Get the right rappers and they'll make it sound good - Saian Supa Crew (sp?)
sound fantastic on the Avalanches album "Since I Left You", even if its only
a tiny snippet of their work. Its a king of jumpy/choppy style, yet somehow
it keeps the poeticism (I might have just made that word up :-) of the
language intact. I like it, anyway :-)

I get the feeling that SSC arent really all that mainstream (I may be wrong,
I only really keep tabs on the UK music scene), but off the beaten track is
where all the best music comes from IMHO.
