The Original Mr. Metro
While riding the subway today, I called myself "Mr. Metro". The dialogue in my head was about eco-friendly modes of transportation and with metro being the French word for subway, the term Mr. Metro came naturally. (Note to self: check yourself into a mental institution for observation).
So I'm calling myself Mr. Metro, when all of a sudden I catch myself singing a local rap song from back in the day. Devon was a Toronto rapper who recorded "Mr. Metro", a song about Toronto police racism allegations. MuchMusic would play the video now and then and I always thought it had a raw, gritty charm.
I found the video on YouTube. There are some Toronto street scenes in there for good measure.
On an interesting side note, I just learnt from Devon's Wikipedia page that he's now a police officer for the RCMP. Go figure.
