1. People Who Don’t Rap But Have Rapper Names: Dolo Coker.

    dolo_coker_cover

    Dolo Coker was pushing mad keys and his name carried a lot of weight , but alas, he was most definitely not the Rick Ross or Jeezy or insert-rap-drug-kingpin-name here that his moniker most thoroughly suggests. Rather, Charles Coker was a learned man and a gifted jazz pianist who performed with artists like Dexter Gordon and gained the respect of his peers during an expansive hardworking career. But, damn if that name doesn't sound like a bad-ass nose candy pusher from the Lower East Side, NYC who raps about doin' dirt all by his lonely. Bow down to the 'Lo Man.
