Gangsta Rap, Japanese Style! (Riva side Jamm)

Since my friends all know I’m into Japanese things, they often show me stuff they think will amuse me or interest me. So the other day, someone hit me with a YouTube link for a Japanese gangsta rap video. ^_^ I’d already seen it a couple of years ago but what the heck — I still enjoy this song and get a kick out of the Japanese going gangsta. *lol* Despite the fact that the background music and beats sound like they are from a cheap electronic music keyboard, it has a catchy beat and the rappers have a pretty good flow. Be warned, they start this with an English profanity to prove they are truly hardcore!

The song is “Riva side Jamm” and the rappers are Moss.Key, Dirty R.A.Y, and Jammy. I keep saying I need to look into buying the CD. For a while there, you could only purchase it from places that wouldn’t sell outside of Japan. I need to see if they’ve gone more mainstream now.

    That song sounds like it was made with a Roland Groovebox or and Akai MPC. I’d almost bet money on it.
