Here's something cool, some of you may know of that amazing poem by Mr. Poe, entitled The Raven?

The Raven Poem (http://www.heise.de/ix/raven/Literature/Lore/TheRaven.html)

The Simpsons did a take on it, and now the Rap world has too!

(No idea who that kid is, just listen to the track!)
I admit. Usually, I can't stand rapping, but this has caught me! I think it's great! :o :D

I love the poem and I've seen the Simpsons episode...LOL,but that song eluded me!Is that really a song or did those guys made it?

Now that to me is what proper rap is, i.e. circa 1980, before it turned crap. The video however is a prime lesson in how to look like a ******.

I think it is a song, I searched through other clips of it, and 'McLars' has done live gigs and sung it at them!
It's clever, how he's mixed the poem with contemporary allusions, like Paris Hilton!

Well that's 'Ushered' in a new low of what's not sacred these days. Mr. Poe is no doubt trying to claw his way out from grave as we speak. ;)
