I just got hip to this brother with the camera. I was moved on a 2 minute clip and began doing my research and realized this is not just some ordinary man with a camera but someone who deep down cares and desires change. He is a former graff artist and then became a subject of an HBO special as well as a TED talk which I suggest you watch. Also peep his site!
I first caught glimpse of Reggie Watts as part of Maktub. I opened for these guys way back in the early 00’s. Check out his brilliant ability to remix and recreate our various ways of communication. Reggie tackles comedy but incorporates music and beatboxing to create a “what am I watching cause I love it” kind of sensation. Earlier this year I got to sit down with Reggie and talk about the 5 songs that have inspired him over the years as part of KCRW’s Guest Dj Project. My highlight is when we both beatboxed and recreated Tears For Fears “Everybody Wants To Rule The World“. Listen to it here and check out Reggie’s amazing TED talk.
