Nothing Like the First Time – Watsky

So, I found this. I’d like to point out that I am NOT a general fan of “comedy rap” but I know some of you are – I am sacrificing myself for you by posting this! This album is from George Watsky (aka Watsky), an American rapper/poet from San Francisco. Watsky performs slam poetry, and was featured on Season 6 of Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry on HBO, so he’s pretty good at what he does. The album entitled Nothing Like The First Time sees Watsky rapping over tracks with names that seem to poke fun at hip hop stereotypes and while I commend that, I’m not really feeling the actual rapping style, not to mention the seemingly generic sounding backing music. Still, this kind of rap caters for a specific type of crowd and they’ll definitely love it, especially Ninjas In Paris. If you enjoy this kind of thing, stream and download it below.
