You’re getting married and filling out another registry for more silverware, spatula’s and bowls that you probably won’t ever use, and wondering to yourself if marriage just an excuse to get a bunch of crappy gifts?  Cue rapper, writer, and all around funny guy, MC Paul Barman with a brilliant and unique wedding gift that comes in the form of raps and drawings.  He calls it Audioketubah: a custom-made song/poem/rap written and recorded by Barman. Paul draws on his experience as a writer and interviewer for The Village Voice and Wired Magazine in order to pull out hilarious and tear-cracking stories about the newlyweds, via interviews with bride and groom as well as friends and family and then applies his un-matchable rhyme skills on top of it. In addition to the recording, the gift comes with a hand-written scroll.  

Barman decided to give the Ketubah, a traditional Jewish wedding contract that essentially outlines the rights and responsibilities of the bride and groom, a 21st Century makeover, and it’s caught the attention of some pretty important people
