Roughly 5am and laid out on an ER stretcher in downtown Detroit. Hooked up to an IV with steroids to fight off a violating case of Pneumonia, I was lounged and listened to a masked crack dealer laying beside me, enthusiastically muffled, connected to an asthma machine. “You sound like Danny De Vito, you from New York huh? How the fuck they sell crack out there with all those cops?”. This dealer goes on the tell me how if you make more that 10k slinging in his neighborhood you have to cut in the cops, the curruption and jailing of Detroit’s mayor, and how he was passed out on a sofa in the trap, high as fuck on some banger weed, post dome from a customer. “Woke up in shock an shit, unable to breathe an called an ambulance cause I was gon die”.
After hours of that type of talk it was 8am. Time for discharge, a cab back to the Detroit hotel /casino I was staying at for a few successful hands of black jack, to get in the game for a full day of shooting of the following video…
RIME & 1xRUN PRESENTS: “WRAP SHEETS DETROIT FANTASTIC”
In Detroit the streets be wild and only the most thug motherfuckers come out on top, falling on both sides of the law. Veteran detective Rimessy Foley diffuses terrorists attacks, lays the hammer down on sucker mc’s, and comes up on dealers and crackheads. But at the end of the day he always finds time to artfully violate his paper work and rewrite the Arrest Sheet.
“Sit around long enough and you’re bound to come up with something interesting. Whether it’s an all night drawing session, or a series of half-joking ideas blurted out in brainstorming meetings at the 1xRUN headquarters to come up with something new for a promo video.The only agreed upon point was that if we’re going to put out a video, we might as well have fun making it. Our main goal was to create something obscenely retarded, but cool. Whether it’s on found arrest sheets or in a three minute online video, a bullshit story thrown out there should come across as amusing, somewhat offensive, and (hopefully) viewable.” – Rime
