Rapping on Headphones

well heres some backpack rap tracks for those of you who prefer to listen to their music on headphones while taking public transportation.

Probably one of my favorite illustrators has been doing music videos recently. theyre very beautiful. Beyond that though I love that animation when paired with the right illustrators can add such great dynamic usage of composition and negative space...anyways enjoy the two music videos and the short doc piece...(you might enjoy it more if you know a bit of french).


See...the problem is the people who actually listened to everything the Boob Tube told them as a child...led to people like this..
