Yeah, the forecast is.. partially cool

Money Mark - Hand In Your Head
(From Push The Button album; 1998)

Best quality video upload I've ever seen of this masterpiece. A MTV2 favourite from 1998 which should be an AM radio mainstay forever ever. A perfect pop song from a most unlikely place: the Beastie Boys' keyboard noodler guy.

Speakin' of whom, I've loved the Beasties' So What'Cha Want for damn near 30 years but only just noticed that Ad-Rock is wearing a The Fever t-shirt in the video. Strong period-detail synergy for a song which mentions Spoonie Gee and references Wild Style.

A parallel universe where Money Mark collaborated with Einer Bankz.

anyone who plays ukulele grew up with parents who were too supportive

DJ Fresh once had an IG Stories clip of a beat he made with Einer Bankz and it sounded pretty great tbf. Don't think it's ever been released.

to be fair polo g's "rapstar" is a pretty unobnoxious use of the ukulele and that shit went number 1 so what do i know

madlib was able to make an accordion cool... who will unleash the rap bagpipe upon the world?

omfg behrighrwewfhjk his accent... odd future rode pretty hard for relapse but the accent is making me wonder if this was a direct inspiration on the skits off future's "monster" and "56 nights," which are absent from the streaming rereleases for some reason i can't imagine hahaha

tyler the creator still does the flow at 2:11 im dying

It's reslly saying something when the sound of a bagpipe is preferable to the sound of Eminem's voice.

Australians are the only ppl who've ever made bagpipes acceptable imho: AC/DC's It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock 'N' Roll) and the lighthouse ghost's version of Danny Boy in the last episode of Round The Twist series 1.
