NYC via Philly-based artist, Jayson Musson, (previously), has periodically posted videos to Youtube for about a year now under the header “Art Thoughtz.” In the videos, Musson assumes the identity of satirical figure Hennessy Youngman, a hilarious HipHop head-cum-fine art critic. Youngman’s brand of satire is the best there is: “make fun of everyone and everything.” So far, Musson’s taken on art world figures as varied as Damien Hirst, Kehinde Wiley, and Marina Abromović, and applied his unique logic in lampooning concepts like institutional critique, surrealism, beauty, and socio/political art. Watch the latest “Art Thoughtz” after the jump. Read More >
Earlier this week I posted the Nephicide video featuring little kids projectile vomiting blood complete with black metal face paint. To round things out on the hip-hop side of things I present Yonkers by Tyler, The Creator. Watch Tyler play with giant insects, roll his eyes in the back of his head, have random nose bleeds, and most importantly vomit. If you’re not familiar with Tyler make sure to look him up. He’s part of ODD FUTURE WOLF GANG KILL THEM ALL (OFWGKTA), an LA hip-hop collective that has been getting some much deserved attention as of late. Watch the full video after the jump.

What’s even more awesome than Charles Barkley in a spacesuit, in space with lens flares? Maybe a video of him in a animated, auto tuned rapping, and going bonkers. Be amazed by the full video after the jump.
