RJD2 is one of those cats that can do just about anything. If the guy wanted to step behind the mic and sing a whole album, I’d be there. If the guy wanted to do an entire instrumental album, I’m in. I got hooked in (I think) ’04 with Since We Last Spoke, and I’ve been a fan ever since. I have a lot of respect for artists you can’t pigeonhole, and RJ pretty much defies description. Plus, we were born in the same year four days apart. So there’s that.
Anyhow, the video for “Might as Well Step Forward”, a track from the (remix?) album Inversions of the Colossus, surfaced on AOL last week, and it’s pretty sweet. Featuring the dancing of the Quest Crew, it takes me back to the days when I was in elementary school and we laid out cardboard on the playground, calling ourselves breakdancing. Although if we tried to do any of these moves, we’d have either been in neck braces for a really long time or we’d have wound up quadriplegics. For those of you who are too ADD to watch a whole video-never fear, the video’s less than two minutes long.
