Finesse & the shark, connecting the dots ...

The greatest rap video ever:... or at least in recent memory. England's DJ Format teams up with Reuben Fleischer and a breakdancing shark to produce a pretty sublime piece of silliness (Quicktime).

Damn it - the search tool is worthless ... Ah well, it made me smile, and maybe somebody missed it the first time around ...

And that ain't just no dude in a shark suit. That's Charlie Tuna of Jurrasic 5.

Yeah, this is that what rocks.

Ah, Charlie Tuna. Always coming back with a-fish-in-sea. Great video.

The album, Music for the Mature B-Boy, is also quite good - if you like the style.

Vicious Battle Raps, featuring Abdominal, is worth the price of the album.

sorry, but the best rap video ever was the one for "Neva Eva."

Lovin' it. Every video should have a rapping shark.

I was surprised to see that the bear is the best dancer, I would have expected far more from the tiger.

I've gotta say, I've checked this out three times now. I'm gonna go buy the album.

It's Chali 2na you effing wannabes! When I met him rather than enthusing about how good the J5 show I saw was, I just babbled something ridiculous about Roots Manuva. Oops! Somehow I missed the previous two threads so ta very much.

Chali 2na is GOD.

Major ups to Chali 2na, he has the vocal artillery.

He's the verbal Herman Munster.
