Sorry to confuse any UK rap fans, but the Parker Lewis I’m referring to isn’t in fact the British MC/producer who provided the beat for the first song on Fishscale (Lewis Parker), but the name of the lead character from that TV show that tried to recreate the whole Ferris Buellers Day Off vibe. In what must have been a slow news month at The Source, Matty C reported that the star of Parker Lewis Can’t Lose shocked the crowd at Ed Lover‘s birthday party with some “impressive” mic skills. All I’ve got to say is that Corky Nemic has to one of the whitest names ever.
Why am I bringing this pointless bit of trivia up years later? Well it seems that MF “got ebay goin’ nuts” Doom was in attendance, as he explains on the awesome “Black Bastards!”:
It was Ed Lover’s birthday party, a block from the spot
On stage I heard some off-beat “Lick shot! Lick shot!”
Well goddamn, guess who, looking bitchy as hell
Parker Lewis, well well, I brings an L
I gave him a “Beef Beef” look, he acted like he couldn’t tell
I guess that was the sucker in him, ready set to swell
But Jorge said it was insane, advice to maintain
but damn it has to be hard, the way they master how to act black
Fall off the funky track to rock the house in vein
As we sat with Kuriosity and sipped champagne
Not really much of a beef, but funny shit regardless.
