Just to confirm, I’m not going to enter a rap contest. Friends and Family, I would have thought that you all knew that was a joke. HOWEVER, I’m extremely happy that whatever crazy bullpoopy idea I have is thoroughly supported by you. Rest assured, I posted that for fun because, of all places, a call for hip hop artists in Hayes Valley? Well, that’s like finding a hippy dippy smoke shop in the Marina. 😉
Also, I posted it because I discovered John McWhorter and want to read his book All about the Beat: Why Hip-Hop Can’t Save Black America AND really loving me some Hennessy Youngman!
