Yeah, I don't even know how I discovered this, maybe some of you have heard of it. I checked it in order to get some laughs but what I found was some of the most exciting hip hop I've heard in years. How the fuck did this guy manage to take the corniest subject matter and make a legitimately good rap album is beyond me but listen for yourself, I hope you will be as pleasantly surprised as I was. Also the production is top notch, taking the game's melodies and making awesome beats out of them.
I hope this spawns an entire genre of "nerd hop" because I think it's awesome.

A rap album based on Final Fantasy VII, don't laugh, it's amazing
word, this shit just seems so hard to pull off right but hey if he keeps doing concept albums based on videogames like this i'll be happy just hearing him
" I came in to laugh but yer kinda right - they kinda do that right. But a generation of "nerd hop"? I dunno I'm filing this under "exception" not "rule" :) "
" ive never played any FF game so i wont have an idea what they're talking about.... nuts ! "i think you can get an idea of it just following the lyrics. and never played an FF game cmon! Even I who wasn't much of a fan of JRPGs finished FF7 for the sake of at least being able to say if it was good or not. Still think it's overrated but I think this album will definitely change the way I see this game forever.
