Art Vandelay - "Emilio Estevez"

Posted by on Tue, Feb 19, 2013 at 5:49 PM

Emilio Estevez is real. He never anglicized his name to get more Sheen, like his dad RamÓn or his crackhead bro Carlos (there's one in every family).

Ricky Pharoe is real, too, even though he's changed his name a few times. He and his producer Mack Formway are known as Art Vandelay, and they're on the comeup with their new album Eye 8 The Crow, out in April. Perpendicular to how Macklemore has processed his indie-rap heroes (Freestyle Fellowship, Quannum, Slug, Brother Ali) into pure candy, Pharoe evokes Aesop Rock and every paranoiac, shut-in, conspiracy-nut rapper. Peep the video that Pharoe made for the latest.
