So I stumbled across this video today. No idea who Mac Lethal is. No idea he's a rapper. No idea he's a YouTube star(?). But like most things I post, I like to provide some background/history. So here we go. Mac Lethal is a 35 year old independent artist, radio and television host, and author from Kansas City. This dude has an EXTENSIVE catalog that consists of four LPs, seven EPs, and twelve mixtapes that span about 16 years. His YouTube page has well over half a million subscribers and the video below garnered over one million views in less than a week. If yall want more info, Google him or peep his YouTube page. You will definitely be entertained.
Now on to the video. This dude shows AMAZING control of cadence, flow, word play and accents (ha, except for the UK accent). The video isn't really "27 styles" of rapping since he goes into specific artists. Artists are not styles. I guess you can make an argument for that. But you can definitely look past that to get the "Old Kanye" vs "New Kanye" style. On the surface this video is meant to be entertaining and funny, but you get some Hip Hop history in a format that is mainstream friendly. This dude has a lot of talent to pull this off, so take a second and make your day better with this joint.
Peep video below.
