Canadian Hip Hop Is About To E.X.P.L.O.D.E

Do you remember when the Sci-Fi channel used to show anime every Friday night? I do…and I especially remember being super-creeped out by the movie Akira.

I mean, all the posters make it look like it’ll be classic cyberpunk: bad-ass bikes, tough Tokyo gang kids, that sort of thing. Then bizarro anime hell breaks loose and the movie just gets weird.

Anyways, Dane Jah ras is a  Canadian poet/freestylist and he has put together a concept album based on Akira. From Dane’s blog:

“Each track features at least one sample from the film. Samples used include Japanese dialogue, the re-done English dialogue and segments from “The Akira Suite” (The film’s score). The mixtape was produced and recorded by myself. The concept, mix and master are from KnowSomething’s DJ D-Mass.”

    The trouble with Britney is always exactly the same. She is an awesome talent. It is so moving to see her waste it getting caught up in all that awful garbage. She should be taken to rehab, or get into a clinic, or get a better coach. Will she ever tour in future? I’d kill to see her perform, her concerts are really spellbinding.
