The Wire “rap” up

January 10, 2009

By now it’s no secret that “The Wire” is/was the best written, most powerful television series to hit cable boxes since forever. I dedicated this past summer to watching the entire series and I can honestly say it was time well spent, something I can say for few, if any, other shows. Each episode was written like a chapter in a book and the brutally honest portrayal of the streets of Baltimore was a breath of fresh air for TV, albeit a violent, sometimes disturbing one.

Needless to say I was stoked when I learned that Mad Skillz, a VA emcee noted for his year end “rap” ups, issued a summary, hip hop style for the series, which is now history. If you consider yourself a fan of the show, or want to get a feel for what it’s all about, check this:
