Lupe Fiasco and his CD “The Cool” has really caught my attention since it came out. Not not only his music, but his video interpretations of the music are fun to watch. Check out the video below.

Hip-Hop Saved My Life

Lupe Fisco

He’s a backpack rapper with a penchant for flashy items and a knack for forgetting A Tribe Called Quest lyrics at the wrong time.

But Lupe Fiasco’s recent single, “Hip-Hop Saved My Life,” is as endearing a record as any MC could put together. The song is from his sophomore set, The Cool.

And he’s dedicated it not to one, but two of the game’s finest: Bun B and Slim Thug.

“With ‘Hip-Hop Saved My Life,’ I attempted to make ‘Kick, Push,’ but for rappers,” he explained to MTV Base. “To give a real basic play-by-play of the life of a rapper before he makes it — if he ever makes it, because you can get stuck in that and be trying to make it for the rest of your life.”

Man Plays Burning Piano

23 03 2008

Yosuke Yamashita, a famous pianist came to the conclusion that playing a piano while its not on fire is no longer an entertaining way of passing the time. So on the 8th of March he put on a spiffy fireproof suit and played a burning piano on the beach. There he played a dazzling improvised jazz performance for ten minutes before the piano was no longer able to play. The Gods of old in Valhalla were all in tears after such an awe inspiring performance.

However, this performance was not his first. In fact he preformed a similar one in 1973, lucky for him it was made into a film, which can be seen here. Unfortunately, this isn’t the entire performance, just a sliver of it. However, his message is clear, play the best piano solo while you can, because sooner or later it will be unplayable.
