Did you ever see that TV show on VH1 about Ego Trips’ White Rapper?

I like this

If you did, you must remember that dude John Brown, King of the Burbz, reppin Ghetto Revival. From watching a few episodes, he seemed strange at the time but upon meeting up with him at the Bowery Poetry Club, he came off quite normal and down to earth. He was humble, easy-going  and coherent explaining that for the show he was “on some robotic shit, wit the phrases. But it was just infiltration mode. I wasn’t there to be against anybody. I was there to be against Viacom. I mean, it was me vs. them in terms of who got the publicity. (Because) If you go with the flow (on a reality show) you’re gonna get railroaded. They put it together all for the entertainment value.” He said one of his favorite moments they didn’t show was talkin to Remy Ma, who warned them about Hip Hop’s darkside. Originally from Davidson, CA, he now resides in Brooklyn where he linked up with the other artists of Ghettoe Revival, Dred Scott, EZ, EMS, and Scholar to show a “different aspect of this society we live in. G.R. is about lifting up our communities by puttin out things that are productive and I’m just representing my lane in life or my angle in America which is the suburbs.”
