    I was contemplating the nature of hip hop(quite possibly my favorite type of music), and I realized that, as important as the lyrics are. The overall feel is equally important. Verily, I have been listening to japanese underground hip hop lately and, despite not understanding what they are saying 99% of the time, I still enjoy it, more so than lots of american hip hop. So this got me thinking about how I might go about creating a rap using an unconventional approach that focused more on rhythm and feel than lyrics. While discussing it with a friend, the concept of a binary rap was presented. I loved it. So, 2 days later, here it is.

    I had a listen. I think you're right - the lyrics are often just a distraction. I actually liked it!
  3. thats pretty beast. it's all about the flow... french rap is also pretty cool, from what i've heard.

    That should be how all computers transfer information.

    I guess I overestimated the geek factor of these boards. I figured at least someone would give a shot at translating it.

    It is a haiku in english, if any geeks want to take a whack at it. Otherwise I'll just post the lyrics in a couple days.

    Thanks for listening.

    that's a lot of ones and zeros... I was almost tempted to try and hack it but naaaah....

    Gets little boring after awhile. Little changes or variations? To the beat and to the flow. Or something.
