You an addict of cheating but I took the charge
Stop running up my money tall, height advantage
Ohhhhh, ohhhh; ohhh you too much to handle in one package
Not now but right now, you know... I had to go downtown
Shorty come and fix you up like Bobby Brown
Maxey's ASL interpretation is an explosive, code-switching mishmash of textbook American Sign Language, pantomime, and makeshift signs he's cobbled together for slang words native to hip-hop ("molly," for example, combines gestures for "pill" and "sex"); the way he signs is as worldly and wry and improvisational as he is.
Zex, featured in the video above with their new song "No Sancturay," seems relatively cool with the attention. From an interview in Slate with Zex guitarist Jo Galipeau:
Slate: I noticed on your Facebook pages that you've tried to get your hands on some copies. What are you going to do with those?
Galipeau: Personally I have a copy coming to me. Some people have been writing to the band offering to sell their copy to us, at exorbitant prices, so we're not really that interested. Several record stores that have big orders of them have also contacted us. A large number of them seem to be in Australia for some reason.
Slate: And they’re trying to sell your own music to you?
