Default 2Pac To Appear Live On Carlos Mencia Show

Quote:


Ever since the death of rapper/actor Tupac Shakur, the world has not gotten enough of the later rapper turned icon. Part of the 2Pac craze after his death were the number of conspiracy theories surrounding the rapper such as him still being alive and possibly reappearing years later.

Well comedy has exploited the Tupac phenomenom issue by having comedy skits and parodies of the rapper. It wasn't too long ago on the lost episodes of the Dave Chapelle show that Chapelle had a Tupac parody, which mimmicked the rapper's voice and traits of the rapper having lyrics of relevant issues even after his death from a comedy standpoint. Well it looks like Carlos Mencia will be following in the same footsteps.

On April 15th, in what may be a controversial live airing of Comedy Central's Mind of Mencia, a rapper named "Dusty Roze" will be appearing as Tupac Shakur.

The impersonator will be supposedly speaking on issues of the current state of the world. Josh Harraway aka Dusty Roze reportedly said in his Tupac impersonation, "It�s the seventh year of the new millennium and I got work to do. It�s a lot of issues goin� on right now that need to be addressed."

If those Tats are real all I gotta say is ISSUES!!!

I mean, I guess I can comprehend the humor or entertainment factors that come of impersonation in the context of an Elvis dubb or a Maralyn Monroe but never should a mans/womans life be portrayed excessively or exploited to outrageous extents... There should be limits to these things, but living in the free willed society that we live in it makes it remarkably easy for someone to take advantage of another for a financial profit. As long as at the end of the day the impersonator { for example Boris the Babe Ruth impersonator} butts out the cigar and puts the Yankee uniform back in his closet and continues to live his everyday life as his TRUE identity I have no problem with this... But if your going out of your way to great depths such as geting replica tatoos or plastic surgery to appear as someone that who did something great in there lives before they passed you should be outlawed... There should be a law that restricts how far somebody can go with it...
