One in the chamber, 42 in the clip.
If a skinny English guy busting out an impressive and fast-paced rap while he reads aloud the words to a well-known science fiction book and transitioning into an equally impressive freestyle based on the same book sounds like a scenario that could only be generated in the bowels of Zaphod Beeblebrox's Infinite Improbability Engine (or the one he stole, anyway), you'd be right. He's rapping the words of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, by Douglas Adams. Specifically, he's rapping a chapter dealing with the series' depressed robot, Marvin The Paranoid Android, before breaking out into freestyle. As unlikely as it seems though, like a curious whale and cynical flower pot hurdling towards the ground, this rap is brief but definitely very real.
The man in the video is UK rapper Just Muz (aka Christian Foley), and the music he's rapping over is "93 'til Infinity" by Souls of Mischief. I look forward to seeing his future work with Audible.com.
