Japanese Cartoon are a punk band who use fake English accents. Their lead singer is a guy you might have heard of called Lupe Fiasco. Wait. What?!
It’s an unlikely combination but it definitely works. Lupe sounds right at home over the pounding guitar-based beats and that fake accent is kinda badass. If you’re going to switch genres, this is how you do it. Don’t make a half-arsed attempt that ends up sounding shit whatever it’s categorised as. *cough* Lil Wayne *cough*
