Sylar about to paint the future
So a few weeks ago, I'm driving home from work and not really paying that much attention to the Current because they're playing a hiphop song and I just don't like hiphop. But as I'm exiting onto 94, I suddenly went, "Wait a minute? Did this guy just mention Sylar?"

I figured I'd just misheard it and didn't really think much about it afterwards.

Then last night about midnight, the Current played the song again. And once again, I wasn't really paying close attention, but the name "Sylar" jumped out at me. So I googled the song to find lyrics, and it turns out I am not an obsessive freak who's hearing his name for no reason:

you're a cute lil styler with a half-eaten writer
cut off your fitted cap, take your power like Sylar

If you'd like to hear for yourself because you are also an obsessed freak, the artist is Cadence Weapon and the song ("In Search Of The Youth Crew") is currently playing on his MySpace page

Now that's hysterical, I can just imagine the double-take. Woo-hoo! Sylar's invaded hip hop!

Oh wow. Awesome - I must find said' song now!

It really was a odd moment. I think I did a quadruple-take!

I'm particularly amused by the thought of someone in a music genre that's known for tough-acting, sitting there screaming in terror at the TV, "Mohinder! No! That's not Zane, that's Sylar!"

(are they aware of Sylar's... leanings?)

Yes, it is. I'm thinking the singer is a closet geek, because he also name-drops the Riddler and Kramer.

(are they aware of Sylar's... leanings?)

Leanings? What leanings? You mean, like, his tendency to wear all black? I don't think that will be a problem. :P
