Can Sadat X Make Wine Hip-Hop?

He's trying with True Wine Connoisseurs, YouTube's most entertaining wine-themed rap show

The experience was part of the inspiration for True Wine Connoisseurs, which has filmed dozens of episodes since debuting in 2009. The budget is minimal, and the guys don't expect to make money off it. Indeed, it hasn't yet caught fire on the Internet and now has to deal with some competition, in the form of Beastie Boy Mike D's new, much-more-staid wine blog on critic James Suckling's site. (Sample assessment: "The camphor and wet marble floor of a Hindu temple seamlessly blended with stone fruits wrapped up with still-tight acidity.")

Nonetheless, Tell says their program has been influential on hip-hop club owners, who have begun including wine in their open bars. "The crowd doesn't get so rowdy," he notes. As for Sadat, he insists wine culture has taught him much about both grapes and folks. "I thought it was a real stuffy thing, but I've seen business dudes at the end of it all with their ties [undone] and their collars opened up, wine spilled on their shirts. Before you know it, we're the greatest of buddies."

I love wine and hip-hop. Or at least I did - 90's hip-hop went well with Bordeaux, and some burning mary. Rock rock on Sadat

I played that same HHOTR trivia game get it wrong you dance, sing or drink. Get it right and get a hip hop letter tile. Although I was on the losing team we had a blast. Good to see your up on the Nu Nu.

Mr. Westhoff. The image YOU selected for this article is deplorable and nothing to do with Sadat X. What in GOD's name were you thinking? Do you enjoy insulting black people?
