Since I dont like rap, this is an interesting one. Its rare that in 20th century, some band can make music history.

Deaf rapper. That rap with sign language.

Indeed. For just that I really hope that people in Finland realize that and vote Signmark to eurovision contest from qualifications.

Overcoming barriers to say what you need/want to say through the universal language of music. There wasn't anything about this video I didn't like. Thanks Emperism!

Well, since that you are 15, I get that "dumb" thing ignored :).

Think about it m8, deaf man? ???, use empathy m8, wonder if you cant hear anything what would you do? That dude is unique in his stuff, made history... you try to be a guitar virtuoso...well, you must really do well when you are goin to be like he and make something new. Dumbness is very very far of that one.

Cheers!

I don't really get it. He's just signing the words that the rappers are saying isn't he?

I think people like the late Jeff Healey are more impressive to be honest.

And by the way Emperism, it's the 21st Century, and has been for the last nine years! :P

Actually BHS, I think it's the other way around... :P I think he's got the rappers up there rapping with him so people can completely connect to what he's trying to do. The fact that he's rapping with sign language is interesting in and of itself, but having the backups there is a good way of getting across the musical message that he's trying to convey, even to those who might not understand sign language.

@ guitarmastergod,
Funny thing about that, It seems that no matter what life my throw at you there is an inbred thing that keeps you going, wanting to live. I suppose for some people that drive is not as strong, but for most it is. I know quite a few people who have disadvantages who live everyday without complaint. Here's a guy, might be the most brilliant man on the planet with just about every problem a person could have and he doesn't want to kill himself. (Steven Hawking)



So, count your blessings and buy a ticket to deaf rapper's next show!

Haha BHS, damn that the time goes! I start to understand why they call me a "Little slow" xD

Yeah, Jeff was great, but he was blind. he still heard the sound and the rhytm... Like Stevie wonder, he was also blind, but music is "mostly" sounds, so hearing is quite important thing in that.

I think the most important components of this guy's "music" is the words that he's forming with his hands and the rhythm. I'm sure that when he gets up on stage he can feel the vibrations of the sound against his body.
