The Legend Of The Fake Spoonie Gee


For the past three years, a guy in Miami has been fooling tourists with claims that he’s Harlem rap legend Spoonie Gee. Hopefully the guys who have filmed his antics give him a Newport loosie or $5 for his troubles, since he may or may not be homeless despite still managing to rock a different Ralph Lauren polo in several of the clips. Here is the story of Fake Spoonie Gee, according to shitty iPhone footage:

Voiceitloud: “Homeless rapper claims to be Spoonie Gee “The God Father” of Rap”

Jorge Herrera: “Just bumped into him in Downtown Miami WHAT?! Old School!”

PRPLURKL: “Spoonie Gee blessin ya boy with some off the wall back to Africa shit!”

RIch D sez: “An old school hip hop legend from the 70s. Spoonie Gee gave us an on the spot freestyle in Miami off Biscayne.”

Carlos Mursuli: “We were outside of Euphoria when this man asked us for a cigarette, turned out to be one of Hip Hops legends. And my boy BP spitting a bit of his flow.”

Carlos Mursuli: “This man is a legend.”

Carlos Mursuli: “Enjoy some old school hip hop, real stuff.”

CMDjr81: “Don’t know how I ran into him but he was real as fuck lol”

Never fear, however, the non bootleg Spoonie Gee is still alive and well in New York, as footage of him performing with the Treacherous Three last year demonstrates. Fast forward to the 12:00 mark to see the real Gabriel Jackson doing his thing in 2012 to the delight of that broad up the front who knows every word.

He’s still cool as hell. Fun dude to hang out with, and he knows everyone in the area. So what if he’s fake, he’s still awesome.
