Tom Waits: Rap Star

tom-waits-looking-suaveThis is just too cool. On February 17, ANTI- Records is releasing Spirit of Apollo, a sprawling, ambitious hip-hop album with heavy doses of Brazilian funk, the label’s first offering from the N.A.S.A. collective. The list of guest vocalists on the album is a thing of wonder: David Byrne, Kanye West, M.I.A., George Clinton, Santogold, Karen O., members of Jurassic 5 and Wu Tang Clan, and so many more.

But even that doesn’t prepare you for the sheer awesomeness of “Spacious Thoughts,” a creepy, menacing groover that finds the one and only Tom Waits growling and barking over a Kool Keith beat. It’s almost too good to be true. And you can download that particular song for free, thanks to the good folks at ANTI-.
