George Watsky

Have you heard of this guy?

In case you haven't, you should've. Belive me, you've been missing out on something.
A little historie of this guy.

George Watsky is a poet and rapper from San Francisco, California.
Watsky performs slam poetry, and was featured on Season 6 of Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry on HBO.
Watsky’s talents began to receive national and international acclaim in 2006 when he was the Youth Speaks Grand Slam Poetry Champion,
and was also named Brave New Voices International Poetry Slam Champion.

Watsky's poetry incorporates political and social themes. In 2006, in the midst of "a lively performance" to a "sold-out crowd",
Watsky "likened politicians behavior to a common bar pick-up line" and "won the night's top score".

In Summer, 2011 Watsky announced his new mixtape titled "A New Kind of Sexy", which was released on Monday, August 1, 2011, at 4:00 AM Pacific Time.
In the weeks leading up to the release, a track would be released each Monday. One of the tracks on the album was called "4AM Monday".

Watsky graduated from Emerson College in 2010 and has achieved newfound fame with his viral YouTube video "Pale kid raps fast." (see under)
He was featured on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on January 24, 2011, performing a slightly modified version of that rap. (see under)

It's not too late to become a fanboy, do it.

Pale kid raps fast: This video made him famous, pretty much. The video on youtube is now almost on 13million views, wich is pretty crazy.

But keep in mind, like he said himself - "you know, being the fastest rapper is not something that I'm interested in."
It's not so much about Watskys speed, as it is his lyrics. Seriously, try to get some lyrics while listening to the song, your mind will be blown.

This is my favourite at the moment. It's just so catchy. <3

This one is great too. You know what? I love all of them, I'll shush.
