The adrenaline-driven rapper goes by the name Rufio Jones. He recently released a project titled Tears of Joy.
And no, this is not the first time he realizes he’s good at rap. You were a part of an experiment. Thanks for your contribution to science.

The fellas have done it again. After a few listens, this record is a really nice experience.
The 5th annual TEDxDetroit happens on Wednesday, October 2nd. It features a smidge of the movers, shakers, and rabble rousers of the Greater Detroit area.
And now, a little about me:
While he won’t be on the main stage at this year’s conference, TEDxDetroit board member Hubert Sawyers will continue an important role in the annual conference.
He’s the man behind the music.
Since 2010, Sawyers has been the TEDxDetroit Director of Music, responsible for bringing Detroit…
I am jealous that I don’t rap like this anymore.
Here’s a response I wrote on this article on Deadline Detroit, which seemingly has been removed:
This op-ed just sounds bitter. I mean, are we really trying to have an Office Space-esque discussion of “What, exactly, do you do here?!”?
I think people who read can understand what Dandelion does, Lorimer-verbosity be damned. There isn’t anything really wrong with their website copy. It is focused on a particular audience. If you don’t like what you see, then it is not likely for you. Semantics exists, but that doesn’t seem to be a real interest here.
On top of that, it seems Lorimer is getting business. He employs people; people who obviously understand what they do day-to-day. If we want to know how that happens, why doesn’t someone just ask them?
Yes, the initial driver of the meme is relevant and was amusing. Was it bad for business? That’s up to Lorimer to address. The focus of this piece doesn’t really do anything to add to the discussion.
This made me wonder how you earned your standing in being able to waste my time. A part of me wanted to not respond and pray this would get placed in the vacuous crap pile, but I felt it right to highlight inanity of this. That’s why you wrote this, right? Hopefully Dandelion’s stakeholders are smiling at this comment. Many of us know news pubs can use all the help they can get.
I should just leave this alone, but I spent the time on it. It should be seen.
Gnarly. Rad. Totally Awesome.
