Your Performance Is Mop The Stage
The creation of the hip-hop skit maybe a more delicate art than the creation of a cohesive album. Some of the most gifted artists have created the most inane, unnecessary skits. Even worse, the hiphop skit is too often offensive or self stroking like College Dropout. Some are just confusing. Not mentioning names, but your initials are MM...Food.
The Native Tongues did skits well. Especially gifted were Prince Paul, De La, and Dres of Black Sheep. This made the dialogue of De La Soul Is Dead the beautiful wrapping paper covering the perfect gift that was the album's actual music. The Wu had some heat: 'They probably took the tape" alongside Liquid Swords' samurai story and ODB's "Remember when we used too...."
The only cat makin' skits of late that get me chucklin' is a Jamaica, Queens, Unsigned Hype winner. In addition to making some mean hip-hop, Mr. Complex writes a mean skit.
