Tokyo Trawler Recommendation #4 (09/12/09)

Artist: Loer Velocity
Tune: Rehab
Record: Ready for a Renaissance (2006)

Category: Pass the lighter

When you don’t have a Wikipedia page, you’re either a nobody in the grand scheme of things, or you’re super-cool and underground within your chosen art. In this light-hearted* rap collaboration*, Wikipedia-less LV and the other ‘users’ are gathered at the local Narcotics* Anonymous meeting. Whilst LV himself appears for less than half a minute, his rhymes are delivered in trademark* effortless, über* chilled-out* fashion, and the contrasting styles of the various rappers nicely complement* each other, without cluttering* the song’s simple production style. Full of humorous remarks, the unique and innovative* ‘meeting’ concept of this tune almost steer the listener’s attention away from an interesting underlying* social message.

The Tokyo Trawler’s message to the people:
Thoroughly amusing - a quote generator.
