Who is the most eccentric figure in Hip Hop?

Postby rchecka » Fri Nov 23, 2007 11:14 am

Who do you think is the weirdest Hip Hop producer or MC or DJ? Eccentricity can mean creativity, mind you, so being nominated for this can be a compliment.

I always thought Bambaataa was a bit eccentric almost "Sun Raish" but not to that extreme. Which figure strikes you as odd but respectable due to his\her body of work?

Kool Keith is a fairly odd character by all accounts.

Flavor Flav, although those mentioned so far are all good contenders.

Bushwick Bill - Remember he used to wear like green overalls, a miners hat, and carry around a cabbage patch doll or somin one time on MTV Raps? Now he carries around a Chuckie doll. Sure there's more absurd characters out there, but no one mentioned him yet.

I don't know wether I'd call him eccentric but Biz Markie is one of those colourful characters in Hip Hop, I just love his terrible singing and anecdotes!
