Big Cycle Beat
This is more than likely the greatest hip-hop coffee mug solo of all time.
Christmas Break 2008: two bored kids + music geek dad + lots of free time = this.
So, what do we have here? This is one from the archives for sure, can't believe this was almost 3 years ago. Anyhow, well ... that's Andrea singing random syllables into auto-tune there. That's uh ... me ... dad ... singing "bling", "hooooo", "ooh", "aah", "haaaaaah", and "with my mind on my money and my money on my mind". That's all three of us doing hand claps, and overdubbed trumpet into a good ol' SM-57 ... the aforementioned coffee-cup ... random other stuff too.
I look at it this way: how many kids can look back on their Christmas break from when they were in elementary school and say ... well one year we made the craziest hip-hop beat with dad ... yeah. I'm either the coolest dad in the world or the weirdest. I'll take either. Or both.
Parenthood: I did it for the lulz, apparently :-)
