While filming some Angles, Drew’s phone froze on him…he freestyled this piece. He is the Truth.
Hip hop artist. High school teacher. Slam poet. Garbage Pail Kid collector. Award-winning filmmaker. Transformers movie discrepancy pointer outer. Much could be said about Drew Anderson, aka Droopy the Broke Baller, but if it ain’t good, it probably ain’t true. This wily rascal and two-time DC/Baltimore National Slam Team member is wanted in 0.5 states, unarmed, and minimally dangerous. That is, unless you count his dangerously hilarious knack for spoofing contemporary pop and hip hop songs and converting them to compelling treatises on academia (“Failin’” from Jim Jones’ “We Fly High (Ballin’)”) and etiquette (“I’m A Jerk” from R. Kelly’s “I’m A Flirt”). Whether bearing witness to his zany hosting style at various events throughout the DC area or his unpredictable dynamic as a featured artist in venues from his native New Orleans to Toronto, many have found themselves inspired by the satirical ravings of the Impoverished Imp. And if you’re not careful, children, you may find yourselves next.
