Hey homies! I be gettin’ some new promo pix! Y’all be there wit my bling n’stuff?

RACE CHANGE OPERATION!Okay, so I started thinking - who is successful in the music business these days? RAP SINGERS! That’s who. I mean if you think about it, it’s kind of a perfect fit for me. I can’t sing - rap singers can’t sing. Basically they are actors who have figured how to make big bucks in the music biz, which is pretty much what i am except of course for the big bucks part. (Did you ever see Ice Cube in “Anaconda?” I mean the guy is a natural.) But there is a slight problem with this scenario - rap singers are BLACK! (except of course for for Vanilla Ice or the Beastie Boys, but they are posers posing as posers so there’s no reason to go there), but then it hit me - A RACE  CHANGE OPERATION! After all - Michael Jackson did it. So, it’s the new me - MC RANDY BRANDO!  …but then no, I realized that’s too white. Not only that, people would think I’m an old fat white guy instead of just old. So I thought about it a little more and WHAMMO!!! It hit me! Get ready everybody, you are now dealing with the one and only - MC Cocky Ran-!D!
