A Confluence of Facebuster Luminaries
Once in a great while Arabian Facebuster is able to cull a clip from the sports entertainment archives featuring a plethora of our favorite disparate subjects of prose and therefore ridicule. Ladies, gentlemen, and Hulk Hogan apologists, this is very much that clip...shot in the summer of 1993 and starring then newcomer to the hip-hop game "Rappin'" Randy (Savage) and Men On The Mission -- the most non-threatening posse of angry black men ever assembled which just so happened to be anchored by the yet to be formally actualized Big Gay Vis -- as they deliver a barrage of dope rhymes and shred observations about Lex Luger, his eight wheeled smokestack, and his Summer Slam opponent Yokozuna's portly caboose.
A pithy critique: I thought Oscar's rhyming of "Jim Cornette" and "forget" was ingenious. Ditto Macho's linkage of "Bill Laimbeer" with "cheer." Although, I am perplexed why Oscar repeatedly rhymed "Lex Express" with "success" instead of "flex" or "glistening pecs."
