Quarashi was perhaps one of the most entertaining hip-hop groups I’ve ever seen live and meeting them after the show was awesome as well, even though they spoke English like Borat. I love it when groups from outside of the US can come to America and get huge.

You see, Quarashi is a group from Iceland…yes the same country responsible for Bjork. They enjoyed some stardom in Reykjavik on their first 3 albums, but it’s when they made their international debut with Jinx that they became a somewhat household name in many countries. This is one of the tracks that appears on the album, but I’m not sure of the nautical nature of a song called “Baseline”. This album was essentially a ‘best of’ with 5 new tracks, but it was still a damn fine album and one I truly appreciate.
