Old King Cole Younger is Cole from Black Lips side project. Blunt Fang: Once a member of backpack eccentric crew Supreeme, Atlanta’s Negashi Armada has been reborn as Blunt Fang. With “Crystal Power” he mumbles decidedly post Based raps about H. Rap Brown and FAO Schwartz while pacing awkwardly in front of a blue screen with a very Spirit of Truth swagger. He also smokes an amethyst crystal like it’s a crack rock (word to Ray from Slam. In an interview with Creative Loafing the ATLien broke down his mission statement of not ever sounding like Outkast. If that’s the measuring stick then “Crystal Power” can only be seen as a grand triumph. Eli Porter is an amateur rapper who is best known for his performance in a high school rap battle that later became a viral video on YouTube. Several video remixes and image macros were inspired by his odd lyrics and mannerisms. While it has been speculated that he is mentally retarded, he has publicly denied this accusation. In 2003, Eli appeared on the Chamblee High School freestyle rap program “Iron Mic” to engage in a rap battle against fellow amateur rapper “Envy.” Eli’s stunned expressions, lyrics like “I’m the best mayne- I diiid it”, and long pauses made his performance rather memorable. The battle ended in a 2-1 decision resulting in a win for Envy.
