I always thought it’d be fun to rap on mainstream beats I liked, so I did. Stream the player above. If you want to read an interview I did recently as well, please continue here to Imprint Culture Lab.
This is the second song I’ve written so far for “Heads On Sticks”. (Note: And I just finished “Onslaught” last week, so that will be released first).
“Jesus Was A Gook”
by Michael Nhat
Hero’s John Wayne mine’s Ron Ridenhour
the man who found the power in himself to report the cowards
showered the Congress with letters about a Massacre
in My Lai, if you haven’t heard of the
1968 mass murder by whom?
the United States of America Calley and his troops
who came to murder 3 hundred and forty seven
unarmed civilians mostly women and children
living in poverty – such an atrocity
but nobody gives a fuck because they’re Vietnamese Continue reading “Jesus Was A Gook”
Are you ready for some Prince? I know I am not that great of a singer, but I like to do it for fun. Yesterday from start to finish I completed a cover of his “Beautiful Ones”. I didn’t use any guitars or any live instruments, just a computer. I’m pretty sure If any hardcore Prince fans here this, they’ll condemn me to hell for destroying it. I don’t care I like it. Let the yelling and wailing begin.
Here’s a new hip-hop video filmed & edited by my friend Jason Clark in Los Angeles and produced by Jbts (www.lunaishoney.com) in 2009. He gave me a CDR at work (we’re both ex-American Apparel employees) with a bunch of beats and this loop stuck out to me. I loved it immediately, but it would be years before it seen light of day. I added the stuff at the end and recorded the vocals in 2010.

I made this with a roommates Korg Triton in 2004. He had it under his bed and I don’t think he ever used it when we lived together. In a week I think I churned out 5 cdr’s of music ready for vox. In 2008, my friends at Vermont House were starting to inquire about my music. We’d been friends for awhile and I never told them I was a musician before. So after they found out, I started listening to my old cdr’s and decided to finally write and record vocals to this one and about 5 others. Another was “Here’s a Mop to Clean the Floor”.
This is me and Danny Louangxay from Brannigans Law practicing for our show at The Smell in downtown LA.
