Awesome Sauce - ASL Edition

How Do You Say Shaolin in Sign Language? ... Meet the interpreter who has signed for the Wu-Tang Clan, Killer Mike, and the Beastie Boys.

Not much to add; the story mostly speaks for itself. Via Media dis & dat.

Actually, I'll add one thing. The awesomeness here isn't that a Sign Language Interpreter thought to interpret live rap performances. I expect that goes on quite a lot, maybe more than the article would suggest. What made me smile is how the performers themselves are first amazed and transfixed, then so respectful of the interpreter's skill and professionalism.
