Karanastic – The self proclaimed and largely unknown “Internet’s Best Rapper” has been recording songs independently since 2004. What started as a challenge soon became a lifelong interest. While the early stuff was pretty rough, it consistently and constantly improved through time as I honed my craft. This hard-hitting, mostly upbeat rap music with a cynical twist is about life, the universe, the media, conspiracy theories, video games, and a swarm of other nonsense that consumes our fragile world.
Music is one of my creative outlets and I try to make it sound like something I would listen to. Gotta stay funny, sarcastic, over the top, condescending, slightly impressive, but most importantly – be myself. No mumble rap, autotune or gimmicks. Deliver those fire bars and rap tight. People who don’t like rap music enjoy Karanastic, but people who do enjoy it even more.
I make songs from the unique perspective of life as a thirty-something year old middle-class business professional with a passion for dropping fire bars. I don’t know anything about hustling or the gangsta life, although I hear it’s rather intriguing. I spend entirely too much time philosophizing about living in the Matrix and getting angry about cable news. Often lost within the depths of the internet, this West Coast rapper from the North East proudly admits to getting inspiration from pro-wrestling, Pokemon cards and the local brewery.
Remember – I keep it real so you don’t have to.
Enough talk, it’s time for the music. Here are some recent songs I’ve created. Give em a listen and see if it catches your fancy.

Lyric of the Moment
Wolves at my back and they grinding teeth – cause they hate free speech when I speak my piece – expose the evil – stare at the eye of the beast”
