THIS...THIS needs to stay as far away from the sport as long as possible...or at least until the sport experiences a decent recovery to the general public. I dont mind guys like 50 Cent (who the world knows) to perform at the events, because he's a crossover artist, but not this guy. I listen to some of his music, but that whole persona/lifestyle is another blow to the sport.

I have no real idea who he is. Prob heard a song of his before, but couldn't name one. What does he represent that's so detrimental to the sport? I just assumed he was one of those "South" rappers with big basslines and a funny accent. Plus i'm getting older now, so whenever I don't know an artist, I just assume they're "big with the kids" or something if they get brought to my attention. With that Nickelodeon type name, I just assumed Waka was in that category...

You asked the right question in, "what does he represent?". Dude is a gang member (wide open), of course Im sure some fighters were involved in the streets and such, before their career picked up. I just felt like that was killing music anyway, so there's no need for a rapper like that to be involved in boxing, which is dying a slow death. Of course people know that 50 Cent was involved in gang shit, but hell, dude is one of the richest hip-hop artists/entrepreneurs/etc.

Anyhow, Waka Flaka lives near the area that I live and he's highly known, and had a couple of big songs out. Nothing for me to make a big deal, and I sorta feel dumb talking about him. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Not sure if anyone else said this, if so, sorry for unwittingly biting. My biggest pet peeve is...

Literally: Dan Rafael

Figuratively: Dan Rafael

Nah, not completely, but some opportunities to make a bad joke just have to be taken.
