This song, “Outer Space” by Mr. Kneel, is a remix of my song “Outer Space”.
Mr. Kneel is a children’s hip-hop artist based out of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. He is an incredible improvisational rapper and beat boxer. The first time I ever saw him perform he free-styled about the people in the audience. I remember what he rapped about me:
Dino has the wisdom, his mind is like yoda
I have not met his wife, but I know she teaches yoga
And then he moved on to the next person and rapped about their baseball cap. Watching Mr. Kneel improvise is like watching a magic trick. You are surprised, grinning from ear to ear and in wondrous awe of how he does it.
