rap on a budget

what it is: rap on a budget
where i found it: like so many other things, WFMU

While we're on the subject of mystifying rap music, scrolling through the WFMU blog I found this post about a bottom of the barrel, but outstanding Memphis rapper named Tommy Wright III. Static ridden, overloaded, poorly miked and without much of a concept (other than saying is own name a bunch of times), I love him very much.

The guy who posted this reports having found it on a now "out of business" blog called Twankle and Glisten (in case you don't get it, "twankle" is Southern for twinkle), which I took a look at long enough to realize that I should back away from such a deep, dark chasm before falling in.
