Featured Group: Noodle

The Composer's Corner first ever featured rap group is...Off_his Noodle, AKA Adam O'Brien. Adam is a true student and devotee of his craft: while I was trying to teach him some concepts of good flow like you might find in my analyses, he was giving me his own perspective as a rapper:

"A side from being an MC I am also a screenwriter and its helped me tremendously in honing my craft as an MC. I rarely ever suffer from writer's block and there are a lot of elements that crossover from screenwriting to rapping. In fact, Eminem really took the time to hone his screenwriting abilities whether he was conscious of it or not, his story through the Slim Shady LP all the way up to Recovery is as carefully crafted of a story as you can get. Stan is a movie within itself, I believe story telling, character, and substance are few of the most important aspects when it comes to distinguishing someone as a great MC aside from the Musical stand point. Obviously if the music ain't there and you sound like garbage, no one is gonna want to get into your story, and there are artists who have proved that you don't really need the story/substance element to make it (Wocka Flocka, Lil B, Soulja Boy, Mike Jones) but as far as longevity is concerned I believe you can't keep spitting about nothing and expect to be around as long as Em, Jay, or Nas."

With that, his most recent project is as follows. Even if you're not here for music, you might find the video funny as hell. The posse sing-along chorus doesn't happen enough in rap, even though it always comes off well: Scenario, Bring da Ruckus, etc., etc...
