Truthfully speaking, we’d all like to try our hands at any sort of marketing ploy to shimmy ourselves atop the upper echelon of blogs, and seriously, if anyone had an opportunity to do so, they’d take it in a heartbeat. Queens’s rapper, Shirt, absolutely accomplished that feat this past week. Utilizing his computer savvy cleverness, the often raspy heavy-spitter devised a grand plan to not only create a carbon-copy fake page of a NY Times template (filled with phony articles), but he successfully managed to bamboozle the throngs of rap fanatics by attaching the name of renowned music journalist Jon Caramanica to the byline, to which he himself was the brunt of all despise from numerous of outlets, who deemed this out-of-the-box tactic as shamelessly desperate.

But surely enough, he could give a flying New York rat’s a**, because that’s been the kid’s demeanor all throughout his young career, and he has the line for line talent to speak for itself – and well, his latest offering Rap will light a flame to your speakers – which isn’t to be taken likely. As if his rap alias hasn’t already caused you to contemplate about jumping off the roof (yes, his name is nearly impossible to find upon Googling), then his music will surely keep you grounded. Packed with hard-snapping beats, topped off with 30 quick-strike minutes of bold-faced rhymes, the young fellow from Q-Borough delivers at the top of his game and puts his city on his back, riding the wave and carrying the torch for newcomers to come in the nearest feature. It's time for y'all lesson in Spitting 101. And that’s officially a Rap, man.
