Yeah. It's a great song. Came out years ago. Any particular reason for the post?

Jimbob took teh Q right out of my mouth, been a lot of great remixes too that could have added to this post.

Didn't think that I had to have a reason, other than that I was exposed to it recently, thought it was great, and wanted to share. If it's "old meme is old" or whatever, whatever.

I hate fan-made lyric videos btw. The Ugly. It burns.

Great beat, but their use of 'fuck' is nothing when compared to the Rubberbandits.

I'll never forget watching a friend lip-syncing this; total character. But yeah, what's the reason for the post?

Yeah? Fuck you, too.

Since you've brought The Brooklyn Funk Essentials to The Blue, here, for your listening pleasure, is their version of Pharoah Sander's "The Creator Has A Master Plan."

Yo! Brooklyn!

I like the video. I think it's meant to be a Powerpoint slideshow in which key words from the speaker's presentation are highlighted for clarity.

Worth it just for the rubber bandits...8.5 million views and nobody has posted it on Facebook. Praise be to the matthowie

The newest Rubberbandits (well as of a month or two ago) is also a trip. Warning: deals frankly with race issues in present day Ireland, and speaks clearly to the trials and travails of street youth. Orrrrrr something.

A great alternative to linking extremely poor YouTube videos that actively detract from the music is Grooveshark

metafilter: where asking, "Why did you post that?" is, somehow, not ironic.

I had no idea this was set to music. First heard it here, track 18 by Sylvester. AllMusic gives just a taste of the original; there might be a version of the poem in its entirety somewhere out there in the dark ether.

Looking for the full poem led me here, where I learned that "Everton Sylvester... is lead poet with bands Brooklyn Funk Essentials and Searching for Banjo."

Thanks zorseshoes, I never would have known that. Always wondered who the heck the guy was. His voice used to freak me out every time I listened to that track.
