I always found it funny someone would refer to themselves as “kid” long into adulthood. Nas, who’s in his mid-30’s constantly says stuff like “like my girl Foxy, the kid went deaf/Def” and “the kid got his chipped-tooth fixed”. But even moreso it’s hilarious when someone chooses kid as a name, ‘cause either their careers will only last as long as childstar actors (IE until their voice changes or they pick up a nasty coke-habit) or they’ll be some old-ass kids on the block.
Here’s a few examples:

I’ve often mentioned rap and wrestling have alotta simularities. Lil’ ass Andre The Giant named himself after big ass Andre The Giant, and now there’s a new kid on the block.

Bad News Allen is known for being a sneaky wrestler. At Wrestlemania IV , when he was known as Bad News Brown, he turned on fellow heel Bret Hart in the battle royal, which started a ten year babyface run for Bret. Now his ex-wife is using my favorite non-accademic encyclopedia “Wikipedia” to do some ambushing on her own. Here’s the quote:

…and if you’ve seen Big Lebowski you know how that quote ends. Anyhoot, when EPMD played in Denmark recently, they had to get someone to drive them from Copenhagen to Århus and back, which ended up being me. I’ve had my run-ins with Erick Sermon and DJ Scratch before, but I figured they wouldn’t remember me.

Few times does The Simpsons make mention of prowrestlers by name, but in a recent season 18 episode named “Moe n’a Lisa” it happened again.

Remember in the early 90’s when a kid was arrested for shooting a Texas State trooper upon which his defenselawyer cited that the teenager should be acquitted because he had been listening to – and inspired by – 2pac‘s “2pacalypse Now” album, which was in the tapedeck of his car at the time of his killing. Well the defense didn’t work, though it did make 2pac out to look like some type of evil agitator of random violence, and fueled a ban of rap music with violent – and just plain dirty – messages. (I’m sure later lyrics like “cop killers killing cops much props” didn’t help.)

I was recently at my first ever live wrestling event in Denmark. International Showdown rocked Langå, a small town about 15 kms from where I grew up, but a 4 hour trainride from where I live now. The afternoon show was dubbed ‘international’ due to appearence of a German tag-team and the American wrestler Cannonball Grizzly, who used to wrestle under the rapper-gimmick PN News in the 90’s (probably a play on equally overweight Prince Be of PM Dawn).
