83-Year-Old Rapper Starts Making Media Rounds

Yesterday, 83-year-old Downey resident Stanley Hoffman (a.k.a. Kwayzar) was a topic of conversation on Current TV’s The Young Turks. All thanks to his unlikely Reddit-relaunched rap song “I Can Still Do It.”

FishbowlLA’s favorite part of “I Can Still Do It” is when Mr. K rhymes erectile dysfunction with compunction, junction and “ain’t my malfunction.” Kudos to Scotty Chevelle (music), Cody Klintworth (filming, editing) and everyone else who helped grandpa lay down this instant-classic octogenarian rap. Gawker, also, for being first on Monday to the Reddit revival.
