So, it turns out my friend's ex(?)-boyfriend (crazy/brilliant homeless guy) is an accomplished yet undeniably strange musician. I believe him to be the first truly 'outsider' hip-hop musician I have ever come across.
I done a blogs post about him, which I may as well JAG because you can download his CD I've got from there:
If you have any opinions, thats great, please share them, but more to the point- anyone else know of any 'outsider' type hip-hop?
Actually the lesbian rap duo I saw live once might constitute another example of the genre, but they were more just in the 'charmingly shit' side of the spectrum.
