When I first saw that this was turning into a rapper possibilities thread on the first page, my immediate thought was to suggest outkast. Now I see I am not the only one with that thought. That dude on the educated guesses thread that claims to be bff's with Adam Zack('s) should suggest the FUCK out of those ATLiens if they do go on tour.
Saw Gorillaz tonight. One of the best shows I've ever been too, and I usually don't like arena shows as much as shows at smaller venues. I doubt they'll still be touring in May, but they would have been sweet.

Have y'all checked out Kanye's "Runaway" short film on his website? As far as stuff coming from a mega star, it's pretty fucking wild. It reminds me of the "art pieces" that huge bands like Rolling Stones ("Sympathy For The Devil") and Led Zep ("Song Remains the Same") used to put out. They were simultaneously bad, good, pretentious, boring, interesting and seemed, against all odds, to get better with repeated viewings. It's that healthy mix of the fact that they are so big they really didn't need to make it. Let alone put in time or effort (and ridiculous acting skills) into making it, which is kinda cool. Mixed with, "who the fuck do these people think they are to imagine we want to watch any of this shit?"
Anyway, I fully dig this Kanye film. But beware the metaphors are deep, such as phoenixes who are either representing his rebirth, or just a super rad costume found in wardrobe. My point being, it ain't no world changer. But fuck it's fun!
The dancer during the actual "Runaway" song outro is a sight to behold, watch this thing if you can, plus the chunes sound great.
