So yesterday the Interwebz told us that the mysteriously tripped out Captain Murphy is in fact Flying Lotus ‘s rap alter ego . (We were kinda hoping Murph was real, but hey, the intrigue was fun while it lasted.) Just hours later, however, the world of rap alter egos suffered a profound setback as Dallas police lieutenant Regina Smith was placed on administrative leave after a TV news report identified her as tough-talking rapstress “Lucille Baller” – whose lyrics include a threat to empty her weapon at anybody who messes with her. Irresponsible behavior by a public servant, or unfair demonization of rap (again)? Watch Dallas-Forth Worth’s WFAA News 8’s report and ponder the question, what would Humpty Hump (or Rick Ross) do?
