A rap song inspired by Rob Ford’s crack cocaine denial

My favourite line: ” you smoke so much crack/how come you ain’t losing weight?”

So far, that’s the best defense for Ford I’ve heard so far – he’s too fat to be a crackhead.


Rob Ford must be part of the zeitgeist.

After all, someone has recorded a rap track about him.

Corey Charron, a 21-year-old from Ottawa who recently won a $5,000 freestyle competition on American network BET, uploaded his latest creation on Sunday night.

The lyrics present an entirely fictional scenario in which Charron tells his story of sharing illegal substances with the mayor of Toronto. (Also, it includes a bit of swearing — you’ve been warned.)

Charron — who performs under his last name — was among the many outside of Toronto who couldn’t help but follow coverage of the allegations that have surrounded Ford over the past week.

The statement which the mayor gave to media on Friday afternoon, in which he denied being a user of crack cocaine or addicted to crack cocaine, provided a soundbite hook for a rap narrative.

Rob Ford’s “Denial”: THAT’s The Best He’s Got, He Might As Well Have Confessed.

So, after 8 days of sitting on his ample backside, Rob Ford has finally gotten around to making a statement about his alleged crack use.  Boy, and what an utterly fucking useless statement it is too. He might as well have confessed.

Here’s the money quote (the rest of the statement being self-serving hand-waiving):

“There has been a serious accusation from the Toronto Star that I use crack cocaine. I do not use crack cocaine, nor am I an addict of crack cocaine. As for a video, I cannot comment on a video that I have never seen or does not exist. It is most unfortunate, very unfortunate, that my colleagues and the great people of this city have been exposed to the fact that I have been judged by the media without any evidence.

This past week has not been an easy one. It has taken a great toll on my family and my friends and the great people of Toronto. For the past week, on the advice of my solicitor, I was advised not to say a word.” Continue reading “Rob Ford’s “Denial”: THAT’s The Best He’s Got, He Might As Well Have Confessed.”
