Arthur Russell, Gary Lucas, and Vin Diesel

Okay, so there's a reason this one has probably stayed buried, but Gary Lucas's archives have unearthed probably the most unlikely collaboration in the history of Downtown New York collaborations. Behind the decks in legendary producer Arthur Russell known for his avant-garde disco tracks and eccentric takes on pop that only now sound like the curve has caught up to him. On the microphone though was a young upstart named Mark Sinclair, who eventually went on to become the actor Vin Diesel. As a lost Arthur Russell track, its a bit of an embarassment and as a Vin Diesel hip-hop freestyle, it's about what you might expect. Still, a noteworthy curiousity for those who love meaningless trivia or trying to establish meaningless "six degrees" connections.
