Michael Nhat. Fuck, this dude is a total hip-hop star! He was about to start the show when he realized that he’d left his beats outside, so there was this five minute stretch of time where everyone in the hallway was chanting “Michael Nhat! Michael Nhat!” Arto from Narwhal Party hyped the crowd while we waited, asking us about our drug preferences (“Do you like shrooms?!” “YEAH!!!” “Do you like to shoot heroin?!” “YEAH!!!”), and eventually Nhat got there with his jams and started
bumping them. The crowd immediately raged and surrounded the rapper, a
short Vietnamese dude with a very-Vietnamese beard and impeccable taste in sweaters. It was pretty great to watch him bounce around in the midst of his fans, clutching onto his microphone and once getting thrown so hard into his CD player that he inadvertently shut off his backing track. I saw part of his show last week at Environmentaland, and he was sitting down in a chair during that. This was very different indeed.

I didn’t hear a word that he had to say. It wasn’t really that kind of show, and I’m not even sure that he’s that kind of a performer. But some spark shines through in his performance—even if the words are distorted by a shitty mic, through a shitty PA, in a shitty room. And he has sick beats, and I really like the sing-songy nature of his flow. But to be honest, I’m having a hard time figuring out why exactly I thought he was special—was it the music itself, or was it
the fact that it came out of this particular guy? I bought his record, so maybe I’ll figure it out later.

  1. WAIT WAIT WAIT ONE MUTHA FUCKIN’ MINUTE!!!!!
    Did this ‘Guy’ actually say, ‘But to be honest, I’m having a hard time figuring out why exactly I thought he was special—was it the music itself, or was it
    the fact that it came out of this particular guy?’
    If you’ve ever been around Nhat you know GODDAMN why this FUCKING guy is SO special; THIS FUCKING GUY has an INSANE amount of music knowledge, THIS FUCKING GUY

  2. has an INSANE AMOUNT of knowledge of Sci-Fi and B-Movie’s, and YES, THIS FUCKING GUY has impeccable taste in sweaters. You combine all that and a FUCKING ROCKIN ASS Pho-Stash and that MUTHA FUCKA WILL ROCK ANY HOUSE OFF IT’S FOUNDATION.
