“The "Sound Barrier Experience" a new band in Philly, sounds so much like The Roots. They need an opportunity, Thorobred, there lead MC is comparable to Black Thought. I wonder if they will be at The Roots picnic.”

“That's sad man, real sad. If "they" are good enough, they won't need the bump a comment on PW will get them.”

“McManus, you are a lazy journalist. The answers to your banal questions about DMC's voice are readily available, and yet you didn't even bother to check Wikipedia (the lazy journalist's best friend). Laaaaaaaaazy.
And should you bother to do a little research, you're going to feel like a jerk for inadvertently mocking a man with a debilitating medical condition. Or rather, you should feel like a jerk.

Have you ever heard DMC speak? Why is his voice so high? Why does it crack like he’s going through puberty?”
