The Chronicles of Professor Elemental

hey everyone,

Hip Hop may have been born in New York, but it's traveled a hell of a lot since then. Hip Hop has no borders now and you can find great music being made all over the world.

Professor Elemental is an English MC who I'm happy to have gotten to know a bit. My intro to his music was "Fighting Trousers", which I instantly dug. I love the unusual approach to a battle rap song, and the good Professor may be playing a part but I'll be damned if he can't rhyme!

Don't believe me? Go check him out on Bandcamp,. Some of my favorite tracks; the Fighting Trousers remix by Mr Simmonds, Alright, and Pay me a Visit with the great Count Bass D!

The good Professor asked me to work with him on an upcoming project, and you can guess what I said - right? ;-)

More on that another day, let's move on.

Elemental is working on a video series called "The Chronicles of Professor Elemental", and is looking to crowd fund the project and keep it independent. If you're into it, check out the project's pitch page and consider contributing to the cause.

Thanks in advance for supporting the project, and stay tuned for more information on the project the good Professor and I will collaborate on.

Man, Fighting Trousers has a great hook to it. I do like the cut of his tweed. The drawing rocks as well, Mike.

Thanks, man! Glad you dug the music and the art.
