I both own and put $10 of gas in at least twice a week.
