Affion Crockett is great at imitating rappers, but has no desire to mess with that side of the industry. While the actor and comedian has several mixtapes under his belt, he’s keeping comedy his focus for the moment.
“I don’t love the rap industry enough to want to be a part of it,” he says. “I’d rather just be a fan and listen to other guys put out albums. I’d rather focus on my acting. But the guys that know [I rhyme] matter, like Redman, Method Man, 9th Wonder and Talib, they know that I’m an MC. It means more that they know. A lot of actors want to do the Jamie Foxx thing, but not every artist can cross over.”
Well, if you were this funny you’d stick to comedy as well. While he was speaking to TheUrbandaily.com about his new show “In The Flow,” we asked Affion about the origins of those spoofs that we’ve been posting for the past years. Oh, show the man some Birthday love on Twitter @AFFIONCROCKETT
