Props to whoever was responsible for putting together the Subversiv* Records Tour flier that we snagged from a lamppost at 11th and Broadway this morning. Although the handbill hyping a July 14 date at Old Curtis St. featuring Epic, Brzowski, Matre, DJ Chaps, K the I and Ancient Mith was weathered and fading, we got the point.

The flier, which put Hizzoner Hick's face on the body of classic-era LL Cool J -- when he still rocked a Kangol and was bejeweled like Mr. T -- redlined the wit-o-meter like no other. Hick-hop and you don't stop, yo'. -- Dave Herrera
