Our boss Ted Bawno
tweeted a link yesterday to a rather dope song by rapper Misterman
, who is also known as Rast
of the graf crew RFC
, which rose to prominence in ‘90s NYC. He sounds sorta like an '80s version of 50 Cent
blended with a bit of K-Solo
, and if you listen to enough of his music, you’ll find he’s a big John Lennon
fan, says he suffers from depression, and paints graphic pictures of his days in the streets. (In fact, he states on his not too active Facebook
: "I founded a street gang, lived a life of crime, drugs and adventure, and now I rap about it.”) For more on the rap life of Rast RFC
, continue on…

Rast RFC — "Mark David Chapman"
“John Lennon’s killer was a gully-ass nigga/ He walked up on a nigga, said “Hi,” and pulled the trigger/ But I don’t condone what he did/ But it is what can happen in these New York streets where I live…”
Rast says: John Lennon inspires all I create. Mr. Chapman killed the physical body of creativity, but the spirit lives on forever though music.
