GUANTE RAPS (video)

Only a few people have heard the new Guante & Big Cats album, but one response we've gotten a few times is "I didn't know Guante could rap; I thought this was going to be a spoken-word album over beats." So yeah, so we're all on the same page, let me talk in third person for a second:

Guante raps. Guante is not "a poet who raps." Guante raps really well. Guante also performs spoken-word really well, but for him, those two things aren't related all that much. It is possible for one person to do two (or more) different things at a high level.

And yeah, I like spoken-word, and I like writing songs "about stuff." But like I say in the video below, no one likes to be pigeon-holed. So here's a video of me rapping about rapping while Big Cats plays the MPC:

One reason why I like watching Guante rap:
When you speak to Guante, he is very calm, his words leave softly - introspective; then his raps explode through your space.
