Blowfly Entertains Kids on Cable Access Television


If you know anything about Blowfly, the self-proclaimed Original Dirty Rapper, then you know he's one of the last people on earth who should be talking to kids. The legendary Miami songwriter, who used to perform under his given name, Clarence Reid, has spent the latter part of his career rapping the nastiest, crudest, and filthiest lyrics a person could imagine.

Spend any amount of time listening to his new album, Live at the Platypussery, or even a few minutes on his MySpace page and you'll see how hilariously crass his message is on songs like, "Should I Fuck This Big Fat Ho" and "Suck it Till You're Satisfied." But for some reason, Chic A Go Go, a television dance program designed for kids of all ages in Chicago, wanted to have Blowfly on their show. The result just gets weirder and weirder by the minute.
