MC Mars, Your Rappin' Cabbie

In the "you never know who you'll meet" department . . . cabbing back from Deco Lounge on Friday night the boyfriend and I picked up a cab piloted by rappin' cabbie MC Mars. We first conversed when the boyfriend commented on the beats coming out of the stereo, which led to a story about how someone had tried to buy that very same beat from Mars while riding in his cab earlier that week for the bargain bassment price of $20. Turns out that the MC has published a book of San Francisco cab stories, gotten some good press, and occasionally puts out some music with some of his homies. Check out his site for a little video of the man doing his thing, musically and automotively, and maybe you'll be able to pick up a beat-ific ride one night too.
