The Best and The Whitest (Pt. 2)

A couple more crackers out there grindin...

Aesop Rock
Long Island Native Aesop Rock is not only white, but jewish. However, he's managed to overcome these natural disadvantages to become a respected member of the indie-rap scene. His rhymes don't always make sense, and a little tough to follow with his rapid-fire delivery. It sounds good though, and the more I listen to him, the more I like him. 

Brother Ali
Brother Ali is as white as they come. He's an albino. On the subject of his race, he's said that, though he is genetically white, it is from black people that he learned his most valuable life lessons, and with whom he most often identifies. Despite this, he claims that he is neither black nor white, but a freak in a league all his own.
