I actually have the book he wrote in real life for his child in the attitude of Shel Silverstein (Upside Downside Up). I always, personally, liked his videos and found them amusing, and the book itself is just a really well done collection of silly poetry that, like Shel Silverstein, sometimes becomes downright profound. An example is just the short poem below, which is from the book:I've never seen a shooting star,but I've seen an alien.I've seen alot of clones,But I ain't never seen a twin.I've never felt an earthquake,but I've felt a giant pass.And that's what I wrote downon my report for science class. It's silly, but I like the play on fantasy in it too and how we view things. Shel Silverstein did similar things in his poetry when he was alive. So, while I agree with some people's complaints about his vocal skills, I've always felt they were passable enough that his lyrics and wit came through anyway. Other Belf rappers....not so much. Of course, Oxhorn and Wowcrendor are in categories all by themselves too. :)
