Hear A Legendary Brooklyn MC Attempt To Rap With An Australian Accent

Remember how you used to hang out with your pals, wondering outloud when somebody would make a rap record where the MC would promise, “I’m going to come Australian, then I’m going to come Reggae, and then I’m going to come Hip Hop”? Turns out that Sir Ibu did that in 1987 on the b-side to Divine Force‘s “Holy War (Live)”. Admittedly, it sounds more like Dick Van Dyke‘s portrayal of a cockney chimney sweep in Mary Poppins, but as he says, it’s definitely “very unusual”. Come to think of it, his “reggae” style isn’t that hot either.

‘Somethin Different’ might be my least favorite Divine Force song. Did you track I-Bu down yet, Robbie?

Not yet, I imagine it’s going to take a while.

Peace to the god I B U

last time he hit my cell he was relocated in Seattle and that was 2008. If anything, reach out to Born Scientific Freedom (Freedom Williams) and see if you can track Ibu down in 2014.

sounding like a very good impression of Bionic from London Posse!

Two 12s and 1 solo shot from IBU was never enough.
