  1. Pardon my superficial comment but this guy would be a lot more appealing if I didnt have to look at him :)

    Cubicle jobs for the lose! Funny video clip but didn't really like the song. Yet another hiphop artist I never heard about! Thanks for the review.

    lovely x hivennn.

    He's got a nice flow on that track! Those are some thick Rasta dreads.

    >Whoopi Goldberg rapping.
    I lol'd hard.

    Hm, not sure what to think in regards to the music video but I didn't like the song that much. =T

    Mr Lif is a great rapper. My favourites are I Phantom, Return of the B-Boy, and the tracks he did with Edan.
