Watch out Daniel Radcliffe, you aren’t the only Blackalicious fan with a TV audience to perform to. A video has been released of an Odessa, Texas news reporter who has a very interesting way of warming up her vocal chords before going on the air.
Kim Powell flawlessly recites the Blackalicious hit “Alphabet Aerobics,” one of the most difficult rap songs imaginable. She even keeps up as the tempo quickens. It was October when Daniel Radcliffe took his shot at the track
during a “Tonight Show”
appearance. Now the question becomes who rapped it better?
Radcliffe obviously gets bonus points for having Jimmy Fallon as his hype man and his abundance of energy, but it can’t be denied just how easy Powell makes the feat look. It’s no trouble at all for her to spit out the words so quickly, even if she might lose track of the beat once or twice. After all, she didn’t have The Roots there playing the song for her like Radcliffe did.
So whose version of “Alphabet Aerobics” was best? That’s up to you to decide in the poll below.
