You’ve probably seen it before. The uncomfortable equivalent to shooting one’s shot. An aspiring artist approaches an established one with a single goal in mind: spit bars or die trying. The logic, of course, being that said bars will be so undeniably incendiary that a deal will be presented right then and there. Sadly, more often than not, it leads to an awkward silence. Some, like 50 Cent, have no quarrels with squashing an up-and-comers dreams right then and there. Lest we forget this little gem. Others, like T.I, have opted for a more polite approach – thanks but no thanks, if you will. It would appear that time is at an end.
