On Big City Philadelphia's "How to Rob An Industry Hipster"
Rapper-robbing: a time-honored tradition. And rap "hipsters" are easy targets: Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco, Asher Roth, Kid Sister? Alright...This from a rapper whose official bio reads:
- A deal from Beanie's label State Property was on the table when fate would intervene yet again. Big City's affiliation with a crime syndicate would eventually place a drug charge on the table rather than a record deal. City was intercepted and arrested with 2,000 lbs of ketamine crossing the United States Mexican border. Released on bail, City was on the run for 18 months until falling into a month-long drug-induced coma. When he awoke, City found himself handcuffed to a hospital bed and surrounded by law enforcement.
A month-long drug-induced coma? Anyway, recommended for the priceless moment where City says: "I would jack Santogold but she's my homeboy's sister." Philadelphia, stand up! [Nah Right]
