Telling a joke here or there is definitely a challenge when it isn’t your shtick and/or forte to begin with. Rappers, past and present, have all tried their hands at acting but not so much in the comedy field. Without hurting the feelings of these so-called wanna-be jokesters—come to think of it—many of them have fell flat on their faces when attempting to make us laugh. There’s a not funny bone in their bodies. Thankfully we have a Nore and Action Bronson around to provide us with comedic entertainment. Sorry Snoop
Dogg Lion and Mr. Khalifa, uh, “Mac and Devin” just didn’t cut it. Now, with emcees dibbling and dabbling into unfamiliar waters with Cipha Sounds’ regular improv show, the Wu’s own Raekwon takes heed to the new on-stage phenomenon and paid a visit to UCB Theatre and made an unforgettable appearance. True life stories and all, this was complete hilarity at its finest. Tour stories and rapper shenanigans, you can’t beat that.
