And then yoga took over hip hop! OK, not quite. But we’ve seen the likes of Common Jay-Z and 50 Cent give shout outs, and even Eminem dabbled for Recovery. So rappers aren’t exactly traipsing around in Om bling and gold studded mat slings. Not yet! But check out this new single “Yoga” from emcee Jesse Abraham‘s latest project and see if you don’t feel the yoga-rapa-revolution on its way.
To get the gist of the track, here’s what Jesse has to say:
“It was fun to write a song about Yoga. The discipline that strives to assist in the attainment of perfect spiritual tranquility, is a sublime act of physical and spiritual grace. This song respectfully pays homage to this subject area, as well as coitus. ”
Stick with it through the second verse.
My girl she be doin’ yoga.
So now she bending and twisting, perfecting precision.
She looked at me and I said “I respect your fitness”
She got persistent. I’m lucky enough to be a witness.
But I’m acting like a Jewish kid on Christmas, what is this?
Enough of this distance
Ready or not here I come
But I didn’t stretch enough so I think that I sprained my thumb
This is the first single from unsigned hip hop artist Jesse Abraham’s Bars and No Bull Mixtape, produced by Spills, due out October 12th via DJBooth.
