This is how Philly’s finest amuse themselves when grounded. DeSean Jackson, on injured reserve, and Meek Mill, temporarily banned from performing, staged a proxy rap battle between two of their proteges last night. Michael Vick, newly benched, was there too. The only active member of the group was rapper T.I., who just got out of jail. The scoop comes from Crossing Broad, which pieced together the story from a series of tweets.
Just hours after handing out Christmas gifts to homeless families in West Philly with rapper T.I., DeSean Jackson apparently lost $10,000 on a rap battle between a member of his posse and Meek Mill’s entrant, Lil Snupe, who is 16.
Later, or maybe before, they all hung out at T.I.’s album release party. The $10,000 appears to be going to Strawberry Mansion High School, one of 37 slated for closure.
