This young man from Louisiana calls himself “Hurricane Chris.” The Internet tells us that he is famous among children for a rap song called “Halle Berry (She’s Fine),” the lyrics of which praise the actress’ Oscar-winning turn in the film Monster’s Ball. Recently he put on a concert for the Louisiana legislature. Hmm. [Political Derby]

  1. Michael Steele was right. The hippity-hoppity-ization of the GOP is “off da hook.” Jest fix it; no big deal!

    Michael Jackson’s dead????

  2. Rap and politics are like Republicans and women, they just don’t go together.

    BTW, it looks like Michael Jackson didn’t follow through on that chain letter I sent him.

  4. Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson die on the same day and no Wonkette post? I know this is supposed to be D.C. gossip and all, but doesn’t D.C. belong to Hollywood these days? What gives?

  5. Oh come on. His godmother is a state representative and she invited him there to be an example of kids who don’t drop out of school. Or whatever.

    And I haz a sad about MJ :(

  6. Nobody but TMZ is reporting it yet.
    But in typical fashion, the LATimes story on his being rushed to the hospital had an update that consisted entirely of a description of the Bel Air mansion Jackson was renting for $100,000 a month.
    Would it be too much to hope for autoerotic asphyxiation with a red Kabbalah string?

  7. Rut-roh, threadjacking time. Jacko dead >>>> video of lame rap song on the floor of the LA House.

    (Even so, somewhere up in heaven, Huey Long is crying.)

  8. Epic lulz. Just when I thought it might soon be safe to admit being from Louisiana. At least the white members of the legislature didn’t take out their traditional Klan gear and cart the guy out the door to be hanged by the neck until he never makes another rap song. In related news, Michael Jackson won’t be joining the Klan (his lifelong dream) because HE DEAD…

    You just think Louisiana is messed up. It’s so, so much worse than what you think. There is a pencil embedded in the ceiling of that room at the State Capitol, where the guy is doing his “wrapping muzic.” The pencil belonged to a Louisiana State Senator. The mafia blew up his desk the same day they cut his throat at home. The mafia had pretty much decided they were going to make sure he died of something that day. I was close friends with his grandson, and my grandfather was involved in the murder. Coinkidenk? Apparently. Didn’t find out until they were all long dead.

  9. [re=348595]SayItWithWookies[/re]: “Would it be too much to hope for autoerotic asphyxiation with a red Kabbalah string?” Is it possible to win with the first comment?

  10. Please disregard my previous comment. It was not a cool thing to mention considering the suffering the man’s murder caused his family. It’s not something a good friend would have brought up, but I can’t delete it. Hence this apology.

  11. He chose this very instant to slip the gilded coil so that one of his former victims could take his place at the gig and fulfill a lifelong dream of performing for the Louisiana legislature.

    This was a very classy final act reminiscent of the Michael Jackson of old, who in many ways left us long,long ago. Take heart: A noble death can bring redemption that eludes one while still living.

    “Who’s loving you now” MJ?

    We are. And we are the world…

  12. …did anyone else pick up the irony of a rapper named “HURRICANE” Chris addressing the Lousiana state house? Whats next Stevie Wonder judging a beauty pangeant!?

  13. Can I just offer, as a card-carrying black man, my apologies for Hurricane Chris?

    If you have the fortitude, please sit and listen to his debut hit “A Bay Bay”, but please don’t hold him against us. Also.

  14. [re=348975]CriticalOne[/re]: as a card carrying black woman, I already snatched away his Knee-grow pass after he dropped Ay Bay Bay.

  15. So are the phrases “Booty bigger than the pus” and “Take her from tha club / To tha car to tha dick” now part of the Louisiana Congressional Record? Because that’s an epic win no matter how you look at it. Jindal/Hurricane Chris 2012!
