"Strange vessels. Maim when I wrestle. Throw Grizzlies. Bill Bixby..."

I misquoted that dude U.G. in the comments to his video for The Mystic a few years ago, so he corrected me in the comments.  
The sales pitch:
‘Portals’ (iTunes Pre-Order): bit.ly/iTunesPortals Oftentimes, it’s the most understated touches that can have a lasting impact. Like the hints of psychedelia and otherworldly imagery that subtly appear throughout the video for “The Mystic,” the raw and haunting single from Brooklyn stalwart, U.G. Also known as one-half of the Cella Dwellas, the BK spitter has launched his campaign in support of his highly anticipated solo debut, Portals. And in doing so, he’s taking listeners and now viewers to another dimension with “The Mystic” video, which is produced by IDE, who also co-directed the video with Jise of The Arsonists fame. Together, IDE and Jise, along with special effects editor, Kenneth Shumaker of TimeBomb Pics, embrace the otherworldly vibes emanating from the track, while showcasing U.G. in his element—rapping his ass off wherever and whenever. They also enlisted a slew of like-minded individuals, such as Swave Sevah, Poison Pen, Dro Pesci, and IDE himself, who all make an appearance. The result is a viewing experience that’s both mind-bending but also very straight-up Hip-Hop, and that’s exactly what makes it so effective. Check out the visuals, and then head over to iTunes and pre-order U.G.’s long awaited debut, Portals, which drops Oct. 21 via Creative Juices Music. If you’d like to own the album in the physical form, head over to CreativeJuicesMusic.com, where you could also pre-order the ‘Portals Package Deal,’ for just $45 (refer to details below).

For the record, I said "Transvessels" instead of "strange vessels".  The first time U.G. corrected me I didn't know you could edit comments.  But then he corrected me again today.

And I fixed it.

I know that Transvessels doesn't really mean anything, but I have a record for getting rap lyrics wrong.  As I get older, I am able to admit that without being embarrassed.  

I get excited sometimes.

The Mystic is PACKED with comics references (as well as a reference to the Will Smith superhero movie Hancock).  Everyone knows I'm a silly sucker for comics references in legit street rap lyrics...

Anyways, I photoshopped some lyrics on this drawing of Thor from my sketchbook before I realized he probably said "poor grammar" not "war grammar"...  

U.G. didn't correct me on that part, though.  Maybe he liked "war grammar" better?

Maybe not.  

And so... I included the sales pitch above so you can cop U.G.'s solo album Portals. Yeah, I'm late, but I hear that's better than never.
