Ya took somebody's money then ya spent it, ya spent it
Ya buy a "game-used" ball, misrepresent it, ent-it
Aiyyo, I came from Cali, and truth I bent-it, I bent-it
But now you've lost your house and cannot rent it

Gas Face.

Naw, I kid. Just wanted to say Gas Face. I gotta say, sports memorabilia fraud is the least gangsta way for a rapper to go down.

BTW, whatever happened to MC Serch?

I don't think Nash was brought down by sports memorabilia fraud - his whole shtick was exposing fraudulent items that others had claimed as authentic. It looks like he just borrowed too much money that he couldn't pay back. Am I missing some other part to this story?

Wait, this is the guy from 3rd Bass? He quit rapping and opened up a shop in Cooperstown? How did I not know this?!

I hope he kicks all of you in the grill.

Pop goes the weasel, indeed!

#4-

That, and items that had been stolen from their rightful institutional owners.

NICE NICE NICE

He'll be doing unintentionally funny 80s hip-hop dances behind the auctioneer.

MC Serch briefly had a talent show for white rappers. Seriously.

And to follow up on 10, MC Serch is to hiphop dance what Rob Schneider is to comedy. You can tell he's really, really trying, and his friends are all going out of their way to work with him to get better, but the complete lack of natural ability makes the whole spectacle awkward and uncomfortable to watch.

It had to be called ‘MC Serch’s MC Search,’ right? Please tell me it was called that.

I think it was called "Twice the Wackness with None of the Blackness" but I may be remembering it incorrectly.

We need more 3rd Bass discussion!

Cmon, we can all admit it now - they were right about MC Hammer.

As a Canadian this headline confused me.

Serch was the EP on Illmatic. That's something.

In your language, I believe it would be "Prime Minister Pete Nice Cooperstown Home To Be Auctioned, eh?" I'm not sure where to put the extra U's.
