Fangirl-ing over Watsky's "Cardboard Castles" video, big time.
Aside from his fierce rapping skills, our favorite thing about Watsky is his first name: GEORGE. (There's something special about a rapper named "George," amirite? It's like he might as well be wearing a cable-knit sweater and pleated khakis.) "George" kinda sounds like a dad-ish name, doesn't it? Well, while we couldn't envision Watsky as a dad just yet (songs like "Strong As An Oak" and "Moral Of The Story" are a little too profanity-laden for that), Watsky still manages to demonstrate a paternal side in the video for "Cardboard Castles," the title track off his forthcoming album, out March 12. And did we mention that the entire album is available for streaming RIGHT NOW? We know -- Watsky's such a doll (in case you couldn't already tell by HIS FACE!).

Fangirl-ing over Watsky big time, right now.
We're totally having a moment with Watsky right now. Like, such a moment that if he were to stand right in front of us, we'd probably get all sweaty, awkward, and weird, avoid eye contact, then revert back to sweaty. If you've seen the rapper and slam poet (yes, really) in his "Strong As An Oak" video, you were probably left sitting in your own saline too. And having just witnessed Watsky threaten to manually stimulate a dragon (this is probably the first ever rap boast of the sort) in his clever new "Moral Of The Story" video (the second single off his forthcoming Cardboard Castles album) we're sweatin' harder than Trinidad Jame$ up in here.
Before you watch, we'll alert you to the fact that the video includes some BOMB choreography, and Watsky goes in. Because have you ever seen a rapper do a Britney Spears-esque, full-group dance routine complete with flashing lights? Well you're about to.
