Here is a new Dope45 – The Wrestler. I decided a couple days ago after talkin to my good friend Tom, who’s a real dope artist as well, that THIS Dope 45 will be now known as “The Rassler” instead of the Wrestler. Tom had me in tears when he said he and his brother used to say “Rasslin” and “Rasslers”, which I thought was indigenous to some folks I knew in the projects. HA! Sweet. Thanks Tom.

By the way, my sister would continuously try to convince me that wrestling was fake and of course, for many years I defended wrestling. I was positive that when Rowdy Roddy Piper cracked Jimmy Snuka over the head with a Coconut, that it HAD to be real the way he fell over the chair and everything. The Bliss of Ignorance.

Speaking of Coconuts…these joints are BANANAS!!
