Rap artist and Vine king DeStorm Power is handsome, hilarious, and huge on the Tube. His 2011 "How to Solve a Rubik's Cube" rap started as a challenge from a fan and ended in triumph for DeStorm, in the form of more than 3.8 million views and counting, proving his sweet rhymes can take any lesson from boring to bangin'.
In this episode of the VH1-What's Trending production Huge on the Tube (#HOTT), the "Victory Dance" creator gets real about his creative process.
He says it took several days to create the "Rubik's Cube" rap video -- not only did he have to actually solve the thing and translate the instructions into a cohesive song, but he had to time the puzzle solving to the beat of his rapping. Tricky, indeed.
Big thanks to Destorm Powers for taking part in this project! I also want to thank our special YouTube commentators for contributing to this video: Lisa Schwartz, Trisha Hershberger and Shanna Malcolm.
