"Muslim Heat Vision"

More

Spencer's new catchphrase is almost as awesome as "Ice, Ice Baby" coming on at the end of this segment. Muslim Heat Vision indeed.

On a sidenote, all this talk about Muslims has got me wanting a decent bean pie. My Pops makes the best, but says the bean pies on the street, these days, aren't so good. Apparently they haven't been the same since Elijah Muhammad died. Back at Howard the brother's used to eat them with a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream. The Muslim Sleeping Pill, they called it. I think I like Muslim Heat Vision better.

Born in 1975, the product of two beautiful parents. Raised in West Baltimore -- not quite The Wire, but sometimes ill all the same. Studied at the Mecca for some years in the mid-'90s. Emerged with a purpose, if not a degree. Slowly migrated up the East Coast with a baby and my beloved, until I reached the shores of Harlem. Wrote some stuff along the way.
