Two from chap hop

So, I was doing a Wikipedia search on "steampunk -- musicians" (or something similar), and happened upon a musical genre called "chap hop".

Basically, rapping about things that are English -- tea and cricket and such.

The two best-known proponents, apparently:

  • Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer

  • Professor Elemental

Good stuff! :)


ADDED: For an American who lived near the border of Canada, and now lives in Australia -- the following is **golden**.

I'm gonna have to check out this ''Baba'' guy.
