Rasul The Nobody

On the evening of 2/9/07, my band played a benefit show along with a gospel choir, an african fusion group, and a local emo/indie band. Perhaps the most interesting act we shared the stage with was Rasul The Nobody. Apparently, he is the VA grand champion slam poet, rubs elbows with Beau Sia, and has supposedly crushed Sage Francis in a freestyle battle (a humiliated Mr. Francis requested that Rasul remove the video from youtube, otherwise I would post a link). He dropped everyone's collective jaw when he busted out his blazingly quick and ferocious freestyle madness over-top a live drummer; he drops more syllables in a minute than Bush drops bombs in a... well, who really knows. The point is: Def Poetry Jam better listen up, Rasul is on fie-ah.
