Modern Man | George Carlin

21 07 2008

For many in hip-hop who revere the lyrical mastery of folks like Jay-Z, Nas, Ice Cube, Lil’ Wayne and others, nobody and we mean NOBODY could bend words to their will like the late comedian, George Carlin.

In his routine, “Modern Man,” performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 2006, Carlin showed that his talents as a wordsmith supreme eclipse many who do it for a living. Revered by both the comic fraternity and several generation of fans, Carlin is and will continue to be sorely missed.

To borrow a phrase from Public Enemy’s Chuck D, Carlin was a true “rhyme animal!”
