Not fulfilling the dream

David Joseph Thornton:

A rapper, Thornton acted like a "sore loser," she said, when the audience booed him off stage in the style of the talent shows at Harlem's famed Apollo Theater.

Thornton had come with an entourage of about 15, Byron said. He left, but came back into the auditorium and was smoking inside, she said.

Some fraternity members tried to kick him out, but he and several others resisted, she said, delaying the show's planned after-party. Show organizers decided to cut short the lineup and move the audience outside.

Police then responded to reports of someone with a pistol outside the building.

That someone was allegedly Thornton.

Sounds like Eli Porter finally found a challenger for Iron Mic.

slightly less-offensive was the dude on the Lyricist Lounge 2 tour who got mad when people weren't feeling him and threw the mic into the crowd. fortunately for him, the mic was returned to the stage and calmness ensued.

Lol. Now, see, I missed that.

My thing is, homeboy brought a gun to the show. He must've already known that he wasn't bringing anything to the cipher.
