NoEmotion Goldmask leans forward in his plastic patio chair as he places his Bud Light on the table. He removes the blunt from the side of his ear, places it on the table, where roaches of previously smoked blunts still lie, and picks the bottle up to take a sip.
"Today's a good day," says NoEmotion. "Made some sales, sold some T-shirts."
A consistent figure at local hip-hop events, NoEmotion is hard to miss walking around donning one of his two gold drama masks while handing out posters and cards with lyrics on them. He won't say anything to you while wearing them. He'll just stick his hands out waiting for you to take them.
At first sight you have to ask: "Why is this guy wearing a mask?" And at first listen, "What's he saying exactly?"
