Girl Talk "Feed the Animal" Mash Up Videos

 

Cool, a new way to enjoy Girl Talk's latest EP, "Feed the Animals." One fan, Chris Beckman, has started to pick through The EP and make mashup videos for each of the tracks, he is already up to his 3 video:
"I'll continue to make these when I have a free evening every now and then. Hopefully I can do all the songs until the whole album has one long video mixtape."
I recommend subscribing to his Youtube page @ BunnyGreenHouse for more updates on when the other 11 videos are made/released. Source: Fimoculous

Nico The Beast gives CR some overdue Respect

 

Nico the BEastOur good friend at 33jones.com (Hip-Hop Blog), has told us some really cool news.

CertifiedRANDOM has been plugged in its 1st known Freestyle.  The rap is done by Philadelphia based Rapper, Nico The Beast.

His lyrics are on point as always, but you might want to pay attention, in particular, to the end of this next track. While name dropping a few of his favorite blogs over the Dr. Dre produced Gunz Come Out, Nico spits a line that made me El Oh El (IRL): "I wanna fuck / so go Wake Your Daughter Up." Peep:
