That video is a testament
as to what not to do. I guess the context of this
altercation really does matter more than I
right. I wasn't ever a midtown fan, but their career was definitely one that I admired. That being said, you are right that this is "what not to do." The guy has changed his onstage persona to fit the style of music he plays now. He used to be funny, humble, self-depricating and enjoyable to watch onstage. Listening to the way he talks in the video made me want to puke. So a kid flips you off... Be a pro and move the fuck on. There's no sense acting like a jersey shore reject, calling a kid fat and so on. I could go on forever with all the shit that annoyed me about this altercation. Alas, I won't.
I do need to say, though, that Like I Do has been my jam for the past week and I'm really proud to have been labelmates with you dudes. Lowcountry is fantastic stuff.
