Two videos for today, linked together by little more than their prominent use of samurai swords. The first clip above from the Blue Scholars is off of their Cinemetropolis album, and pays homage to the director of Tokyo Drifter, Seijun Suzuki.
The second clip below comes from Samurai Outlaws, the duo of emcees Airospace and Cauzndefx. It samples the theme song from Samurai Champloo, a cartoon that, according to wikipedia at least, is heavily influenced by hip hop culture. I'll have to take wiki's word for it, as I still haven't recovered from that one time I watched the tentacle scene in Ninja Scroll.
