Gröûp X: Arabian Rap Sensations


Group X are an extremely controversial (and funny!!) hip-hop group who masquerade as 'Arabian Rap Sensations' and cannot seem to speell very ghood. In actual fact the members are from Georgia, USA. They have two independantly released records and an upcoming live DVD.
Chances are, you will not hear Group X on many radio stations around the world. Most of the lyrics are... err... a little course.. And the latest album is called 'Stepping on the Crowtche owf Your American President'. But the internet community has given Group X a cult following.
Various Flash animators have visualised Group X's songs. The tradition being, the characters in the videos are all stickmen. I think this goes back to what Luke said in the lecture about the decentralised/unstable models of digitisation. And also the sense of the internet as a culture or a community. The internet has done for this group what no record label could ever do.
Check out the videos, they are very funny....

Just out of curiousity. Was one of rappers just recently fired from his job as baggage handler at an US airport?
