British nerd rapper Dan Bull has always been a fan of file lockers. Sites like Megaupload helped him distribute his first album – until it was taken down in early 2012. Fortunately for him and for the rest of us, Kim Dotcom went on to launch Mega, a similar cloud storage site, but with encryption and privacy at its core. Dan’s a fan of that too, so he rapped about it.
Warning to anyone at work or of a sensitive disposition, this track is loud and features plenty of profanity and is therefore probably NSFW.[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvWR6C0VvY0′]
Dan makes some great points in this, perhaps mostly to do with Dotcom himself. As I’ve said in a few previous pieces here at KG, whether you love him or hate him, the man’s standing up to internet based tyranny and that’s only going to help us in the long run.
Of course this isn’t the only Dotcom and Mega related rap Dan has put out, as just two days after Kim Dotcom’s home was raided in 2012 and his file locker shut down, he released the following seminal (both definitions) track:[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tw3DjJJhEjM’]
KitGuru Says: While this latest Mega rap isn’t my personal favourite of Dan’s work, it can still get you hopped up on a Monday, which is impressive in itself.
