Jesus Was A Gook

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

Some people’s

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”

The 6th Full-length album “Melt”

Produced by Michael Nhat

This is my last Vintage Rap album. I just released three in a row including Swimming to Cambodia. These beats were made in Clinton, Iowa 2006-2007 while visiting my adopted family. They are my top shelf selections. I have been wasting time sitting on them for years waiting to release them because I’m told it’s all about timing. Well, I realized I have a lot of beats. I need to stop wasting my time recording to beats that I think are okay, but someone else out there will love the beats and I should just record what I love. “Melt” to me is the best of the Vintage Rap albums, I have given it some of my most personal lyrics. Unfortunately, no label picked it up and I can not give it the financial push it deserves; but I don’t want to wait around because I have too many recordings waiting to go public and I’m not getting younger. So, I self-released it. I promise with every order I will send more than what you order, so if you have time, give it a listen below on my Bandcamp.

“Good Times” Music Video

Good Times

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.

New Video – Remember Working?

This is track 4 from my 4th album “Living Room”. I shot it this summer and edited it September 24th on DJ Maimes Laptop. I made the beat in 2006 sampling Skeeter Davis/Channel Live/NWA. I recorded the lyrics in 2010, but it wasn’t released until summer 2012.

“A Lot Of People Ask If That’s Her Real Name” LIVE

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.
