Just like everyone else these days, rappers gotta eat. But eating is tough when everybody is busy stealing all your music.
Luckily, veteran New York rapper R.A. The Rugged Man — one of the better performers to ever come out of this writer’s home of Long Island’s Suffolk County — encountered a fan at a restaurant recently, who just happened to be the joint’s cook. The fan admitted that he stole all of R.A.’s music, and gave him his dinner for free.
In the comments, someone asked how he felt about coming face-to-face with the musical pirate, but R.A. wasn’t sweating it.
“It was dope,” he replied. “I had just won my court case and avoided having to pay $19,000 and then I went straight from court to a nice Italian restaurant and they told me I don’t have to pay for dinner. I was like today is my day. lol”
