from Mayor Bloomberg??
In announcing "Hip Hop Week," October 12-17th of this year, Mayor Mike had company from Russell Simmons and Ice-T. Now, while everyone knows that to be really hip hop, he'd have to have five scowling sycophants, three handlers, a DJ, and a hype man, I'll give credit for stating (and this is a paraphrase from the radion this morning):
Where else could you have Hip Hop week but in New York City? We have the Russell Simmons and Run-DMC from Queens, th Wu-Tang Clan from Staten Island, the Beastie Boys from Brooklyn, mostly, and me, Mike B from Manhattan."I am sure he named a Bronx representative, but "me, Mike B?"
Strike anything I said in the first paragraph. If you could have heard it, damn that was funny.
