Just published my first rap; it's about chess
I expect some folks on here will enjoy it. I have a few more that I've already written.
In other news, this past week, my friend Jesse Kraai finally published his first novel; it's also about chess! Jesse worked on it for three years, and I read it in three days. It's really a fantastic piece of literature by any measure. I'm so thankful to Jesse for writing it.
It's available on Amazon (ebook or paperback): just search for "Lisa Chess Novel."
Well its a different style to the chess vids thats for sure.
yes, you'll love it :-)
I haven't seen Jesse Kraai in a long time (although he did follow my (now dead) Twitter). Now I know, perhaps, where he has been. I MUST buy his book.
not sure yet :-)
Lookin forward to your next one Dave! When's it comin?
You did an ace/brilliant job David.. really dug it.
Would be great though if you could get a hoodie that had chess pieces all over it.. hehe
hahaha... I've seen the other rap
[I've erased the gif myself cuase I thought the animation was very distracting -at least it was to me- It was an animation of Nicolas Cage doing a facepalm]
thanks for the advice :-P
Also you have to do proper rapper movements, and speak even quicker
but you forgot to wear the proper outfit!!
Ok, this has already made my day.
Can not take you seriously anymore. Well, maybe I neither took you seriously before
I think 50 cents and Eminen are now panicking for the new breakthrough. Will they be dethroned by Davy D?
This was awesome David! You inspired me to create my own and I even used the same beat as you...check it out!
you can't trust looks too much :-)
I thought that Danny looks more a rapper than you, David
i don't have an mc name; i think for the purpose of these rap songs, i am "david" or "dpruess".
david that was very entertaining. what's your mc name?
David, you are crazy in the good sense of the word!
yeah, that last verse has french+chinese :-D
nice. that was awesome.
loved the french and chinese(?) lyrics!
