It’s a winter Friday and even normally gloating is LA is murky and miserable. So on an afternoon like this, it’s imperative that we celebrate the worst of human achievement– which is often the best. And DJ Cuzzo D delivers with his Bad At Rap mix, originally done for Dublab. This is just a masterful collection of the most wretched of random rap — from Joey Lawrence and Hulk Hogan and the Wrestling Boot Band, to Dee Dee Ramone, Brian Wilson, and David Faustino. There is Gerardo and there is Vanilla Ice. To top it off, he includes Darryl Strawberry’s “Chocolate Strawberry,” which is unquestionably the prized piece of my vinyl collection. The entire tracklist is below the jump (thanks to So Much Silence for apprising me to this mixes glorious existence). This is like “whoa,” the Joey Russo version, not Black Rob.
