SwayMolina Did I mention that I also saw Vanilla Ice for shits and giggles once his fate was sealed as a has-been? Sometime in 09/10 a dive bar in Fort Myers. Saw Busta Rhymes because for some reason, our student council thought his pop-rap was a good performance for wannabes from LI/NJ. I saw Hammer 04 or 05; he wasn't performing he was chilling at the W Hotel Bar - I bought him a diet coke (I felt bad, the guy lost $30M+ and it wasn't in a shitcoin). Met C-Lo Green @ the Tabernacle asked him for the best place to eat wings in ATL (he said JR Crickets-I beg to differ). Outkast at Music Midtown. Partied with Shock-G at MJQ; went up to Benzino at some party and asked him for a free copy of his DVD in 04 (shut down). Up and Smoke Tour I was in the nosebleeders (no money), so when I had the opportunity to do it up, got floor seats for Jay-Z/Beyonce when they were at Mercedes Benz stadium.
To think this slippery slope started with Fat Boys in 85 (when I was 5) on the Radio, then a couple of hits of Tone Loc and Young MC a few years later. I was hooked. Been a critical audiophile ever since.
Don't hate the player, hate the game.
