After a long week, doesn’t it feel good to relax with Mike Francesa?
This weeks installment features yours truly. Please, calm down.
Years ago, I called Mike to plant a seed of ranting craziness regarding a line in Jay-Z’s “Empire of New York” hit. My intention was to get his comment surrounding the line, “I made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can”.
Obviously, I knew Mike would either blow a gasket over the notion of a rapper making the Yankee “brand” more famous than a player or I would be quickly dismissed along with the silliness of such an asinine comment.
But, much to my surprise, Francesa quickly interrupted me (well, that isn’t surprising) and waxed poetic about his ear to the Hip-Hop scene (surprising).
“Yeah, I heard it a hundred times.” I never once in a million years would have thought bringing up a rap song to Mike Francesa would have brought out “yeah yeah yeah. Been there, done that” stuffiness, but hey shit happens.
However, the probability of the Notorious Z.A.U.N sitting front row at next year’s Source awards seems quite unlikely.
Have a great weekend and thanks fa da call!
