There’s been so much buzz around Odd Future recently that it’s easy to forget how many amazing MCs there are out there, spitting truth into a mic.
Two of my favorites for the past few years have been P.O.S. and Astronautalis. I haven’t written about them yet because I haven’t figured out exactly what to say to do them and their music justice. From a lyrical, musical and production perspective their records push the genre forward, and on stage, they’re beasts. Individually, they kill. Together, they eat the audience alive.
There are so many great little moments in this video, but Astronautalis’ performance from 2:18 to 2:48 tells you all you need to know about the passion and energy he puts into his music.
I’ll be writing about them more in the future, but for now – enjoy.
