First Rap Published

Just published my first rap; it's about chess Tongue Out

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."

    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.

    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]

    Also you have to do proper rapper movements, and speak even quicker

    Ok, this has already made my day.

    Can not take you seriously anymore. Well, maybe I neither took you seriously before Tongue Out

    I think 50 cents and Eminen are now panicking for the new breakthrough. Will they be dethroned by Davy D?
