When Leonard Nimoy passed away on February 27th everyone in the sci-fi world paid their respects in their own unique way. No one, however, did so quite as uniquely as CT hip-hop artist 5:am, who made an incredible tribute song.
Actually, 5:am's tribute should qualify as THREE songs, as it starts out with a traditional tribute to the life of Nimoy done over a beat that samples the Star Trek theme, then moves to an interpolation of "(Sittin' on) The Dock of the Bay," and finally closes with a Spock themed version of "Ruff Ryders Anthem."
5:am's creativity is insane, and the lyrics are both dope, and informative, especially if you want to know some great facts about Nimoy's life. I can't imagine anyone not liking this.
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
