Mr. Torain: On That Nigga Shit!

By Khalil Amani

 

In this hip-hop game it’s hard to find truth! Erry’body’s dick-riding! Erry’body’s lyin’! Erry’body’s fugazi! But this nigga right ere? This nigga Star a.k.a. Mr. Troi Torain—“A man of a certain age” (his phrase)—is one real Negro!

(Star a.k.a. Troi Torain, the voice of Shot 97)

 

Star’s Internet show, “Shot 97” (a play on New York’s Hot 97 radio) is the most ratchet hip-hop show evaaaaaar! He beez on that nigga shit fo' real doe!

 

I listen to the show often. He speaks clearly and concisely and says what the fuck he means! Add me to his growing list of dick-riders, although he doesn’t need any cosigners. This man is a one-man wrecking-crew—taking no prisoners and tackling pop culture with the fierceness of a warrior! For the stuff that he spews—he has to be ready to throw up his “dick-beaters” (fists) at any given moment.

 

Mr. Torain is a proud Romney supporter—a proud “start snitching” advocate who would love nothing better than to join the NYPD and put some of your favorite rappers behind bars for bitchassness. Star calls himself the “Objective Hater”—relishing in his hateration, but he doesn’t just “hate!” Nay! He gives you sound reasoning behind his hateration, which, if you really get down to brass taxes, is no more than him cogently critiquing a person, place or thing. His seemingly infantile bromides (statements/notions) turn out to be genius-ly crafted soliloquies, aimed at putting his foe’s dick in the dirt. His gift-of-gab is off the meter!

But don’t mistake his rants as the unintelligible gibberish of a disgruntled industry insider. Don’t get his gratuitous use of the “N-word” and profanity fucked up! Dude knows a thing or two! This nigga beez quoting Ayn Rand and Chairman Mao! For a lot of these non-reading-ass niggas, that shit goes over their heads, but there are a few of us well-read intelligent coons going, “Whoa!”

 

Brother Star is a gifted orator who uses street vernacular to get his point across. You’d better understand ghetto clichés, because he’s well-versed in urban colloquialisms. Using words like “Hoe-ass nigga,” “Trick,” “Mark” and “Buster” to describe your favorite rapper—Mr. Torain isn’t looking to nestle up to the industry, but rather be its Achilles Heel—a thorn in its side. This dude delivers a no-holds-barred commentary on the state of hip-hop America. If you’re tired of those milquetoast radio brown-nosers sycophants and you’re not easily offended by vulgarity, this is the hip-hop show for you!

 

No one is exempt from his tongue! Of 50 Cent, Star says, “I fucks with him hard, but I don’t trust him!” LOL On niggas that need to kill themselves he says, “Nigga needs to pull out the blicky [gun] and put it to his head and do the Lord’s work!” Again, LOL. “If you comment on another man’s foot attire, you’re a fuckin’ batty-rider [homosexual].”Ah dayum!

 

The dude is profanely profound!

 

Erry’body gettin’ it—Sand Niggers (Middle Easterners), faggots, Spics—he doesn’t discriminate on the name-calling, but somehow you get the sense that he isn’t a racist in the strictest sense, but more of a ghetto Don Rickles (Google him young'uns!)—a guy who will call you a Spic to your face and then take you out to dinner. He actually desensitizes these racial slurs with quick wit and humor. By the time you realize he just offended you, you’re laughing at the truth of his commentary.

 

And Star a.k.a. Mr. Torain can beg too! With the sincerity of a preacher, he looks into the camera with a straight face and asks you to donate to his two-hours of unadulterated coonery, fuckery and unabashed shit-talking (I say that with all due respect) and you know what? I’m gonna hit that donation button soon, because I believe in his vision of 21st century hip-hop realism!

 

Any rapper that would confront Mr. Torain in the street for his crude commentary is a bitch-made nigga, acting on the feminine nature of his being! Why? Because his show is hilariously funny as well as informative about the state of the industry.

 

With a supporting cast working behind the scenes posting up videos and his side-kick DJ Aliaz (who needs to keep his fuckin’ mic on so Star ain’t gotta tell him to step to the mic a hunid times!)—Mr. Torain is set to make mainstream radio sit up and take note.
